Vvvv in WinOnX (Wine)


#1

trying to run vvvv in Mac OS X with the help of WinOnX (a simple version of Wine). the problem is that I can’t get the ActiveX component entry to be set in the registry (checking the box doesn’t work).

is there another way to set this entry? what is the name of the registry key?

(by the way, crack.exe makes vvvv look pretty ridiculous, why this silly name and this kindergarten animation?)


#2

strange…

AddFlow3.ocx is in
\lib\thirdparty
so you could try to go there in a commandline and run:
regsvr32 AddFlow3.ocx
(which is exactly what crack is doing) and hopefully it returns a meaningful reason for not being able to register the component.


#3

I found something inside Lassalle website that led me to have activex running on ubuntu 11.04, wine 2.10.8. Unfortunately I can’t track back the link and lost the file: hope this can help anyway.
This is vvvv_45alpha27.1-develop-792b70c70dfc2cc987614c2ae8b9369102a9ead3

I’m still fighting with missing plugins, and no way to see something in a renderer.EX9.

Ciao

Installing VVVV on Ubuntu 11.10.
Wine runs crack.exe.
All is green but red AddFlow ActiveX-Component.
Found SetupAddFlow5X.msi here: http://www.lassalle.com/download.htm.
Setup goes fine.
Back to crack.exe.
Still red.

helo vento,

have you tried what i described above?


#6

Hi Joreg. Yes, sorry i didn’t read the whole post before.
Registered AddFlow3.ocx in \lib\thirdparty with regsvr32.
Got a message that wine folder was not owned by me something like that.
Changed permissions with this: ^code:
sudo chown -R your_user_name:your_user_name wine
^
Then it asks me for mfc42.dll. Got it from here: http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dll-files.shtml?mfc42. Put it inside \lib\thirdparty.
Registered both again.
Now everything is green in crack.exe
Run vvvv.exe then splashscreen forever, never patch window.


#7

k, then now try starting it with
/logstartup
and post us the resulting .log file next to vvvv.exe here.


#8

be interested to see if OpenGL renderer works in Wine though. There’s a possibility of getting OS-level GPU support through Wine + OpenGL


#9

I’m getting the same vvvv45 splashscreen with no activity
/logstartup doesn’t output anything (though that might be because stdout is somehow broken in their ‘dos prompt’)


#10

ah ok
so the log goes into a text file! not the stdout
here it is attached.
basically seems to hang at opening directx9. can we stop it doing that?

here’s the log contents:

#16

Has anyone experiences installing vvvv on Mac OS X under Codeweavers CrossOver? I’m using CrossOver 11.3.1. Don’t know on which Wine version it is based on.

crack.exe says at first start that DirectX 9 and .Net 4 are installed. With a click on the WebSetup button I can download and install Visual C++ Runtime. After that all External Dependencies boxes are green.

I’m stuck at installing the AddFlow Active-X component. I tried Windows XP and Vista bottels. I did’t find an installer that causes no errors and I was not able to register AddFlow3.ocx with regsvr32. Is there a chance to get it run or is it hopeless trying to install vvvv in CrossOver?

Thanks in advance.


#17

what does it say if you try to register AddFlow3.ocx?


#18

Would be great to have official support to make it possible to run vvvv under Wine. Should be a good answer to all ‘is it running on Mac’ questions until a cross platform version is released. Even Autodesk went this route as a transitional solution when it became clear that you just can’t ignore Mac OS X. Thanks.


#19

I tryed vvvv running on Wine about 4 years ago on my Slackware Linux box.

Then I installed Windows, just to use v4.

What you are doing is a waste of time ! Even if you fix some Wine issue, remember that vvvv is great also because you can use devices, so you should fix a lot of driver issues.

Life can be easier :)

fibo:
v4 is almost the only thing that’s keeping me in Windows.
I want to go Linux 100%
