Running BASICtools.exe under linux/unix Wine (lpc812 eval board)

Post by Ivar »

BASICtools.exe runs perfect under Wine ! However I needed a small hack to make it recognize the serial port on startup.

1) make a textfile, say “wine-serial.reg”, with the following contents:

Code: Select all

REGEDIT4

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\HARDWARE\DEVICEMAP\SERIALCOMM]
"COM1"="COM1"
2) make a script, say “startBASICtools.sh” with contents

Code: Select all

wine notepad &
wine regedit wine-serial.reg 
wine BASICtools.exe 
3) run the script :

Code: Select all

$ ./startBASICtools.sh
The reason I start notepad is that the key is volatile : it disappears when wine exits. Starting a long running program like notepad keeps wine active. Notepad can be closed after BASIC has started.

The following startscript without the use of notepad worked for me too. However it depends on regedit making the change during startup of BASICtools before it looks for serial ports.:

Code: Select all

wine BASICtools.exe &
wine regedit wine-serial.reg
