I want to add the bthprops.cpl dll (The bluetooth control panel applet) to my wine install under Ubuntu 10.04 since it is required for Dolphin Emulator. http://www.dolphin-emulator.com/

I copied the file from my windows install into the System32 folder in .wine and into the folder where the application I am trying to run is, but wine still fails to load it. Is there anything else I need to do to make the dll accessible for wine programs?

(Please don't suggest the native linux Version of Dolphin as a fix - it is not working for me)

  • Copy the file next to dolphin.exe, it worked for me – user74392 Mar 31 '11 at 21:04

You can download any .dll, then use regsvr32 to register the file then launch it:

regsvr32 dll_file_to_register
rundll32.exe shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL controlApplet.cpl

For example:

wine rundll32.exe shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL appwiz.cpl
