    I needed "volnum" before "vcrun2008", otherwise the install of "vcrun2008" errored out with a message stating: "Extraction Failed - Unable to find a volume for file extraction".

    Once I added that, it (sort of) worked in Debian Squeeze. Vixen doesn't seem to like to quit sending data...

    First, I tried playing back a sequence with only the adjustable preview enabled, which worked.
    Second, I setup the symlinks and registry entries and playback worked, it wasn't happy when I hit stop half-way through a song. I was able to ctrl+c the terminal and get out of vixen after a couple .net/vixen errors.
    Third, I decided to play a whole song. This had the same result as stopping mid-way through a song. Once the song was over, the Vixen window was unresponsive. It re-draws if I switch to and from the application, but I cannot access any menus using hot keys, nor mouse. I cannot move or click any buttons in the sequence window (which wasn't maximized) and the terminal keeps spitting out a mix of these three error message:
    Code:
    fixme:ntdll:NtQuerySystemInformation info_class SYSTEM_PROCESSOR_PERFORMANCE_INFORMATION
    fixme:thread:NtQueryInformationThread info class 16 not supported yet
    fixme:bitblt:X11DRV_ClientSideDIBCopy potential optimization: client-side complex region clipping

    I am having very similar problems with Mint. Still working on a fix. I'm not sure why it's more functional with one flavor of linux than another.

    Did you have a controller hooked up while you were testing? Which plugin were you using?

    Renard plugin with a Renard SS8 hooked up. The plugin gave no errors when starting playback and the Renard was dancing. After the song was over and I couldn't click the sequence window, I clicked the "X" to close Vixen and received an error that read "Port close: Object reference not set to an instance of an object." After that, I saw a window I've seen a few times in windows: "(Router) An output plugin caused the following exception: Value cannot be null. Execution has been stopped."

    The (Router) error you mentioned, for me, has occurred when Vixen has had a second "hidden" instance of Vixen running at the same time.

    Not sure if there is a way similar to the .bat file script to check for multiple instances of Vixen while working under WINE. I'll check into it.
    Cheers!

    I've seen A "router" error before when something else was holding the serial port open, but this one mentions a null reference. I think the other router error message I saw was something like "access denied to com1" or similar.

    I like to use a program called htop to watch and end wine processes. When started with sudo it's quite powerful. I use it to kill stray wine instances. They're easy to pick out because the path starts with C:\ instead of / haha! :D

    Please let us know if you still have the end of playback error after killing any other stray wine processes.

    I'm Getting and 'Access to COM1 port Denied'.
    I did the symbolic link and can see it in the .wine dosdevices directory
    I'm, running Ubuntu 12.01 and the COM1 is an Enttec DMX USB Pro plugin (it is the RPM USB to DMX Adaptor V2.0 - Full Parts Kit (FT245RL pre-installed on board).
    but even the Generic Serial Tosses the same error.

    My guess would be the permissions to the device you symlinked. Is it /dev/ttyUSB0? Is it plugdev? Are you in plugdev? I ask about plugdev because it's the typical group that device nodes are created with by udev rules on most popular distros.
