ignoring drive Y:


I have a problem with wine, and searching for a solution, I only find others asking the same question.

Whenever I attempt to run wine, I get:

Could not stat /home/john/.wine/${HOME} (No such file or directory), ignoring drive Y:

In my wine config, I have:

[Drive Y]
"Type" = "network"
"Path" = "${HOME}"
"Label" = "Home"
"FileSystem" = "win95"

winesetuptk tells me this is OK:

>>> Checking drive X settings:
022. Checking Path option... OK.
023. Checking Type option... OK.
024. Checking Filesystem option... OK.
--> OK.

I have tried various alternatives, to which winesetuptk responds with:

>>> Checking drive Y settings:
025. Checking Path option... BAD (no Path option given in config file).
- ADVICE: The syntax of the Path option has to be something like /my/mount/point.
026. Checking Type option... OK.
027. Checking Filesystem option... OK.
--> PROBLEM.

Can someone tell me (and all the others with this problem) what I'm missing?

shouldnt this config part:
Code:
[Drive Y]
"Type" = "network"
"Path" = "${HOME}"
"Label" = "Home"
"FileSystem" = "win95"
be like this:
Code:
[Drive Y]
"Type" = "network"
"Path" = "/home/john"
"Label" = "Home"
"FileSystem" = "win95"
Try to change that in your config file.

Thanks chups, I had tried that, but got errors; but another try, and this time it was accepted.

BUT, then I come up against another obstacle:

[john@localhost cdrom]$ wine SETUP.EXE
[john@localhost cdrom]$ fixme:msi:MsiEnableLogA 00000516 "X:\\Office 2000 Premium Setup(0012)_MsiExec.txt" 0
fixme:msi:MsiSetInternalUI 00000005 (nil)
fixme:msi:MsiInstallProductW L"J:\\data1.msi" L" "
Call not implemented

Do you know what this means?

Cheers
