How to run Windows apps under Mandrake 9.1


Heu Guys

I read somewhere that theres an emulator that allows you to run Windows apps under Linux - I think it may have been about SuSE but I'm not sure.

Anyone know?

Thanks Guys

Help

It's an old thread, but it came up as a "similar" thread when I posted a new thread that was (coincidentally) "similar".

The "where the f*** is wine" is a good one. I am the newb of course but it appears to me that the only way to acquire Wine is via linux (Ubuntu, in my case). I tried to "download" it using IE and in WinXP to no avail. Could be wrong, of course, but that is just what I think I know at the time.

You can install Wine using YaST. Then run
Code:
winecfg
to set it up.

See http://www.frankscorner.org. If it works under Wine, then this place will probably be able to tell you what to do to install it.

Also see http://www.codeweavers.com. Their program isn't free, but it works very well for some rather tricky software. Just search for it under compatability.
