Linux – How to run todolist from abstractspoon in linux


I want to run the ToDoList (any version from 5.3 to 6.2) in linux (ubuntu 11.04)

I've tried to use under wine 1.2 and 1.3 without success:
   1 - I've downloaded the program (;
   2 - unpacked it;
   3 - and use the "Open with Wine Windows Program loader";
   4 - the mouse cursor starts thinking and stops after a few seconds and nothing happens.

I've also search the net for help but still haven't found a solution.

After I used the command line "wine ToDoList.exe" it gave me:

wine: cannot find L"C:\\windows\\system32\\plugplay.exe"
err:module:import_dll Library MFC42u.DLL (which is needed by L"Z:\\home\\user_name\\Progs\\todolist\\ToDoList.exe") not found
err:module:LdrInitializeThunk Main exe initialization for L"Z:\\home\\user_name\\Progs\\todolist\\ToDoList.exe" failed, status c0000135

Please help 🙂

  • The MFC42u.dll library is a Visual C++ runtime library that does not come by default with WINE.

    winetricks should be able to get the script for you.

    chmod +x $EXE
    $EXE vcrun2005
    $EXE vcrun2008

    Put the above script somewhere (your home directory, preferably), and make it executable. Run it, and it should be able to get winetricks for you, as well as the VC++ runtime redistributable libraries.
