Ah, let's see...
Sorry for changing the order of the words in your post, but I feel it's necessary for a better understanding.
I did finally find the executable and figured out what folder it was in, but when I try to put it there it says access denied. I have tried to log in as root and then I cannot find the dll.
First thing first. NEVER EVER use wine as root, unless you enjoy trouble. If you don't have permissions to write into a directory, then it's because you are not supposed to write to that directory
. This can be for a number of reasons:
- You are trying to write the dll file to some directory under /usr/, this is something you shouldn't be doing. Those directories are system directories and regular users do not need to touch anything there.
- You are trying to write as a regular user on the wine dirs or your root acount. Not advisable, and, as I said, you shouldn't run wine as root anyway.
- The permissions on your wine directory ($HOME/.wine/) are broken. Use the command below to fix them.
chown -R <yourusername>:users ~/.wine

The dll files usually go into one of these places:
- The folder where your program resides, usually somewhere under $HOME/.wine/drive_c/Program files/
