Its $5.00 USD/month for a minimum of 3 months = $15. You could get the non packaged winex for free from here

read the information and download and compile it.

Good luck

Thats not the full version. It does not include the DirectX API that is really the main reason to get WineX. I wouldnt waste your time with the CVS version.

I don't think that's true. This is from their website.

The live CVS Tree for TransGaming's WineX (minus copy protection related code and texture compression, for now) is available through VA Linux's SourceForge website.

I use the CVS tree and I have had some success. I've never had anything "work out of the box" but with a little work I can get most games to work fairly well. All the games I install detect DirectX 8.0. As far as the copy protection it's just as easy to get a hacked .exe as getting it to work in the first place.
