Hi there,

Are you sure that you had no other windows emulator, like CrossOver?

If this is not the case, what kind of program are trying to install? I believe wine does not support every .exe applications. You might just have an application that is not supported by wine.

Otherwise, give us a bit more details on what exactly you wish to do.

Wine Is Not an Emulator :P remember that
I'm not using any other compatibility platform, no. maybe i should
i am just running the autorun.exe which opens the main installer menu.
i know it works because I have done it before, before i reinstalled i had the entire suite working, all installed in the same way that i am trying to install this one.
maybe i'm missing a system file that i had before??


ubuntu, wine
