Question What version of wine am I using


How can I find out if I have the latest version of Wine?

If I uninstall WIne and then install a newer version, won't that harm the programs linked to wine?

You don't say what version/distro of Linux you're using, but you can either type in "wine --version", or "rpm -q wine", to see what's installed. Go to http://www.winehq.com, and see if the version is the latest.

And if you remove wine, then reinstall it, you're putting it back where it was originally...so essentially making no changes.

at the commandprompt type:
wine --version

You can just upgrade your version
