Where are my Files


Hey everyone I have a question I have installed wine and installed some win applications with it but How do I run them they are in C:\Program Files (or the fake wine dir) but I can't seem to open them I had read that you need to put the path in double Qoutes because of the spaces I tried this but to no avail what I am trying

wine C:\Program Files\WinZip\WINZIP32.EXE I get this message

Cannot Find C:Program

ANYHELP WOULD BE COOL

Thank You Andrew

first there is no such thing as a c:\ in linux, so thats your first problem, and second you can't use spaces like you did rather you have to put a \ before the space for example "/Program\ Files/WinZip...

Try using : wine C/Program\ Files/WinZip/WINZIP32.EXE instead.. or, in my case, it would be : wine .wine/c/Program\ Files/WinZip/WINZIP32.EXE .. check to make sure you've got the correct path first ..

u must type it in quotation marks for it to accept spaces

wine "C:\Program Files\WinZip\WINZIP32.EXE"

*try using a lower case c if that doesn't work

now that i got that message above to you i'll go into a little more detail....first things first, if your trying to run winzip from a preexisting windows partition then you'll have to specify the path something like this:
wine /mnt/win_drv/Program\ Files/WinZip/winzip32.exe
where you will replace win_drv with your whatever your mount point is....
and the other way to run it is if you are running winzip through the fake windows directory that you made in you /home/user/.wine directory....which in this case the command would be something like the following:
wine /home/user/.wine/c/Program\ Files/WinZip/winzip32.exe
where "user" is the name of your folder in your home directory, for your normal user..

and the oneandonlySM is right about one thing, you can enclose a command in (" ") quotes if it contains spaces, but that is the only thing that he said that is valid as the command syntax is wrong...

Thanks I think I got it

Hey thanks I figured it out this is what I did

I typed cd $HOME/.wine/c
then
cd "Program Files"
then
cd "Winzip"
then
wine WINZIP32.EXE

Seems to work

Thanks for your help
