1

At the command line, run $ winecfg

 

2

Set the library overrides for dbghelp to (native, builtin), and accept the warning about overriding this DLL

 

3

Set dbghelp to native by using winecfg

 

4

Copy the application source code plus executable(s) to your bottle

The path must be the same as the compiled version; that is:
 
If Windows source = C:\Source\SampleApp, under Crossover it must be
C:\Source\SampleApp

 

5

Copy any Side-By-Side assemblies that are used by the application

 

6

Import the source code into Enterprise Architect (optional)

 

7

Create a build script on a package

Set the path of the application on the Debug tab, and set the Use Debugger field to Microsoft Native

Build

8

Open the Profiler (Analyzer | Profile)

Visual Execution Profiler

9

Click on the Launch button (first button on the Profiler window)

 

10

If the sample didn't start, click on the Sampling button (third button on the Profiler window)

 

11

Once you have finished profiling, shut down the application (not Enterprise Architect)

 

12

View the Sampler report by clicking the View Report button (fifth button on the Profiler window)

Access Violation Exceptions

Due to the manner in which WINE handles direct drawing and access to DIB data, an additional option is provided on the Debug window toolbar drop-down menu to ignore or process access violation exceptions thrown when your program directly accesses DIB data

Select this option to catch genuine (unexpected) access violations; deselect it to ignore expected violations

As the debugger cannot distinguish between expected and unexpected violations, you might have to use trial and error to capture and inspect genuine program crashes

 

Notes:

  • If WINE crashes, the back traces might not be correct
  • If you are using MFC remember to copy the debug side-by-side assemblies to the C:\window\winsxs directory
  • To add a windows path to WINE, modify the Registry entry:
     
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment
