Hi,

I use Manager as accounting software available at www.manager.io on Ubuntu. For the xenial puppy Linux I converted .deb file to .sfs using alien2puppy utility. When I invoked Manager, nothing is happening.

I even tried directly installing .deb but no use.

Please help.

try running from terminal, I expect you are missing library files

running from terminal will tell you why it is not running

Smile

also what version of puppy are you using, 32/64?

I tried to install and run this program.
Also used the deb package for Ubuntu to install it.

There is something wrong with the deb package.
The files to run Manager are Windows DOS exe files.
Those are not Linux.
Have to try a different Linux package.

Looks like they made a deb package of Windows files not Linux ones.

Do the docs say anywhere to use this package over Wine?

Really did not look into the docs for it.

The deb package is made for Ubuntu.
Ubuntu may already have Wine in it or something.
I really do not know much about Ubuntu.

After running from terminal I recieved error /usr/bin/cli: No such file or directory

I came to know that the run script is invoking application like below

/usr/bin/cli Manager.exe "$@"

Looks like it is invoking mono which runs the exe file.

How to install mono on xenial puppy

I get as far as a missing ETO Framework...using Wine and modifying the /opt/manager-accounting/manager-accounting to this:

Code:
#!/bin/sh
cd /opt/manager-accounting
exec wine ManagerDesktop.exe "$@"


then run from the command line to show the error:
Code:
root# wine ManagerDesktop.exe


Unhandled Exception:
System.InvalidOperationException: Could not detect platform. Are you missing a platform assembly?
