Problem opening iTunes download with Wine with Ubuntu

Hello All,
I've run into some problems while trying to install iTunes onto my system (Ubuntu 10.10) using Wine. I've installed Wine and configured everything properly, and then I download iTunes. I've tried downloading several versions, including 7.2 (older version) and the newest version (iTunes 10). However, when I try to open this downloaded file, I get the message:

Archive: /home/candyshop/Downloads/iTunesSetup.exe
End-of-central-directory signature not found. Either this file is not
a zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive. In the
latter case the central directory and zipfile comment will be found on
the last disk(s) of this archive.
zipinfo: cannot find zipfile directory in one of /home/candyshop/Downloads/iTunesSetup.exe or
/home/candyshop/Downloads/, and cannot find /home/candyshop/Downloads/iTunesSetup.exe.ZIP, period.

Can anyone tell me why I am running into this problem, and how to fix it? Thanks

Go into your Downloads folder. Right click the iTunesSetup.exe then select Properties. Go to the Permissions tab. Make sure you have a tick in the Execute section. Now select the Open With tab. Make sure Wine Windows Program Loader is selected then click close. Double or Single click the iTunesSetup.exe and it should now run.


itunes, ubuntu, wine
