Wine installing inf


I have an old game controller I want to install. It's only compatible with windows 98. I don't have it any more so I was wondering if I could install it on wine? It comes with a game and a driver software which acts as an interface to map the keys to key presses on the keyboard

Wine and Drivers

Did you try running it in Wine, I've found that it's generally hit and miss. Usually if the driver or program doesn't rely on too many external libraries you should be fine, but the only way to tell is try.
