If you are trying to use a real windows partition from wine then it should be whereever it is mounted at:

Ie on mine it would Z:/mnt/windows if I have it mounted there in fstab.

Basically through Z drive you should be able to access whole system

It sounds like you are trying to use the REAL windows drive programs.

You can't. Or rather you shouldn't. You have to reinstall each program on your FAKE wine windows drive. That way if there is a terrible error (which can happen) the only thing destroyed is wine. Writing real registry entries on an active windows partition could be disastrous, so wine does everything it can to prevent that.

Now, saying that, I do occasionally run a program or two that lives only on the REAL windows drive. Small, well written programs that are cross platform. If it had a real installer, I don't run it is my general rule.

If you still cant get Wine to work, you might consider using QEMU or perhaps VMWare. That way you can run any windows program exept for games and things like that.

Hi all,

Yeah the specific app's I was hoping to use in WINE still won't go if I even try to use the latest SUSE which has the wine in there already. I figured I'd try that out and slax too, but no luck. Most likely it's the app's I want to use have the issues.

Yeah I was trying to see if Wine could use a partition loaded up with windows 98...I'm quad boot so i tried that route..only to find Wine doesnt work that way anymore.

It has nothing to do with WINE, but how you are using it. You must reinstall each app into WINE first... you can't use the partitions version. If you are up to it, you can redirect whichever software to use the data on the Windows partition, which is what I do... Windows drops files everywhere, and makes plenty of reg entries... this is why you need to reinstall the software so WINE is aware of all of that... and so you don't mess up your WIN partition.

That is truly one of my biggest problems. I can't get anything to install on wine. Nothing. Let alone run anything.

If wine causes to much grief with an app surrender and boot up windows. No shame in it imo.
However sometimes I get stubborn and don't follow my own advice.

I feel your pain regarding linux documentation. How difficult is it to place a date to a document? Last time updated would also be nice to know.

Money 98 & wine

Hi. I've been having trouble running Money 98 with wine. This seems like the right thread to ask for some help. I have followed mostly all the advice in it, except for downloading winetools. I have twiched wine as far as my knowledge lets me. I'm running Debian Sarge and wine 0.9.12. After trying to run MSMONEY.EXE, I get the following debug info:

According to the Wine database, Money 98 doesn't work so well. Check out the versions that do here:

Apparently, Money 2003 works great.

Thanks for the answers people. About Money, I have given up on wine - for the moment - to run Money. I had visited the appdb for wine, and I have a 97 version of Money I could install... However, I chose to move to gnucash, and after a while, it seems to be working fine and it looks like it can offer everything I need from a money tracking program.

About the smileys, I never noticed they had formed when I pasted the console dump in my message. However, smileys for console are a good idea.

About wine, it works great with other programs, less dependant on Windows.

Thanks again,
