problem with wine trying to run KindleFor Pc - fedora 12

I first use the wine configuration utility to tell it I am win98

When I install Kindle
wine KindleForPc-installer.exe
it runs to completion - a window appears as it intiilixzes some things
then it returns to the command line prompt
shortly afterwards I get a series of error messages that start
fixme:system:SetProcessDPIAware stub!
folowed by errle:CoGetClassObject class ... not registered
no class server could be created for context 0x17
and Kindle does not show up in the configuration utility and when I try to run it from the command line ot complains that some classes are not registered


any suggestions?

I dont understand why everything wants to be Win98, Kindles didn't exist in 98, probably wouldn't run right in REAL Win98.. Oh well

Anywayz.....Use Calibre

snatale1 - People use win98 because the posts on the web that tell you how to install KindleForPc tell you to use win98. I imagine calibre is what you want/need, however Kindle is what I need. Thank you for your suggestion.

Returning to Kindle
the class message that I represented by ... is
class {6e4feb12-510a-4d40-9304-1da10ae9147c} not registered

Anyone understand how I supply wine with this class - or otherwise how to deal with wine?

Thanks - Dick
