Slick Edit on wine
« on: May 18, 2009, 11:26:46 am »
Hi list,

I have SlickEdit 6.0c running on wine 1.0.1 on Ubuntu 9.04. However SlickEdit dos shells are not working. The initial process shell in the 'Build' tab of the 'Output' toolbar gives the following error when using Win95 or Win98 emulation:
    Visual SlickEdit Process Shell for Windows 95 Copyright (c) 1994-1996

    could not create console_stdin_handle

When using WinNT, 2000, XP emulation the returned line is just:


Does anyone have experience with wine like this?

My net goal is to run linux make from within the SlickEdit process shells. The shell macro itself (in file: doscmds.e function:dos() ) is
returning no error, yet the above error does get to the Build Output window.

Stupid question time:  Is there any possibility you might upgrade to a more recent SE, since the one you are using is ~8 years old?

Or use the native Linux version of SlickEdit. I'm certain that could invoke Linux make!
