File name Case problemsNote: Many problems running Windows programs on Wine can be solved just by putting the file in the correct case (lower case usually).
If using the chcase perl script for UNIX, just go to the offending directory and run the following command to get all the files (in this example) into lower case:
chcase -r -d '*' (goes through subdirectories)
chcase -d '*.*' (just files with the *.* format in the present working directory)
Chekcell (a program made with the Pascal like Borland Delphi) runs quite nicely under Wine/Linux but you may want to install some Truetype fonts if you want to pretty up the Chekcell screen. Also, at present you cannot view the result files and print via Windows wordview. (An FAQ on How to Install and Convert Fonts is located at: http://www.westfalen.de/witch/wine/ch-installation.html#s5.4.6)
Download the Chekcell ZIP file from your closest CCP14 based mirror via the LMGP suite for Windows by Jean Laugier and Bernard Bochu tutorials page
Extract Chekcell using the command: unzip chekcell.zip
(Keep the case of the program and subsidery files as they are. The *.pos files need to be a mixture of upper and lower case file names to work)
Now run chekcell.exe (make the exe's lower case if not already) using the command:
You can also tell Wine to emulate a certain version of Windows in case this is what the program wants.
wine -winver win95 chekcell
