hmmm, are you in c:\ when you try to run it? Or better yet switch to c:\program\ files\WinMX\ and run it.

try adding this to your ~/wine/wine.conf or ~/wine/config file. Make sure you have all these DLLs in your DLL folder, and that the DLLs are from a windows 98 machine and not a NT/XP one. http://www.dll-files.com/ can hook you up with DLLs.

[AppDefaults\\winmx.exe\\DllOverrides]
"commctrl" = "native"
"comctl32" = "native"
"ole32" = "native"
"oleaut32" = "native"
"rpcrt4" = "native"
"shdocvw" = "native"
"shlwapi" = "native"

Smile Wine/XWine & WinMX

First, to launch and choose good parameters for Wine, use XWine (tar.gz, RPM or source).
With the Wine version installed in my distro (Mandrake 9.1), with default parameters (dll natives), WinMX 3.31 launches quickly and well, one slight malfunction, the complete downloaded file is not renamed, (the INCOMPLETE_name remains). But uploading people see a "normal" complete file.
If WinMX does'nt work with your Wine version, update Wine first. Don't try to use buit-in dlls !

Another information : if you were addicted to XNews (like me) for downloading multimedia files from Usenet, try to launch it with XWine/Wine. It works fine !

And if you can't no longer use Audacity to work with your audio files (libary conflict on the new Mandrake 9.1), install the old Goldwave 4.26 (not GPL, not even free, but ...) and wait for an updated version of Audacity.

Wine is perhaps not yet perfect, but it improves, it's GPL and you remain in Linux environment, far from DualBoot or commercial, slow, virtualmachines (VM...something!)

Hope you have solved it, if not i recommend checking a couple of things:
1) you shouldn't use a NTFS partition for incoming files: write support still sucks
2) unless you have a good reason not to do so, you should set the windows version (section [Version] of config) to win98

also, if you get errors about fonts, be sure to include the right dirs under [FontDirs]

I use a "out of the box" Wine031016: dl source tarball, unpack in /tmp, run tools/install (if i remember well), you can install it as user or 'su' and run 'make install'.
Winmx runs great on debian testing, without any windoze dll, it only has 2 problems:
1. GUI seems to slurp a lot of processing power when visible. Walkaround: 'nice' it, ie launch it with a script/alias as such:
nice wine c:\\path\\to\\winmx.exe
and launch it in a workspace on its own
2. if you open a lot of whois and browse windows, it eventually fills up memory due to a known BUG in winmx not free-ing allocated GUI memory. However unless you keep it going for weeks you won't notice it, since lost memory (a few kb per window) will stay on swap partition

However, time as come for a native winmx-interoperable GPLd P2P
When I'll have some spare time I'll try to extrapolate the protocol specs (I can't understand why guys at frontcode didn't realease them... do they still believe in security through obscuration? C'mon, we're in year 0x7d3 !)
