What works

After some small manual correction of the installation (see bellow) everything seems working well.

What does not

As is mentioned in the bug 10558 during the installation instead of file with filename "VERSION" in the sub-folder "Data" only temporary file "ver2e0d.tmp" is created. The file "VERSION" remains empty.

To use the program is enough to rename this temporary file to filename "VERSION". (Thanks to Austin English who reported it in the bug report for version 2006)

Additional Comments

Generally speaking the installation works except of above mentioned problem with the incorrectly created file. Nevertheless installation is buggy and therefore I should fill maybe for "Installs?" value "No". Except of this I didn't find any other problem until now. Rating Silver could be suitable for this case.

SRIM Installation issue

This howto comes under the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 2.5 Generic (


Relevant SRIM Versions: 2006 thru 2008.5.

Credits: Stano Antalic (

To overcome the infamous "Run-time error '62': Input past end of file" problem on a fresh SRIM installation, while a fix is being made,  you can try the following:

Please Understand the following operations involve modifications on your system. The author (Giuseppe Dia) cannot be held responsible for damages and miscalculations. Don't follow the steps outlined below if you don't feel confident.

Download the SRIM installation executable.

$> mkdir SRIM_EX

Put the SRIM installation executable inside the newly created SRIM_EX directory. This should avoid top directory cluttering.

$> cd SRIM_EX

$> wine SRIM2008.exe

The last step will launch the SRIM extractor.  Check that the extraction points to the newly created directory (in this example SRIM_EX) and press the Extract button,

Now launch setup.exe

$> wine SETUP.exe and follow the installation normally.

Launching SRIM2008 for the first time will result on the infamous "Run-time error '62': Input past end of file" on every attempt to do something useful. This issue is related on an empty VERSION text file in the Data/ directory inside the program directory.

We're gonna fix this simply by copying the right temp file (created during the installation) over the VERSION file.

Navigate towards the SRIM program directory

$> cd .wine/drive_c/Program files/SRIM

$> cd Data

$> ls *.tmp

you should get something named verXXXX.tmp with XXXX randomly variable. In my example it will be ver 5532.tmp. Yours may be different.

$> cat ver5532.tmp

look into and see it's the right file. It should be something like this


SRIM-2008.03 SRIM software version.

See VERSION.rtf for details.


if you have the right file just copy it over VERSION

$> cp ver5532.tmp VERSION

Try to run SRIM now, it should run fine.
