Running Windows software in linux

I need to run a couple of programs wich i have in windows. Photoshop 7,0 Flash MX and Dreamweaver MX.
Ive tryed Wine but it dosnt work because of those programs need DLL and Regkey.
Im too cheap to buy WineX so im asking is there any free program i can use?

Instructions for running those programs under WINE are here:

WineX is primarily for games which use DirectX, Wine or Crossover Office (which costs) ae your best bet.

Not that I know of; there's Vmware and Win4Lin but they both cost money.

You could use gimp instead of photoshop and a good html editor (like bluefish) instead of dreamweaver. Dunno about flash.

Thumbs up blender for flash

to add what you can use instead of flash:
blender3D !

check it out! it's free and there is a manual.
you can check at if certain software runs with wine and how.

good luck!
