What works

I installed IE4Linux, MDAC, Jet 4.0 and DCOM to get the program to run. It required a copy of these DLL's, odbcint.dll and odbc32.dll. After that, the program seemed to run until. . .

What does not

. . . I tried opening it a 2nd time and came across bug #8424, where Poker Tracker won't run a 2nd time because of a change in the Product ID. This pretty much means that I have to reinstall to get the program to run again. 


What was not tested

Can't really test a program that requires a reinstall every time it closes, so nothing much was tested. Other than this problem, it seems to run fine.

Additional Comments

I've been meaning to get around to installing PT, but I haven't had the time as of recently. I'm hoping that I can get some fix or a hack from the PT forums that will fix this problem.

HowTo / Notes


Installing Poker Tracker:

Step 1 (If not done already): Install WINE from If you already installed WINE, I'd start with a fresh .wine directory. To do so, rename the .wine folder in /home/xxxxx/ (xxxxx being your username) to .wine_backup, then running winecfg.

Step 2: Run winecfg and change the default OS to Windows 98, then hit OK.

Step 3: Install Poker Tracker. Do not patch it. Make sure it creates a desktop shortcut. You can have it make a menu shortcut to if you want (Would be wise to do so in a window manager like XFCE, fluxbox, Enlightenment that doesn't put icons on the desktop by default, not necessary in Gnome/KDE).

Step 4: Modify your desktop shortcut (There might be two, one that has a .lnk extension, and one that shows the PT Icon. Do the one with the PT Icon) so that the command looks like this:

env LANG="en_US.UTF-8" LANGUAGE="en_US:en" WINEPREFIX="/home/corey/.wine" wine "C:\Program Files\Poker Tracker V2\ptrack2.exe"

Step 5: Launch PT using that Icon. You should get a database error.

Step 6: Type the following into terminal:


./winetricks fakeie6

./winetricks mdac28

Follow the installation screen for MDAC.

Step 7: Do DLL overrides for PokerTracker.


regedit ptrack-reg.txt

Step 8: Launch PT again through the desktop icon. You should get another database error.

Step 9: Install Windows PostgreSQL ODBC Driver. Make sure you launch this in terminal by using wine filename.exe, so you can check for stubs. This install hangs after it's done, once you get a stub about Dll, hit CTRL+C in terminal to crash the installer. Don't worry, it installed.

Step 10: We need to overwrite the MDAC Drivers to the 2.5 version. I'm not sure why the 2.8 Drivers have needed to be installed prior to installing 2.5, but it works.

./winetricks mdac25

Follow the prompts in the install.

Step 11: Launch PokerTracker through your Desktop Icon. Set it so that you have to manually check for updates, then hit OK. Click on Help-->About Poker Tracker, and you should not have the bad integer problem as before, but a working Product ID.

Step 12: If you have a menu shortcut for PT, you might want to modify the command so it matches the one I told you to put in on Step 4.
