I've downloaded WINE as well (not sure if that's needed)
Yes, you need to install Wine if you want to run a windows program in Linux. Unless it is really a pure .NET program, which you could run with Mono.
Mount your "C: drive" (usually this is already mounted as your save file is typically saved here), navigate to the location where it is installed (e.g. /mnt/home/Program Files (x86/....), open a terminal, and try running `wine *.exe`.
But most large programs won't work like that - you need to run their installers with wine.
but I have a 64-bit with Windows 7 so it won't work
Really? Have you tried running it in compatibility mode? _________________ If you have or know of a good gtkdialog application, please post a link here
