invoke WABI application from outside WABI?

Post by Bob Ha » Thu, 22 Jun 1995 04:00:00

Is it possible to invoke a MS-Windows application (the runs under WABI)
from outside WABI?

What I would like to do is to make a MIME association for MS-Write
and MS-WORD documents to invoke the apprpriate editor under WABI.
I can have WABI running already.

My environment - Solaris 2.4 on a SPARCstation 10, WABI 2.0 with
MicroSoft Office installed.

1. questions about Wabi. WABI <---> WIN95 applications??


I'd like to use microsoft word and some other window application (visio) on
my solaris 2.5.1 workstation.

I have wabi 2.2 rev A installed on my workstation, but found out
that it is asking for WIN 3.1.  

My question: is there a Wabi release to run Win95 applications and not
just just Win 3.1 ?  

Has any one actually used Wabi to use word 6.0 (I'd rather use Word 7.0, but
that requires Win95). Has anyone also used Visio on Wabi?

Can one run any Windows application on Wabi? or some subset? how large
is this subset? is Wabi the best UNIX environment to run windows applications
on? I have heared of something called soft-windows, but know nothing
about it.
