how to use regedit under wine


Hello everyone

Im attempting to get the Perfect World game to run under wine.
The instructions for installing say to use regedit to edit the wine windows registry to add
some entries.

http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManage...&bShowAll=true

I dont know where to use the regedit command in wine?
the thread does not explain this part.
I have looked under the wine config menu and did not find anything.

Im running Ubuntu 10.04 and wine 1.2

thanks in advance for your help

Vanessa

I just got this to work.

Open a terminal window.

Change directory to $HOME/.wine//drive_c/windows

Run regedit as follows:
Code:
./regedit.exe
The registry editor window will appear.
