how to install windows applications with wine


Hi,
I am a newbie to Linux.
I have installed only linux and removed windows completely.

Presently, I use wine for some applications. Howevber, when it comes to installing them, i was not able to accomplish that.

I tried with matlab, mathematica, office, visual c++...

I am using Mandrake 9.2., and the default wine package it had.

Also, how to install windows after installing mandrake as the main os? I tried with bootfloppy. But, when windows asks for restart, it directly loads linux again.

Please help me in either of these.

Regards,
Shyam

Not to answer your question but more question one of your answers.
Why are you trying to install Visual c++ in Linux?

You do realise you have the most extensive array of compilers at your disposal already right?

Ya,
I agree. I am using KDevelop now. But, I have developed some applications with VC++, which inclued cluster computing aswell. But it fails to run correctly in linux. So, I need to have VC++ temporarily for porting my code to a more general form (Linux).

I am impressed with Linux to that extent that I "removed" windows from my hard drive. Now, i am facing difficulties as I am still ina "transition" from windows to linux.

Also, I need a good equation editor, where you can copy and paste the equations directly. (the open office editor doesnot suppot it right?)

So, the question still is huv to install applications?? Or, how to install windows after installing Mandrake?

Regards,
Shyam Sundar

You might have to checkout Codeweavers Crossover Office to see if Vis C++ will work under that. The down side is that it's not free.

solution

To have both Linux and windows on your system, use the fdisk in linux or cfdisk to create first a FAT partition, followed by an ext3 partionon and then a Linux swap partion. Then reinstall windows follwed by Linux and you will have a nice dual booting system. When you do transport your visual C++ to linux code, just go back and remove the fat partion and repartion the HDD.

BTW the best Linux distro to use to work with Windows is elx or Everyones Linux - it is RedHat like in the sense it uses RPMs, but it is far superior to RedHat and the wine version is very well compiled in it.

I found it just a couple of weeks ago and am thrilled. Just waiting for the new version 3.0!
