Additional Comments

Workarounds to correctly complete GUI installation are described here: 1. Download winetricks 2. winetricks ie6 ie7 win98 ie6 alone does not crash the application, but always pops up some kind of "open or save?" dialog when the server sends embedded html files. Switching to win98 fixes the installer issue 3. Run the v20(or later) installer. 4. winetricks winxp vcrun6 comctl32 5. Get the MIT kerberos client and copy comerr32.dll, k5sprt32.dll and krb5_32.dll to the system32 directory. 6. Run Circ.exe or whatever module and enjoy

HowTo / Notes

How to install and run aleph


You will need 3 DLLs from MIT Kerberos client for Windows:




All of them are to be copied into your wine C:\Windows\System32

You will also need MFC42u.dll and COMCTL32.DLL, which you can get through winetricks by doing "winetricks mfc42 comctl32"

Both these 2 DLLs are fundamental to avoid crashing the GUI after logging in.

Probably also needed:

winetricks winxp vcrun6

Do a complete install of the stand alone version of the GUI, otherwise you will miss aleph own DLLs like log2vis.dll and others.

Launch the Aleph module .exe from wine, like wine Circ.exe or Catalog.exe, etc.
