HowTo / Notes

HOWTO (Basic) Install TMG (5/6/7/8/9) into the default wine c drive ­(Updated: 2018-05-03)





Wine 1.6.2 or greater is recommended
NOTE: Instructions vary depending on the version of The Master Genealogist (TMG) you install.

  • For versions 5/6/7 you can install with no special settings;
  • For version 8/9 direct installation is only possible with a workaround for the installer.

The advice listed below is only for
those who require help installing, running, or troubleshooting TMG.

TMG 9.05 USA Version http://www.whollygenes.com/files/tmg9setup.exe
TMG 9.05 UK Version http://www.whollygenes.com/files/tmg9uksetup.exe



Installation:

Run the installer (you download) using Wine (substituting the correct version name):







wine tmg7setup.exe



After installation and before running program for the first time


With Wine set to "Windows XP" use the script Winetricks to install the following:


  • vb6run
  • gdiplus
  • msxml6  *  
  • wsh56  *

(* Optional - only needed if you are installing On This Day/­Second Site/TMG Utility into the same wineprefix (See advanced howto )


Using the following command:


sh winetricks vb6run gdiplus


Then using winetricks choose: native_oleaut32


(Optional but recommended)If you have Windows XP Licence.  Copy the following font to your wine font directory ( c:\windows\Fonts\ )


  • wingding.ttf


* Visual Chartform (Graphical Charts) just works in wine 1.6.2 or greater.
* Text Reports and Preview just works in wine 1.6.2 or greater



For Help to Work


To use help in TMG 7.04 (+Visual Chartform) or greater install the Linux program xCHM and then using xCHM navigate to the following directory in your wine install:


C:\Program Files\The Master Genealogist\TMG.chm


C:\Program Files\The Master Genealogist\Vcf2.chm


Note:Help file for TMG 5.15 & TMG 6.12.00 work with no additional programs needed (As they use the .hlp format for the help files)


Running TMG for the first time:

Use the icon created on your desktop "The Master Genealogist"


Or run the following command from a Terminal


wine "C:\Program Files\The Master Genealogist\tmg7.exe"


Note: Before running any reports/charts in TMG for the first time  go into TMG's File > "Printer Setup" and change the Printer to *selected and choose your printer eg:in my case "HP Laserjet PS" as well as choosing the correct paper size and tray. Other wise you will see the following error:


"no printer is installed so the document could not be constructed."


To workaround the installer bug 34989  for tmg8 & 9 installers

Run wine to create a profile.

wine tmg9setup.exe /extract

* This will create two files  tmg9setup.msi & drive.cab in the same directory.

Note tmg9setup.exe will not run without the /extract at the front. It will fail due to bug 34989


The above command extracts the MS installation file which runs OK with the following command (add path to file as required):


wine msiexec /i tmg9setup.msi


Follow TMG's installers prompts

Troubleshooting:

  • Use the latest version of Wine. Type 'wine --version' if you are unsure.
