hello, i have this problem, trying to emulate a program (strongdc) through wine and the only thing keeping me from doing so is a dll that's required: powrprof.dll (why did the guy have to implement automatic shutdown to it???)
at first it couldn't find it so i copied the dll into ..../windows/system/ or wherever it would work or i would get a different error message
ok so anyway, the exact error is:
[gabbath@host Strong DC++]$ wine StrongDC.exe
err:module:LdrInitializeThunk "POWRPROF.dll" failed to initialize, aborting
err:module:LdrInitializeThunk Main exe initialization for L"D:\\Program Files\\Strong DC++\\StrongDC.exe" failed, status c0000142
i got the dll from my xp installation so i thought i might change the version in config to winxp but alas... as an alternative i found a native powrprof.dll that's being worked on and at least allows the applications using the library to load:
this link is in relation to the one above, i think it's the first one the guy posted:
the bad part with this patch is that i don't know how to install it. there are more files there and i read through the discussion there but i'm still puzzled (don't even know which i'm supposed to get from there). can anyone be so kind as to help me install this? i installed wine from rpm and it would be great if i could install these patches/diffs or whatever without having to recompile wine. i don't suppose it would be necessary to do that just for one extra dll... oh, and then there's the config file that's to be changed to load the dll....
please help me,
