it depends. you can specify it. By default, in wine, it's in $(HOME)/.wine/fake_windows but you can check in your configuration file where is the C drive, and then from there do a manual search. Oh, btw, switch to openoffice.org

but what exactly is that file ... i know i am not following you cause of the lack of information ... you say you installed office, and didn't know where it went, so my first question is, did you find where (the file?) is by the info supplied by ciccio ? if so, what is the file you are trying to open? and what are you doing to try and open it?

Okay, let me go back...I am trying to use Word from Office 2000 that i installed. I am sorry for my ignorance...I am just trying to create a shortcut for Word, Excel and Access. If i want to use this program, it does not create shortcuts on the desktop so that i can just click on that icon and execute the program, Word....

well i am just throwing this off the top of my head,but it should be fairly accurate, where you'll replace ${HOME} with your home directory....but the command will be something like

wine "${HOME}/.wine/c/Program\ Files/Microsoft\ Office/WINWORD.EXE"

and it'll depend on the graphical environment you are using, for me to tell you how to make the shortcut, but if you know how to make shortcuts in general, and when you find the exact command to use (like above) then you'll be able to make one. ..

no no d00d, get outta the pretty graphical frame of mind where everything is point and click ... we will take care of the shortcut at a later time, but first test out what i suggested in the previous post and fire up your terminal and see if you can at least get it to run . ..

ok i am not sure why you are not reading my post that i gave originally... i did two things in my command that will avoid that error you are getting
1) i put quotes around the location
2) i put back slashes ( \ ) in front of the spaces

so if you would have at least done one of the two things (but i included both in the command) you wouldn't see this error you are getting ... the main thing is putting the back slash in front of the space for example cd Program\ Files a
now again re-look at post #6 and try again ....
and since you are navigating to the root of MS words directory, the final command will be wine WINWORD.EXE ..
oh, and also remember to treat the Microsoft Office diretory the same as Program Files as it too includes a space ..

p.s. its not called dos its called bash

You MUST stop thinking windowsand start thinking linux. Once you getit to run, you can do more pro stuff like to create desktop icons or to automatically run wine when you double click the .exe file... but the problem is that you need to do it the other way first, or else you will never get it to work fine.

Please, do as DrOzz says, cd Program\ Files/

In bash you need to use escape codes for certain caracters, the blank space is one of them. The character is \ (backslash and space).

I think that you are not using a GUI.

you need to run wine from a graphical environment, such as gnome or kde.
