i tried to download dcom95 and i got this error
wine: Could not load graphics driver 'x11drv'

linux:/home/RJ # WINEDLLOVERRIDES="ole32=n" wine dcom95.exe
Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: Invalid MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 key
wine: Could not load graphics driver 'x11drv'.
Make sure that your X server is running and that $DISPLAY is set correctly.
linux:/home/RJ # WINEDLLOVERRIDES="ole32,oleaut32,rpcrt4=n" wine setup.exe.
wine: cannot find 'setup.exe.'

Run dcom95 under wine as user, not root.
The wine C drive is installed under your user's directory, thus you don't need root permissions.
