A call for help! Winex and Diablo II on Mandrake.


Hello,

I just installed linux 3 days ago, so i know next to nothing, even though i managed to install winex 3.3 on mandrake 9.1 in 2 days haha. I still cant get it to actually use it. What i want to do is with winex run the diablo 2 instalation, people tell me its easy but i cant... they told me i shoud so something like in the konsole
/mnt/cdrom/install.exe so i did
[oscar@localhost oscar]$ cd .wine
[oscar@localhost .wine]$ /mnt/cdrom/install.exe
bash: /mnt/cdrom/install.exe: cannot execute binary file
[oscar@localhost .wine]$
I installed winex as a fake windows registry, and in home/oscar/.wine as you can see.

How could i solve this issue?. Please help me out. ANY help will be GREATLY apreciated.
Thank you,
Oscar

Ohh, for a .exe file, you have to run with wine

Install wine (www.winehq.org) and after as root:

cd /mnt/cdrom/

wine install.exe

Enjoy
