M2000 Installation in Ubuntu

A new revision 46 with a new help2000.mdb is ready. This revision is same as 45 except for the new file and use ACE.12 not JET.4 as provider for ADO to connect.

To get mdb support in M2000 in ubuntu (help system has a mdb file) you have to use wine 1.8 (wine 3.0 can run M2000 but has no mdb support, or if anyone find a way just write bellow)

From console:
sudo apt-get install wine1.8 winetricks
wine wineboot
winetricks winecfg

Now open a dialog:
           1. choose windows 7 or 8.1
           2.library override oleaut32 (native)

From console:
winetricks vb6run art2kmin mdac28

From Menu Wine -> Explore C
Place M20000language.exe and execute it








For Installation in Windows we have to download Access 2007 runtime, from Microsoft.
Revision 46 is same as 45 except for the way that access help file. Revision 44 works using Jet.4 and Help2000.mdb has mdb version Access 97.
