Winex installation problems

I have just installed Winex 3.2.1-1 onto my Fedora box. I have installed Space Colony with no problems, the game runs faster than it did under XP. The problem arose from trying to install another game, setup failed due to the wrong version of directx so I have installed directx 9 again with no problems, but now I cannot install the game all I get is a default error box saying "A previous installation has pending work requiring a reboot. You need to restart your computer to complete that installation. Setup will now close." Obviously rebooting my system won't fix the problem. I know wine has the wineboot switch to fix this type of error but what is the winex switch ?

You don't install the directx API while using WineX,...

WineX runs it's own emulation of directx.

Delete your .transgaming sub-directory and start over.
