I have never really dabbled in Linux but maybe you can look for a updated distro/package that handles Access databases? (Just a shot in the dark, Aurora is ran using VB and MS Access.)

No, there is currently no fix for the Type 13 Mismatch error generated running Aurora under wine.

I've managed to get Aurora 2.  50 running under wine 1.  2 (escaping Error 13):

NOTICE: I believe only step 1&5 are needed, but I list all my additions just to be on the safe side:
Code: [Select]
1) Get winetricks (http://wiki.winehq.org/winetricks)
2) winetricks vb6run
3) winetricks mfc42
4) winetricks mdac28
5) winetricks dcom98

Optionally, "winetricks tahoma" for the Systemview screen and it's fonts. 
If you're on the parts of the world that use the "," for a decimal separator, launch the game with
Code: [Select]
LANG="en-US" wine Aurora.exe"
in order to set the needed regional settings. 

Now, I do get the occasional warning, but nothing gamestopping.   I have been playing for about 100 hours now. 
The Warning about some logging function is unnerving, since it does seem to grow exponentially in pop-ups every time it happens.   I just kill the game and restart, as this seems to be at the end of the loop and doesn't corrupt the DB. 
I'm having the feeling that most of the warnings I get are from the game itself and not from wine (at least that's what many of the posts in the bugreporting thread suggest)

If you feel like taking a peek in the db, grab the "mdb tools" from hxxp: mdbtools.  sourceforge.  net/

It may be a bit of necro but it is still useful information.

"winetricks dcom98" no longer works with latest versions of Wine/winetricks.

Not all of the following steps may be needed but that is how I got it to forget about error 13 in ShowMinerals:
1)Set your Wine configuration to emulate win98
2)get dcom98.exe (e.g it can be downloaded from microsoft.com)
3)open a console, go to the directory with dcom98.exe and type "wine dcom98.exe /C")
4)write or select c:/windows/system
5)go to Wine configuration again and set special settings for Aurora.exe - in the Libraries tab add ole32, oleaut32 and rpcrt4

If your Wine installation is messed up and it didn't work you may consider using "rm .wine/drive_c/windows/system32/ole*;WINEDLLOVERRIDES="ole32=n;rpcrt4=n;oleaut32=n" wine dcom98.exe" instead at step 3.

Thanks, nonickch. I wouldn't know where to dig without your post.

gravedigging to say that following the instructions I got it to work under MacOs, using wineskin because I'm just lazy that way.

only a questino remains, in the system view screen (f3) some of the top icons have only a black outline instead of the actual icon. it's not a problem, but if you know a quick solution I'd like to know  ;D
