Can't Intall WineX


When I do ./tools/wineinstall I get:

Quote:
Invalid path 'c:\windows' for windows directory: does not exist
Perhaps you have not properly edited or created your Wine configuration file.
This is (supposed to be) '/home/starnix17/.wine/config'
Registry install failed.
How do I fix this?
Thanks

In your home directory, did you make the directory .wine? If not, do
cd ~
mkdir .wine

and you should be fine

.wine is there. I did try to install Wine before so there might be files from Wine laying around, but I don't know which ones to delete

If you don't have any mission critical data in the .wine directory at all, like no old windows programs, remove the entire directory. Or better yet, just move .wine to .wine.old or something, then run wine? I've come across things where old config files will goof up the new ones.
