I tried to install a windows program using Wine (from the terminal), and got the following result:

doctor:$ wine iview435_setup.exe
err:module:import_dll Library MFC42.DLL (which is needed by L"Z:\\home\\doctor\\Downloads\\iview435_setup.exe") not found
err:module:LdrInitializeThunk Main exe initialization for L"Z:\\home\\doctor\\Downloads\\iview435_setup.exe" failed, status c0000135

Please help.

I would appear the irfanview requires MFC42.dll. google search for mfc42.dll downloads and add the dll file you choose  to wine. you should find wine as a hidden file .wine in your home directory and as with win add your dll file to system or system32 folder. personally I find that geeqie with imagemagick added to the edit menu works as well for linux. iview is a great windows freeware though.

edit: you should realize that not all win applications will work with wine, here is a link to a db that you may find of use in the future.

adding: I installed wine 141 to a fresh  install of vl7l and then installed iview435 with out issue. the install added wine to the menu and iview was installed with a desktop icon along with a few additional icons. I opened a jpg. if it helps. mfc42.dll was a common request on win95/98 as I recall but was not ask for in this case.

What I think that I should have mentioned is that this was an attempted re installation of that program as a result of having to reformat my hard drive then re install Vector Linux onto my computer (I was able to install it previously using Wine with no difficulty). So how do I go back to getting it to install now?
