Problem Starting applications in WINE.

I installed WINE from a source file...

Ran notpade and it works =)

When I run anything else, like a setup.exe from a CD, WINE pops up in the taskbar, with a spinning hour glass, then disapears and nothing happens.

Any Ideas, is it installed right?!

Try running it in a terminal/command-line, so you can see the error messages.
