The Tomtom device makes itself a network device, not sure why.
Ok. Did you test if this software runs on wine, before you used VBox?
No. How do I do that?
I just now installed wine. Now, the Tomtom application is a little tool
that sits in Windows toolbar and when it detects the device connected to
a USB port, it opens a browser and goes to Tomtom's update web page.
From there on, I think it requires .Net and Flash to do the rest of the
stuff. Can this be done in Wine?
I'm not sure, but in the past I run all kind of things on wine. Even
realtime, wineasio does work, but with to much MIDI jitter for my taste,
however, a DAW like Reaper works, older versions of iTunes also work, so
Internet access is possible, if I remember correctly without setting up
the network myself.
*google* http://wiki.winehq.org/winetricks/ should install flash.
I'm in a similar situation as you are, but before I installed VBox and
XP as guest, I tried to use iTunes with wine.
Your last resort is to bite the bullet by installing XP to your machine.
I would rather not do that. My last resort is to use my work laptop
(Windows 7) to do this. Besides, I am trying to get this done without
having to reboot my Debian machine.
I understand :). Who wants to have a Windows installed ;)?
I hope you get it working on wine, if not, try VBox or another virtual
