I've been trying to start Dreamweaver 8 in Wine with winetricks installed in Ubuntu 10.04LTS and it would simply show that it was loading and then stop, so I decided to try in the terminal to see what I would get and I recieve.

 wine Dreamweaver.exe
err:module:attach_process_dlls "odbc32.dll" failed to initialize, aborting
err:module:LdrInitializeThunk Main exe initialization for L"C:\\Program Files\\Macromedia\\Dreamweaver 8\\Dreamweaver.exe" failed, status c0000005
doxramos@doxramos-laptop:~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Macromedia/Dreamweaver 8$ 

odbc32.dll is installed within the libraries and is in my System32 Folder inside of Wine. Does anyone know what could cause this issue? Thanks in advance.

Enabling Mdac27 and 28 within Wine Tricks seems to have fixed the issue. If anyone else has this issue type ./winetricks in a terminal windows. Select the default wineprefix Install a Windows Component or DLL Then select Mdac27 and Mdac28 and follow any on screen commands you have.
