Birthday Reminder may run in Windows and Ubuntu systems storing data into dedicated files or using a unique file, located in a Windows folder.
To achieve this it is necessary to create a symbolic link in folder /home/user_name/.wine/drive_c/users/user_name/Applicazioni/Zhorn Birthday Reminder (were the applications reads and writes in Ubuntu) which points to the file used in Windows containing reminders data: /media/ACER_WIN7/Users/user_name/Dati applicazioni/Zhorn Birthday Reminder/bdays.ini.
Birthday Reminder can be run by:
- shell command: wine "/home/user/.wine/dosdevices/c:/Programmi/Birthday Reminder/bday.exe"
- clicking on Wine icons: Birthday Reminder Setup (to manage remainders data) or Check Now (to show data).
What does not
The application needs that mfc42.dll be installed by Winetricks
