No, I didn't mean 'winecfg /path/to/exe', I meant 'wine /path/to/exe' .

Okay, here is how wine works. When you initially ran "winecfg", it created a directory called .wine inside your home directory. So, when you run "wine blah.exe" to install a program, it will install it into the "Windows Environment" that wine has created inside the .wine directory. If the installation completed successfully you can then run the program (well, maybe run it) by running "wine /path/to/new/exefile". For example, if you installed Macromedia Fireworks (which I have), I run the program by executing "wine ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Macromedia/Fireworks/fireworks.exe". You'll need to look through the "drive_c", which is the fake Windows drive to see where the actual program is. If you tell me what the program you are trying to install is, then maybe I can give you some more specific information.

Please list what program you are trying to install and the exact steps you have completed thus far. People don't mind helping, after all that's why were all here, but we can't read your mind. The more specifics the better.

Alright I want to install Bitcomet. I have gone into the terminal and typed winecfg. From there I have clicked the tab Applications, clicked add application found the bitcomet .exe file and there was the file name on the list along with default settings. I then clicked apply and then ok and that is how far I am.
