I just recently figured out how to install wine1.5. My primary purpose is to use Exact Audio Copy without having to reboot back to Windows.

I re-downloaded the installation executable, ran it, and installed it into my external hard drive. When I then tried to get wine to run it, it will give me the initial "Exact Audio Copy is starting up... Please Wait!" but then a second window opens. The second says the following message:

"Unhandled exception -

[X icon] at 0207ADF0 -> ACCESS VIOLATION"

Cancelling the window or hitting "ok" cancels wine entirely.

Any ideas?

  • Why don't you just use one of the native Linux audio extractors, like sound-juicer?

  • EAC is generally regarded as the best ripping program due to the quality of the rips. Is sound-juicer as good?

  • If you have a decent drive, then it doesn't matter what program you use, you will always get a correct rip. For older/buggy drives, sound-juicer uses the original bad rip correcting program: cdparanoia.

I did the following to get it working:

cd ~/.wine/dosdevices/c\:/Program\ Files\ \(x86\)/Exact\ Audio\ Copy/

or wherever you installed EAC to.

regsvr32 sql*

Goto EAC options (F9) and Change the interface to "Installed external ASPI interface".
