Unhappy Wine trouble: wrong version of win32s?

Hey, i just found a game at that i think is a lot of fun. Anyway, i didn't want to have to boot into windows all the time to play it so i tried to get it running with wine. Wine is set up reasonably well on my machine, and runs most small apps like this one. But for some reason, whenever i try to run this, it gives me an error message (displayed in a windows dialog box, though) that i have the wrong version of Win32s installed, and that i need Win32s version 1.15 to run it. I looked through the wine documentation, and it says that w32skrnl.dll, the win32s dll, will never work natively and i have to use the builtin one. Where do i go from here? (play that game and you'll understand why i want it on linux so badly ). Thanks for any help.

Have you tried using WineX instead of Wine?

Hey, i just got it fixed. Apparently, when i left the automatic version detection up to wine itself, it chose windows 95 to emulate, which was too old for this program. I just manually set it to emulate winxp, and now it works fine.
