How to Run Win32 Console App in linux Console


I just want to say thank you in advance for any one that is willing to assist me.

I am trying to get a windows 32 bit console app to run in linux console.

I have tried DosEMU but it does not support 32 bit win apps.

I have tried wine but I get a invalid font and it is not running correctly.

Please advise me if there is a proper way to achieve my goal.

Thank you.

Use wine. It includes a program called wineconsole which is designed for exactly the thing you're asking about.

Could you recommend a good beginners web page to walk you through running a program through wine?
