Winex Help


Whenever I try to run a program in Winex I always get this exact message:
Quote:
wine: lstat /home/shadowmetis/.wine/wineserver-hvc.rr.com/socket : No such file or directory

If it helps, hvc.rr.com is my host. Also, I had Wine installed before and I uninstalled it to install Winex. Could that be the source of the error?

Can someone check their $HOME/.wine/wineserver<???> directory and see if they have a file called .socket?
