WINE question


When running WINE I often get this message:

When you are running with a native NT directory specify
'Profile=<profiledirectory>' or disable loading of Windows
registry (LoadWindowsRegistryFiles=N)

I think it might solve a few problems with running several programs such as MS Word. My question is what is that <profiledirectory> arguement? What is a profile directory?

I'm using Windows XP Pro, if that matters.

Thanks in advance.

* I assume that it would like to write to the profile dir. In the profile dir there are user personal settings stored.

* I do not have any experience yet with wine, but try to disable the registry settings. This might result that user specific settings are not stored. If it ask this question ut must be able to write to a profile dir, to store the user specific settings. In NT all profiles are stored in C:\Winnt\Profiles\Username

Maybe this dir must also exists and defined ?

--Conclusion---

Try to make the C:\Winnt\Profiles\Username and specify the Profile=<profiledirectory>

Good luck
