Thanks Armin, that sounds like what I need. I'll try after work and let you know. -GEF

Or maybe I can squeeze it into my lunch break:

All it had was

[GCA4CRCCheck]
4.0.423=-1

I added the lines from your post, and now it starts up just fine. Thanks.

Has anyone found an answer for the print blank problem?

Also along the same lines - customizing of sheets causes a no options avaiable & porting them just plain fails.

We might try copying your .wine folder and seeing if the problem is in my installation.
I have been having this same problem. GCA works (including QuickView), but printing just results in a blank PDF (using CUPS-PDF) and the print preview is blank as well. (And nothing but xml exports).

Has anyone figured out a solution for this?

If it helps, these are the errors that come up in the GCA Logging window when I try to use the print preview:
Code:
Print: Loading charactersheet.gcs.
Print: Device is PDF
Print: PaperSize is 1
Print: Using sheet options from: charactersheet.gcs
modPrintReport:PrintReport: Action: Setting script control: Error -2147467259: Automation error

Print: No options found.
modPrintReport:PrintReport: Action: Setting script control: Error 438: Object doesn't support this property or method
Also, there is no GCA.INI file in my GURPS Character Assistant 4 directory... Maybe that has something to do with it?

I also get the following errors in my console window:
Code:
err:module:import_dll Loading library oleaut32.dll (which is needed by L"C:\\windows\\system32\\windowscodecs.dll") failed (error c000007b).

Default Re: GURPS Character Assistant under Wine for Linux

I'm running Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, Wine 2.0.2 and I've install GCA b4.0.423. GCA will not work for me. When I try to open it, I get an error box saying, "ModForms:BuildSmartBar: Error 30001: Unable to open the picture file '%1'".

Any help would be appreciated.

Do you have a printer driver installed? GCA actually needs one to work. Just install CUPS from the repository.
