wine...nothing works


ive gotten very little amounts of programs to work in wine. mainly, the ones i HAVE gotten to work, have been pre-installed on my NTFS windows partition. if wine is not an emulator, whats is it and why isnt it working ? nothing installs, or, if it does install, it doesnt run.

Copy the files that you want to use to your LINUX partitions. Then edit WINE's configuration file for the program. Either pick native DLLs or WINE's DLL. Read WINE's documentation several times to understand it. Don't forget to backup the configuration file everytime you run WINE.

WINE is an OS emulator. Its very, very, very hard to predict how an OS works. Emulating a machine is much easier. You can predict the outcome of the data very easily.

I noticed that wine doesn't run programs installed in WindowsXp... It complains about ntdll.dll. So I only run programs installed in Win98 or installed under Linux.
