How to: qu­ick guide on Watchtower Library installation
  1. Get the actual version of wine (Watchtower Library 2010 requires wine 1.3.11 or greater. Older Watchtower Library versions require 1.1.22 or greater, 1.2 or greater is recommended. Most modern linux distributions already have it in their repositories, so you just have to install "wine" package)
  2. Insert WTLib disc and run Setup.exe. If it won't work, do this:
    wine /cdrom/Setup.exe
  3. Installer would create working shortcuts on your desktop (on some systems in home folder), and in Applications > Wine menu. Use these to run Watchtower Library. You may delete *­.lnk files (if there are any), since these are of no use.

Common problems

Tooltip shadows stay after tooltips disappeared

This issue appears on some video cards with Compiz enabled. The workaround is in disabling fade animation for wine tooltips. To do this:

  1. install Compiz configuration tool. In most distributions it is in package named compizconfig-settings-manager.
  2. After you install it, run it (executable file named ccsm).
  3. Then go to Animations, open Close animations tab and double-click line that starts with Fade.
  4. Click plus sign in pop-up window,
  5. In new window select Window Class as Type, enter Wine as Value, select And as Relation and check Invert.
  6. Click Add button and you're done.

Watchtower Library 2010 does not work in wine 1.3.27 and greater

While this bug is not fixed you can fix it yourself. You need to remove a manifest for built-in version of MS runtime library. You can do this by executing the following code in terminal:

rm ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/winsxs/manifests/*.vc90.*_deadbeef.manifest

Watchtower Library 2010 does not work in wine prior to 1.3.11

You need wine 1.3.11 or greater in order to run Watchtower Library 2010.

OR, install the iphlpapi fix, DEB package (debian, ubuntu, mint etc) - RPM package (redhat, fedora, centos etc). You can then setup and run wtlib without upgrading wine to 1.3.11+.

Black blocks in interface and text on Intel video cards

If you use Intel graphics and experience blacked out text and interface items in Watchtower Library, (that is, experience bug 24998), you can fix it with following steps:

  1. Run wine regedit
  2. Open HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Wine/X11 Driver. Create it if it does not exist
  3. Create new String value (using context menu on right part of interface) named ClientSideWithRender and set its value to N
  4. Close (restart) all wine applications

Permissions problem with Ubuntu Lucid Lynx (10.04)

In Ubuntu Lucid Lynx (10.04) and derivative distributions you may face problem where Setup.exe on the CD is not executable, and you can't set it executable, since CD is read-only. There are two possible solutions:

  1. Use wine /cdrom/Setup.exe command mentioned above, or
  2. Copy all files from CD to your hard drive, mark Setup.exe as executable (right-click the file → Properties → Permissions) and then execute Setup.exe from there.

Broken fonts

If you see squares instead of text in Watchtower Library on the first run, go to settings (press f2) and change font settings, choosing any font you like. If you see broken characters in interface, you may need to install MS truetype core fonts for web package. To do this

  • Install msttcorefonts package using your packaging system. If it fails:
  • Install it using winetricks (this will affect your wine installation only, fonts won't be available for non-wine applications):
    winetricks corefonts

Problems with XFCE, LXDE, Enlightment and others

XFCE and some other DE ignore path parameter for desktop and menu launchers. As result, Watchtower Library prior to 2011 does not start when you click these. The simple solution is to change "Command" parameter in launcher to

wine start wtlibrary.exe

Watchtower Library for Mac OSX 10.7.3 "Lion"

There are some initial issues with using the Watchtower Library in Mac. The first issue is

Installing WINE

Simple solution: watchtowerlibraryformac.info

Or, you could follow the guide in the WINE wiki about installing Macports (MacOSX Installation). It is recommended that once you have installed MacPorts you need to configure it (How to install & configure Macports)

Do not install WINE but rather install wine-devel sudo ports install wine-devel for the latest WINE version.

You should also update X11, the default version is 2.3.2 which doesn't display all of the images in the Watchtower Library. The website XQuartz MacOS Forge contains the latest XQuartz (2.6.2). Once XQuartz has been updated you can run the Watchtower Library out-of-the-box with no issues.

To set up an application to run the Watchtower Library from the dock, go to Applications -> Utilities -> AppleScript Editor

Once in the editor copy & paste the following script:

tell application "Terminal"
    do script "/opt/local/bin/wine ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\\ Files/Watchtower/Watchtower\\ Library\\ 2010/E/WTLibrary.exe"
end tell

Click on run to make sure it works and then click on compile if successful and then save the script as an application filetype (Leave startup screen unchecked). Once saved as an application drag it into the dock.

Missing DLL File Errors

WINE in Mac doesn't seem to look for the DLL files in the same way it normally does. The DLL files it is referring to (Such as uresearch21u.dll) are located in the "MEPS Platform 2.3" folder in the Watc­htower directory. However WINE searches for them in the /drive_c/windows/system32 directory. Just copy and paste the contents of the "MEPS Platform 2.3" folder to the "system32" folder to resolve the issue.

Broken "Fetch from clipboard" function

If you copy multiline-text and a reference happens to be divided between two lines, the results can be a bit odd. This seems to be by design; wtlib seems to read the clipboard contents line by line. For example, if an article reads:

hechos recientes son más que los de antes" (Rev. 2:
19, 20).

Then wtlib will extract Revelation chapter 2, the entire chapter. This is due to wtlib reading just one line at a time. Now, in linux you can install xclip and run this command after having copied, say for example an entire article:

xclip -o | tr "\n" " " | xclip -selection clipboard -i

The command translates \newlines to spaces. If you do that before going Edit - Fetch from clipboard in wtlib, the correct references are extracted :D (Just Rev. 2:19, 20 in the example above).

You could even stick the command in a script and launch that from a button on your panel, or something.

I don't know how to do this in windows, but could be AutoIt would be a start...


 
What should I include when I submit a new test result?

Whether the install process went fine, or if not, what went wrong

Whether the program starts without any tweaks/modifications, or if not, what needs fixing/tweaking.

If the program runs, does the following work, or if not, what has to be done to fix/tweak it?

  • Search and navigation through the library
  • Tooltips (rest the mouse over a link)
  • Special characters like in Hebrew, and the */M signs in the Bible
  • Toolbar buttons just above the publications tree on the left, do they look good/ do they work?
  • Print (you obviously need to have a working printer setup in Linux first, wine will pick up CUPS printers at least. You can add cups-PDF printer if you have no physical printer)
  • Maps/graphics
  • Word list box
  • Add Favourites
  • Open Favourites
  • Settings
  • pronunciation (if you have a sound card and language version you are testing have this feature)
  • Synchronisation (if you have multiple languages installed)

did I forget something? just edit this note.


 
WARNING

Before asking for help,

  • Please make sure that you have followed the HOWTO instructions first (see above).
  • Also, make sure that your wine version is 1.1.22 or greater. In order to find out your wine version, open terminal and execute the following: wine --version. If your wine version is lower than 1.1.22, please, refer HOWTO for instructions on how to update wine.
  • If Watchtower Library code't work and you have updated your wine installation, you might need to remove .wine directory from home directory and re-install Watchtower Library in order to make it work.
If you are still here, feel free to ask for help, but when doing so, please, provide the following information:
  1. Your linux distribution and its version (For example: Ubuntu 9.10 or Ubuntu Karmic. If you don't know what version you're running, try lsb_release -a in a terminal)
  2. Your wine version (wine --version in a terminal)
  3. Which language version of Watchtower Library you are trying to install
  4. What does not work, and what have you done in order to fix it

Hi Igor.

I removed the .wine directory and executed again Setup.exe. Same error.

"Installer integrity check has failed. Common causes include
incomplete download and damaged media. Contact the
installer's author to obtain a new copy.

More information at:
nsis.sf.net/NSIS_Error"

nsis.sf.net/NSIS_Error reports problems that can cause this error (in Windows). But it's not download problem. Media is not damaged (I copied files to HD without erros). What can be?

watchtower library 2009 arabic
by Stefano_Bologna on Tuesday December 21st 2010, 16:48
ho installato wtl con wine 1.3.9 su ubuntu 10.010

in lingua italiana tutto ok. la versione araba mi causa problemi con il settaggio della finestra (a volte si vede solo il contenuto delle pubblicazioni non la colonna con indicati i volumi, libri, bibbia e il campo di ricerca)
I caratteri sulla finestra che descrivono i menu e i nomi delle pubblicazioni (svegliatevi, bibbia, indice, opuscoli ecc) hanno la forma di piccoli quadratini. Il testo in arabo fortunatamente si legge bene. Qualcuno può darmi indicazioni?

Wine Installation ver 1.2
by Ken on Friday December 10th 2010, 14:56
Very new to Linux but PC experience since 1989.
I have an ASUS motherboard. I decided to install the LTS version of Ubuntu, so it was 10.04 and not 10.10. This is pc for a person who is not at all computer literate.

WINE issue: I followed the instructions carefully on this web-page numerous times. I want to add one thing to the directions: AFTER installing WINE, I had to REBOOT the system before WINE would work for me. I was able to run "wine --version" and it replied with the l.2 (I didn't update to latest because this box was not tied to Internet) but WINE would do nothing more than show me the virtual c:drive. No applications would work.

After reboot,however, all the WINE applications had WINE icons and I installed WT_LIB 09 quite easily.

Unrelated hiccup: the Asus machine BIOS said AMD 64-bit but Ubuntu AMD 64-bit would not run so I eventually tried 386 32-bit version with great success so I learned not to trust BIOS.

Watchtower Library 2009 on Apple Mac
by rdchin on Wednesday June 23rd 2010, 23:57
This software, "Watchtower Library for Mac" looks like it's from a reputable brother who is following the license agreement. After installing his software, he requires that the WTL CD be used for its installation and he refuses to charge money (of course) but admirably, he also refuses to accept donations.

watchtowerlibraryformac.info/

I was able to install WTL 2009 on a mac laptop successfully using this software. Whereas the WTL 2009 failed to install under Codeweavers "Crossover Mac" commercial closed-source software. I am not a Mac user so I cannot say why it failed under Crossover, especially since both "Crossover Mac" and "Watchtower Library for Mac" both use wine.

Problems with launch wtlibrary09 on Ubuntu 10.04 Spanish
by Serge Muniz on Sunday June 20th 2010, 19:16
Hello!!

I have a problem with Watchtower Library 2009 Spanish.

My operative system is Ubuntu 10.04, with Wine version 1.1.42. I've installed Wtlibrary09-Spanish correctly, according the instructions of How To box. The problem arises when i click the icon on desktop (or the icon on Menu) and it seems start the aplication, but finally the app does not run. I've tried execute the app by shell with "wine start wtlibrary.exe", and the app does not start. in fact, the shell shows this:

" err:module:LdrInitializeThunk Main exe initialization for L"C:\\Archivos de programa\\Watchtower\\Watchtower Library 2009\\S\\WTLibrary.exe" failed, status c0000135"

Thanks!!!

Hi all,

shouldn't we link all bugs to 2009 version instead of commenting 'Same bugs as in the 2008 version. ' ?

Watchtower Library 2009 under Ubuntu Lucid Lynx (10.04) 32 bits
by dstas on Monday May 10th 2010, 3:59
Successfully installed and used WT Lib 2009.

Although some suggest to use latest wine 1.2 , I also successfully installed and used WT Lib 2009 with the earlier wine version proposed by Ubuntu repositories : wine 1.1.

Just follow the quick guide above or :
1. sudo apt-get remove wine (only if you want to remove earlier version)
2. sudo apt-get install wine1.2
3. wget www.kegel.com/wine/winetricks
4. sh winetricks vcrun2008
5. Install Watchtower Library 2009.
Here you may face problem where Setup.exe on the CD is not executable anymore under Ubuntu Lucid Lynx. Therefore in the Terminal, just find out in the WT Lib CD-ROM where the file ‘autorun.exe’ is, and type the following in the Terminal (probably this) :
wine /media/wtlib09e/autorun.exe
Then proceed with the installation.
6. see ‘Fonts smoothing’ guide.

Watchtower Library 2009 su Ubuntu 10.04
by Alessandro on Wednesday May 5th 2010, 14:36
Ciao!
Ho installato da poco Ubuntu 10.04 e wine (l'ultima versione), per installare Watchtower Library 2009 non sarà possibile installarlo come il solito.... bisogna copiare tutto il contenuto del cd in una cartella (a piacere), una volta copiato tutto il contenuto, selezionare il file setup.exe con il tasto destro del mouse, andare su Proprietà- sulla scheda Permessi- mettere il flag su Esecuzione: Consentire l'esecuzione del file come programma. A questo punto eseguire il file setup.exe con Wine, tasto destro del mouse Esegui con Wine.
Dopo l'installazione possiamo cancellare la cartella dove abbiamo copiato il cd.
Buono Studio.


Hello!
I recently installed Ubuntu 4.10 and wine (latest version) to install Watchtower Library 2009 you can not install it as usual .... need to copy the entire contents of the CD to a folder (to taste), once copied the entire contents, select the setup.exe with the right mouse button, go to Properties on the Permissions tab to put the flag-Run: Allow execute the file as a program. Now run the setup.exe with Wine, right-click Run with Wine.
After installation we can delete the folder where we copied the cd.
Good study.

Installing WTLib 2009 on Linux Mint 8. Help!
by Jimmy R. Coste Yost on Saturday April 3rd 2010, 20:28
I got Wine 1.1.4 trying to install 1.2.
Running on Linux Mint 8, same as Unbutu 9.10 Karmic, and WTLIB 2009 Spanish.

After various crashes i've uninstalled WT Library 2009, then uninstalled Wine.
After that deleted the .wine directory.

reinstalled Wine using this command:
sudo apt-get install wine1.2

then installed winetricks using this command:
wget www.kegel.com/wine/winetricks

after that installed the fonts and eviroment:
sh winetricks vcrun2008

when i did that got this error several times but finished well:
err:menubuilder:write_freedesktop_association_entry error writing association file "/home/jimmy/.local/share/applications/wine-extension-ini.desktop"

after that installed WTLIB 2009 Spanish. Installed just fine, but doesn't run.

What can i do?

strange graphics errors
by Arno Teigseth on Monday March 15th 2010, 1:00
Hi

I get strange graphic bugs: The cursor is miscolored and the shadow way off, and some (but not all) of the images/buttons are miscolored.

arno.homelinux.org/pix/milton-bug.png (the cursor looks ok here, but the screenshot is taken via VNC so it's not that cursor)

The computer is running Karmic with wine-1.1.40, which I believe is quite recent. Strangely enough, the cursor is only miscolored when passing over the wine window. Elsewhere on the desktop it's fine.
That and the fact that the images/buttons have more or less the correct shapes but wrong colors (see list window), makes me suspect the built-in S3 videocard. Maybe not one of the worlds 7 wonders that card there...

Suggestions on how to fix? I've tried playing with all "graphics" options in winecfg.

Installed but won't start- Suse 10.0
by Gymnart on Monday March 1st 2010, 11:48
I was able to install WTLibrary 2009 but when I click on the desktop icon, it won't start.

The workpath for the icon is:
/home//.wine/dosdevices/c:/Program Files/Watchtower/MEPS Platform 2.2
and the command (set up by wine 0.9.42) is:
env WINEPREFIX="/home//.wine" wine "C:\Program Files\Watchtower\Watchtower Library 2009\E\WTLibrary.exe"

I am running an older Linux kernel (Suse 10.0) and while I've tried out the newer Wine in Puppy I really didn't care for the way it handled the windows of one of my art programs. That's why I wanted to stick with 0.9.42.

More a question than a comment
by Enid Brown on Wednesday February 24th 2010, 15:31
I am new to the world of Linux. I find that there are many things I have to learn and sometimes I read things that make me have questions. Now is such a time.
I am reading how to install a windows program in Wine and I read this command. wine/cdrom/setup.exe ok this command makes sense to me but where to put this command in in wine is where I am having the problem.
How do I get to the area in wine as a matter of fact how do I get to any area in Kubuntu to put this information in.
I know this is probably a very simple thing for some of you to do but like I said I have just begun on my trek through a Linux operating system and for me sometimes things get really confusing.
For those of you who help me I thank you ahead of time for your patience.

Korean Menu Fonts

I'm unable to see menu fonts, only shows squares for each letter. In the main browser window the fonts that do show Korean are jagged bitmapped fonts.

I've added the korean language support and rebooted into English and Korean locales, but same issue. Any ideas?

Netbook remix
by Neville on Sunday January 31st 2010, 6:25
I have the library working fine with Kubuntu 8.04 9.04 and 9.10 64 bit with wine 1.1.37. I just bought myself a netbook, an Asus EeePC 1001HA to take away on holidays so thought I would install the library on it. I installed Kubuntu netbook remix on it and wine. I can't get the sound to work in wine on it and the library crashes every time I try to start it. Error message is.
The program WTLibrary.exe has encountered a seriuos problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
Now the silly thing is it crashes in windows 7 on it as well so is it a problem with the Atom CPU? Windows crashes with the "ureappframework22u.dll" so I wonder if this is causing a problem with wine on a netbook?

Splash Screen then Error
by Wesley on Saturday January 16th 2010, 17:05
Hello,

When I try to boot the new library, I end up with an error. I didn't even see that message until installing the vcrun2008. I have tried the steps on this page to no avail. When I intiate from the terminal I get this:
wesley@wesley-laptop:~$ wine start wtlibrary.exe
fixme:exec:SHELL_execute flags ignored: 0x00000100
wesley@wesley-laptop:~$ fixme:appbar:handle_appbarmessage SHAppBarMessage(ABM_GETAUTOHIDEBAR, hwnd=(nil), edge=3): stub
fixme:appbar:handle_appbarmessage SHAppBarMessage(ABM_GETAUTOHIDEBAR, hwnd=(nil), edge=1): stub
fixme:appbar:handle_appbarmessage SHAppBarMessage(ABM_GETAUTOHIDEBAR, hwnd=(nil), edge=0): stub
fixme:appbar:handle_appbarmessage SHAppBarMessage(ABM_GETAUTOHIDEBAR, hwnd=(nil), edge=2): stub

and then this prints out 6 times before the message pops up:
err:ole:CoGetClassObject class {96749377-3391-11d2-9ee3-00c04f797396} not registered
err:ole:CoGetClassObject class {96749377-3391-11d2-9ee3-00c04f797396} not registered

fixme:ole:CoGetClassObject CLSCTX_REMOTE_SERVER not supported
err:ole:CoGetClassObject no class object {96749377-3391-11d2-9ee3-00c04f797396} could be created for context 0x17

Finally "Watchtower Library has encountered a problem and cannot continue."

I'm running a slight variation of Ubuntu 8.10. I was able to run WT 2008 on Wine 1.0.1 'almost' perfectly, though. Any assistance would be appreciated. (Note: I have intermittent access to internet, so please be patient.)

Thank you,
Wes

WT Library 2009 (de) on Puppy Linux 4.31
by H. Schwarz on Monday January 4th 2010, 16:08
Went this way for Puppy Linux 4.31 (en) (released Oct. 2009)
Application: Watchtower Library 2009 (german)

1. installed version 1.28 of wine (as "pet")
puppylinux.asia/members/T/486_pet/wine-1.1.28-i486.pet
howto: puppylinux.org/wikka/Wine
2. (optional, but without this step you may need to change font in wtlib settings on first run) Install MS truetype core fonts for web package. To do this
* Install msttcorefonts package using your packaging system. If it fails:
* Install it using winetricks (this will affect your wine installation only, fonts won't be available for non-wine applications):

wget www.kegel.com/wine/winetricks
sh winetricks corefonts

3. Insert WTLib disc and run Setup.exe. If it won't work, do this:

wine /cdrom/Setup.exe

4. Installer would create working shortcuts on your desktop (on some systems in home folder), and in Applications > Wine menu. Use these to run Watchtower Library. You may delete *­.lnk files (if there are any), since these are of no use.

Fonts smoothing
Starting with version 1.1.12 wine supports fonts smoothing which makes fonts looking much better. By default, this option is disabled. In order to enable it read about the script. Here is a quick way to run it:

wget www.kegel.com/wine/winetricks
sh winetricks fontsmooth-gray

Unable to get it to run in karmic
by Peter on Saturday December 26th 2009, 11:42
I installed the 2009 version in 9.10 Karmic, but I can't get it to run. I just get brief hard drive activity, then nothing. Interestingly, the first time I installed it ( a couple of days ago), the hard drive kept running and the whole computer slowed to a crawl. After several minutes, I had to "kill" the process. I have reinstalled again, but now get no output. However, the 2008 version runs fine.
I am running wine version 1.1.35. on an update to karmic, not a fresh install. Actually, I have updated from 8.10-9.04, then to 9.10 and did the initial install of 2008 in intrepid.
I have uninstalled and then re-installed wine 1.1.35, as well as WTLB 2009.
But again, WTLB 2008 runs fine in ubuntu karmic 9.10
