Nexus, sorry I forgot something, sometimes it says "flosses" and sometimes it says "MyCrossStitchPatterns" at the end of the error message, as I told you above. It's the strangest thing I have ever seen, considering it's a PCStitch package, but it's like I stay in there!!
Thanks, Nancy

Nexus, as I said I keep getting the same error message. Sometimes with the word "flosses" and sometimes with "my cross stitch patterns". It's the strangest thing I have ever seen. Yes, even taking the defaults, it still pops the same error, over and over, it's like I am in there.HA! No, I have never gotten an install, because of the error message. I know I have Wine installed, because I can get through all the screens that Tim posted for me to look at on picasaweb. You may want to look at those. I am now thinking it may have something to do with the Linux or Ubuntu "tree", because it seems that my "tree" is in there in the path. I know it's crazy. I have spent so much time on Ubuntu and WineHQ. I have learned alot, but not how to fix this. Maybe we can help someone else, I hope!!. I typed in "MyDocuments" in the beginning of this learning process, but I have always taken the defaults since. It is my understanding that Linux does not recognize "MyDocuments" because it is a "Windows" thing. I have no "MyDocuments" everything I use that is downloaded is now in my "home" directory.

Thanks, Nancy

Bixie, follow these steps and hopefully at the end you will have PCStitch installed and working. Firstly the file you downloaded should be named PCStitch_Inst.exe. If it has any other name then go back to the site, select XP as the operating system and re-download the non-pro version.

1. Go to Places and open your home folder.

2. Click on View then click on Show Hidden Files.

3. Look for a folder named .wine right click it and select rename, call it anything you wish.

4. Find the PCStitch_Inst.exe file and double click it to start the install process. Accept the terms & conditions, leave the install path as it is, answer yes to a desktop icon and just click next until the install starts.

At the end of the process you should have a PCStitch icon on your desktop.

Check the program will run by double clicking the icon. Once everything is working, you can delete the renamed folder, go back to View and click Show Hidden Files to remove the tick.

Hi Nancy,

Sorry for the delay in response - went on holiday.

Could you screenshot your installation process for us to see, like I did for mine? It might give us some hints.

Tim.

Tim, I do not know how to do that, and I am not sure I remember. If you read the post by Nexus, the one about renaming a folder, that's what I had to do. I renamed a wine folder and then deleted it. Apparently it held the "My Documents", which was a Windows thing, and kept preventing me from the install. Once I renamed it, the install went smooth.

Thanks so much for all your help!!
Nancy
