I’m trying to “beat the system” in a sense where I would like to get the EXE file I created with HTML Executable and run it on a Mac. The EXE file is essentially just a single PDF file that loads as an EXE.
I’ve downloaded wine bottler (http://winebottler.kronenberg.org/), and as I go to run it (and believe me, it gets sooooo very close to actually running), I receive an error that says:
Cannot load DLL: C:/Users/…/Temp/wPDFView03.dll
And, then, “Cannot load PDF Viewer engine.”
Does anybody happen to know a workaround, so that I can create a Mac application file with the EXE I created with HTML Executable?
It’s due to the wPDFView03.dll used by HTML Executable to display PDF files. This DLL may have additional requirements not necessarily available in the Wine implementation. For instance, is Microsoft GDI+ available in your Wine installation?
It’s the correct runtime module. But make sure you don’t create a stand-alone publication (lite publication). Recompile your publication so that it uses the runtime module (it will look for the latest runtime compatible).
