winecfg fails to connect to mount manager
Last modified: 2009-07-20 10:41:51 EDT
Description of problem: using after creating ~/.wine directory with winecfg the drives tab in winecfg gives this message. "Failed to connect to the mount manager, the drive configuration cannot be edited". this is not a problem for executing programs but for instance after installing Photoshop CS2 the program won't run because there is "no room left on the hard drive".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):1.1.18-1
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install wine
2. create .wine directory with winecfg
Actual results: c drive is not mapped by wine
Expected results:c drive should be available by wine programs
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
This seems to rebuild to the proper ~/.wine/system.reg file:
wine rundll32 setupapi.dll,InstallHinfSection DefaultInstall 128 /usr/share/wine/wine.inf
All of that belongs on one commandline.
From what I have seen the MountMngr section (among others?) is missing from the ~/.wine/system.reg file.
The above command adds more things like the %ProgramFiles%, etc environmentvariables that are also missing.
In case anyone wonders.
The commandline from my previous post comes from the top of the tools/wine.inf.in
file from the wine git repo checkout from winehq.com:
the problem was not with wine but i had some permission issues with my home folder. when istalling fedora i mounted a drive in my home folder so there were issues. i've re-installed fedora and it works fine.
The problem no longer occurs for me with a fresh install of F11 and wine 1.1.23-1.fc11. I think it may have had something to do (in my case at least) with also having codeweaver's version of wine installed.
Can this bug be closed now, since both Jeremy and myself no longer have the problem?
Sure. Thanks for reporting back.
