Wine can't find paths in Mandriva 2005 LE


I installed 7-Zip in wine, and it runs fine when I issue the command:
wine /home/myuser/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/7-Zip/7zFM.exe

However, the "normal" ways of running wine programs don't work. Each of the commands below comes back with the error message "Error: nosuchdir '/Program Files/7-Zip'":
wine "C:/Program Files/7-Zip/7zFM.exe"
wine /Program\ Files/7-Zip/7zFM.exe
wine -- "C:/Program Files/7-Zip/7zFM.exe" (this was the shortcut the installer put in my wine start menu)

I know the program is installed at the correct path; see ls output:
[myuser@mycomputer ~]$ ls .wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/7-Zip/7zFM.exe
.wine/drive_c/Program Files/7-Zip/7zFM.exe*

Any ideas? Thanks so much!

Assuming your windows drive is mounted as /mnt/windows, try:

wine "/mnt/windows/Program Files/7-Zip/7zFM.exe"

Thanks. There's no Windows drive to mount--it's an all-Linux installation, and I actually ran the 7-Zip installer program with wine.

I know very little of wine, but you could create a simbolic link to that Program\ Files directory in a suitable location.

check out "man ln" and use the option -s
