To run program into wine you need install it in wine.
Run $ wine <path-to-installation-file>. (you need an exe installer, not msi file).
Then run it with $ wine <path-to-exe-file>.

First, run "wine" without any arguments. You'll be given a tabbed window with tons of configuration settings. There are a number of different modes and options, providing you with the ability to set global settings which affect all programs and program specific settings. For example, you might need to run some older programs in "Windows 98" mode and some newer programs in "Windows XP" mode.

There are two basic ways to run programs with wine:

1) "Fake" OS file system. This is the recommended way. This doesn't require any Windows partition. Instead, wine pretends to have an entire Windows file system to the program. This will install and run programs in a skeletal file system--actually just a subdirectory of your ~ directory (e.g. /home/anasmich/.wine/).

and

2) "Real" OS file system. This mode can sometimes be used if a program won't run in the recommended way. This uses a real Windows install on its own partition (you'll have to figure out how to install Windows yourself). This method is generally not as compatible nor as flexible as the recommended method.

If you can run the programs you want with wine in its default recommended mode, then you don't need any Windows installation. But you don't need to remove Windows.

As for your error, why did you type in "--" in front of "archicad"? If you indeed typed in "wine --archicad", then it's going to search for a file named "--archicad" or "--archicad.exe". But my experience with Windows programs is that they don't start with stupid punctuations, so really what you should have entered was something like "wine archicad" (after navigating to the directory where archicad exists).

I hope I don't come off as too rude, but I can't tell what you're trying to say because of all of the typos. I have no idea what "pedoff" is supposed to be. You'll get better answers if your spelling, punctuation, and grammar are accurate. I don't like to point this out to people, because often non-English speakers are simply doing their best. But I'm guessing you're not just a non-English speaker because of the nature of your mistakes.

Because of your typos, I'm not confident about what exactly it was you typed in. Without knowing exactly what you typed in, it's hard to be certain what was wrong with it.

Many people on this board won't bother replying to your post because of the typos, because they don't feel like wasting their time trying to figure out what you're saying, and because they don't feel that it's worth their time helping you out if it's not worth your time to at least type coherently.

Dear Isaac Kuo

Believe me your post keeps me smile (and that very seldom lately)

Yes you absolutely right, I do type fast and never look at what im typing, because Im very busy, do many things in the same time.

Thank you for your comments, will try to do my best.

So when will be at home will try to run in terminal your tips. wine –archicad

The archicad and autocad location are in windows!

The question is how to install them in FC6 for that I have to put the cd in, the type “yum install archicad while wine is running?

what I need is How to do step by step PLEAS

Will try to not bother you again

Cheers and stay safe

Hello anasmich,

With respect, I am posting here only with the hope of helping you understand what has been said to you so far.

That is not what IsaacKuo said to you. Please read again his comments about the dashes that you insist on using in the wine commands.

My dear sir! Please forget about that idea.

This is what you should be doing, and it was the very first reply in your thread.



Next, I should warn you to brace for disappointment even if you manage to install your software in the Wine environment. ArchiCAD and AutoCAD are rather sophisticated graphics applications. I have never gotten a complex software application to work to my satisfaction in Wine. I do use Wine, but for only very simple applications. You can look at what others have experienced with ArchiCAD and AutoCAD in Wine in the Wine Application Database. It appears to me that you may have better luck with AutoCAD (depending on your version) than with ArchiCAD.

Finally, did you know that there are various Linux CAD applications? Maybe you can find some Linux CAD apps to do the work that you have been doing in Windows with ArchiCAD and AutoCAD. If you are interested in that, start searching the Internet with Google.

Good luck with whatever you decide to do.

Did you try to install the program in wine? The way you do it is by running the setup program (as has already been suggested three times). I'm guessing you don't actually know how to install software in Windows, other than inserting the install disc and hopefully Windows is set up to autorun inserted discs.

The way you install Windows software is typically to insert the CD, and run a program called "install.exe" that's on the disc. To do this in wine, you insert and mount the CD (do you know how to do this?). Then, you cd to the disc's mount point and type in "wine install.exe".

Did you do what I suggested and configure wine?

And for goodness sakes, do NOT type in "--" in front of "archicad"! Don't do it! Where in the world did you get the idea to do that at all?

I repeat, I'm telling you: Do NOT type in "--"!!!!!!

In case you didn't get the message, here it is again:

Do NOT type in "--"!

Forget about dashes and how to do that !!!
My believes that this forum found to help new people AND swap the experiences between the members because people have different interests and point of view.

I really can install programs in windows, because windows are more friendly

I have asked many times in this forum and other forum tips for new users. Because I have now time to search in google HOW to, but now will find time

Regard the autocad I don’t use it I just check the drawing which I receive by email for approve only.
And all my questions just to confirm, or just be sure can I remove windows for ever? Because till date I don’t understand the philosophy of linux, may be I don’t understand because where I work now is to far and nobody heard about linux, all those week when I start downloading Linux ubuntu redhat linux xp and finally fedora6, was trying to spread how linux is great in my place in my work, but have no evidence that.

Any way thank for reply & stay safe
