wine is emulating hte wrong os


i have set .wine/config to emulate win98, but if i try to install flash, it says im using an unsupported operating system (98 should be supported i think) and this doesnt change even if i change it to say winxp. also, if i try to install the dot net stuff (dotnetfx.exe) it says i am in windows 95. how can i make it so programs know which version of windows i am emulating?

If you look near the top of your wine config file, above the [version] section it lists all the drives and virtual drives on your system. Try changing the filesystem on c:\ to win98 theyre all set to win95 by default.

Hope this helps, I've never tried.

WINE REGISTRY Version 2
[wine]
"Windows" = "c:\\windows"
"System" = "c:\\windows\\system"
"Temp" = "e:\\"
"Path" = "c:\\windows;c:\\windows\\system;e:\\;e:\\test;f:\\"
"Profile" = "c:\\windows\\Profiles\\Administrator"
"GraphicsDriver" = "x11drv"
"ShellLinker" = "wineshelllink"
# [wineconf]

Scroll down in that file

Code:
[Version]
; Windows version to imitate (win95,win98,winme,nt351,nt40,win2k,winxp,win20,win30,win31)
"Windows" = "win98"
; DOS version to imitate
;;"DOS" = "6.22"
