How to find files from windows.

I installed wine so that i could test a few games/apps. The installed path for the game i installed was c:\ where could i find the place it was installed on the hard drive?

i only have 3 parittions

hda1 = boot
hda2 = linux
hda3 = linux swap

if i try to install another windows app when i look at the selected drive linux is x: and windows is c: with all of the apps/games i have installed.

any ideas?

the fake hard disk is somewhere in ~/.wine/
check this dir / it's subdirectories

the c drive in under .wine in you home directory so type this in a terminal

cd ~/.wine/c/

~ represents you current home directory. From here it is just like the C drive with directories like

Program files
My documents
etc etc

And a tip if you are not familiar with the terminal, pressing the TAB key will complete the file or direcftory or anything in the $PATH. If there are two matches you can press the TAB key twice and it will show you the matches. For example

cd Pro

and then pressing TAB will give me

cd Program\ Files\

if there was a directory named Prognoff in the current directory as well pressing

cd P

then TAB would give

Program Files

then you just have to make them different in some way, the smallest amount of course will save your typing so

cd Progr

then TAB

will complete the Program Files directory
