Wine: Error message: Warning: the specified Windows directory L"c:\\windows" and such


Code:
darknice@DarkNice:~$ wine
Warning: the specified Windows directory L"c:\\windows" is not accessible.
Warning: the specified System directory L"c:\\windows\\system" is not accessible.
Wine 20041019
Usage: wine PROGRAM [ARGUMENTS...]   Run the specified program
       wine --help                   Display this help and exit
       wine --version                Output version information and exit
darknice@DarkNice:~$

What should I do to fix that? I've been searching for 2 days now...

Do you have much stuff installed in WINE? If not, just try this
Code:
rm -r ~/.wine
wine
It'll delete all your wine config and your fake windows drive but then you're free to create a fresh config and start again. If you've got a bit of stuff then maybe just try deleting ~/.wine/config and use something like winesetuptk to create a new one.

You have a *seriously* b0rked system my friend. Try building from the sources rather than using a package.
