Schematic Error
by Alan Cranbury on Wednesday January 23rd 2013, 15:09
I've successfully installed Altium, but when I try to create a new schematic, I get an error.

Access violation at address 1921F02C in module 'AdvSch.dll'. Read of address 00000000 at 1921F02C.

I'm running Gentoo with Wine 1.4.1, is there anything I can do to try to fix this?

Did you install mdac28 and msxml4? You can use winetricks to do that. That's all it usually requires.

Yeah, that was in the comments, so I made sure to run winetricks before I installed Altium.

Try running it with WINEDEBUG=+loaddll and have a look at the DLLs that load when you start the program and any that load when you try to open/create a schematic. I've used Altium 10 with the latest version of Wine on Scientific Linux and it seems to work fine, so I'm sure it's something in your setup.
Installation and using
by Alex Fliker on Friday August 31st 2012, 15:14
Here are my several pieces of advice. First - for running install without errors copy and ulib.dll from your system32 dir of Windows installation in the corresponding dir of wine. Second - disable the use of DirectX by the AD. To do that open a project, go to preferences, PCB Editing and find DirectX related settings and disable it (or you won't be able to work with PCB). Third, if you got an error screen just press on keyboard button Enter. In most of the cases it helps. If not... kill it when DE with asks you for this. So, fourth, never forget to use Ctrl-S as often as you make some changes!
