I´ve installed a tax-programm (aldi Steuer 2020) with playonlinux.

Installation went well, wine-mono and wine-gocko were downloaded and installed.

The tax programme asked me to enter my activation code during installation which I did. Everything successful so far.
I ceated a starter and playonlinux displays the respective icon.

But the programme fails to start. Apparently the tax programme cannot be found/located. sad

Here´s the error-log:

 Running wine-5.0.3 start.exe /wait /unix $target (Working directory : /home/rosika/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/drive_e/drive_c/ProgramData/Microsoft/Windows/Start Menu/Programs/Steue0016:err:ntoskrnl:ZwLoadDriver failed to create driver L"\\Registry\\Machine\\System\\CurrentControlSet\\Services\\NDIS": 00000001

wine-version used: 5.0.3 (64 bit)
WIN-version selected: WIN 8.1

I need this programme.
Can anybody help please? frown

Many thanks in advance.

I seem have found a solution:


Since the original starter didn´t work I created a new one (iconized differently).


Clicking on that one did produce a window, namely a file-manager. This one showed the entry "Steuer 2020" and clicking on it (from this location!) got the tax programme running.


No idea why that "workaround" seems to be necessary and I found it just by chance but at least the programme seems to run. wink


Many greetings.
