Help with WINE needed

vbimport

#1

i downloaded the source files.

i followed the steps :

./configure

make depend

make

./tools/wineinstall

asked a few questions. all done. no erros.

logged in as a general user.

$wine

no errors. i get the help screen.

but when i try to run any windows application i get following error :

Warning: L"/mnt/win_c/windows/notepad.exe" not accessible from a configured DOS
drive
Warning: L"/mnt/win_c/windows/notepad.exe" not accessible from a configured DOS
drive
wine: cannot find ‘/mnt/win_c/windows/notepad.exe’

the path is correct. i have double checked it.

while running the wineinstall script, it is necessary for a windows installtion be present on the system ?? cant it work as standalone ?


#2

i tried it once with c: mounted as /mnt/win_c

wineinstall script asked that it found a windows installion present. do iw ant to run wine configured to this or as standalone.

i selected standalone.

and other time i tried without any windows partition mounted.

i asked me that windows was not found on the system. do u want to configure wine as standalone.

i accepted it.

is this the right way ??

ps : i cant remmber the exact wording of the question it asked.
