I have tried to install an unsupported application. The program (pTouch from Brother) opens, but gives an error. When I shut down the error message, the program closes as well. The error is:
Unhandled exception: unimplemented function gdiplus.dll.GdipSetPathGradientPath called in 32-bit code (0x7b83c592).
I have tried to install NET framework and MS Visual C++ 2008 (9.0), and set gdiplus.dll to built in (Wine), but that did not help. Any other suggestions ?
Install Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable
and Platform SDK Redistributable: GDI+
and see how that goes. Do this in a fresh bottle without .NET and other stuff in it.
I managed to find a copy of pTouch here:
How well it will work with your printer depends on how well it is supported on Linux. Don't try to install windows drivers in CrossOver. They do not work
Seems some ptouch printers are supported:
silviu@pangolin:~$ apt-cache policy printer-driver-ptouch
More info about the linux driver here:
The Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable and Platform SDK Redistributable: GDI+ did the trick 😊
