# Linux – How to run todolist from abstractspoon in linux

compatibilitylinuxtime-managementUbuntuwine

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:
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:LdrInitializeThunk Main exe initialization for L"Z:\\home\\user_name\\Progs\\todolist\\ToDoList.exe" failed, status c0000135


• 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.

#!/bin/bash
wget http://winetricks.org/winetricks
EXE="winetricks"
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.
