Additional Comments

WinMx stopped working with the introduction of the gecko engine instead of using mozilla activex in wine 0.9.17. WinMx utilizes a small embedded IE window for a status bar which is unnecessary for the function of the program itself so it's completely frustrating to see it not starting up because of this. WinMx works perfectly fine with wine 0.9.16 and mozilla activex control v. 1.60 installed. Anyone wanting to use WinMx should grab the old package or source and run WinMx under Wine 0.9.16 till the current issue is either fixed or till wine stops treating the embedded IE window not working as a fatal error.

HowTo / Notes


by nylly (January 17th 2009)

For Wine 0.9.60 and up

The only dll override needed now is for the connection patch, i.e. oledlg.dll.

A little tutorial on how to run WinMX on current WINE can be found here:
