error running sunbird with wine on ubuntu 6.06

When attempting to run Sunbird under wine on ubuntu 6.06 I receive the following error message in a window entitled:

Microsoft visual c++ runtime library

runtime error
then a reference to the path to Sunbird
R6034
An application has made an attempt to load the C runtime library incorrectly.
The other portable apps from the portable apps suite run well under wine.[I'm composing this while viewing the forum using firefox portable].

Thanks in advance for any assistance

Should Work

It should work as I test under Ubuntu 6.06 with Wine. Be sure you've updated to the latest release of Wine (0.9.29) and are running Sunbird Portable 0.3 (the help.html will tell you). I just verified it from a fresh install and it worked correctly.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Does Work - Thanks!

As soon as I updated my repositories to fetch from winehq, everything worked. Is there a way to change to a different, more legible font for all the apps? The default on my system invites eyestrain?

Thanks in advance,

Install Windows Fonts

If you install the Windows Fonts (Tahoma, Verdana, etc) it should work. I don't know how to do that under Ubuntu, though. When a Wine app can't find the appropriate font (and it can't w/o the Windows fonts installed) it uses your system default, I think. There might be a Wine setting for the default, but you'd have to check with the Wine site. If you find the answer for either or both, please let us know.
