TwrTrainer Mac Conversion


Recommended Posts

I’ve been able to convert VRC to run on current Macs using the Wine environment, and am trying to get TwrTrainer converted.

 

In doing that, I know that it’s using VBasic runtime 6, and can get it to start up, and give the login credential message, but I get a problem from Wine when I have asked the program to open an .apt file (even the sample one).

 

I’m hoping you could tell me what the dependencies are for TwrTrainer. Knowing those, I have a fighting chance at the conversion. If it works, I can roll up a stand-alone Mac version that could be distributed.

 

Am trying with even less success at present to do same for vSTARS and vATIS, same info would be helpful too.

 

Thanks for having written and maintained these!

It's been many years since I wrote TWRTrainer and I have no idea what dependencies it may need on a Wine system, but a search of the forums here revealed that some users were able to get it to work on some systems after installing and registering the following activex controls:

 

mswinsck.ocx

msflxgrd.ocx

comdlg32.ocx

 

Maybe you need these files?
