sorry to trouble you. I googled my question first, but most links are to http://winehq.com
which is apparently down. I'm fairly new to linux...I've tried it on and off. I'm tied to this one application for windows, but for most other things I can probably use linux.
However, I'm trying to get this program going on WINE and I've copied all the required dll's but it requires some registry entries to be found or it won't load. So in windows I exported the hive with the values that it requires into a .reg file and stored it (I know that these are the only registry entries it requires because i can take the program over to a bare windows install and run the program if I merge the .reg file to the current computer's registry (by right clicking and selecting merge)). If I run the program without the .reg files on either the windows or using WINE then it gives me a "corrupted installation" dialog box and quits. However, the moment I merge the .reg file with the registry, it runs flawlessly (in windows...not WINE =)
So my question is...is it possible to get WINE to read that particular .reg file that I exported? or if not, how can I merge that with WINE's registry? (or does WINE not have a registry and so I'm SOL?)
Thanks for the help!
