sarge: wine: w98 program installed: now how do I execute it

Postby craig_debian » 2006-02-28 21:41

In installed wine; wine x11; wine docs but I can not get it to show me that it's works or not

I installed a windows program
#wine Azzinstall.exe

which installed it in \Program File\AZZ\Cardfile.exe

wine created a hidden directory .wine
where it created
fake_windows

under fake_windows you find the typical Windows 98 folders

I can not come up with the syntax need to execute "Carfile.exe"

Set up a launcher for: wine "\Program Files\AZZ\Cardfile.exe"
or
from a xterm: wine ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/AZZ/Cardfile.exe

wine ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/AZZ/Cardfile.exe


isn't finding he cardfile.exe

Launcher: I installed it now to figure out what it is and what it does so I can tr;y your suggestion

thanks for the suggestions

I figured out launcher...however I still seem to have trouble with the wine syntax

Do I use the linux file location or this windows location with wine?

I suspect some forrm of window path name...

Do I use "/" or "//" or "\\"

At what level does the windows directory structure take effect?

What about spaces in the names of directories and files? No special consideration?

thank you

edit 19:30

/.wine/fake_windows/Program Files/AZZ Cardfile/AZZ Cardfile.exe

is the location
from a command line what should the sytax be ?

Got something
wine "C:\\Program Files\\AZZ Cardfile\\AZZ Cardfile.exe"

This was a testing version that's suppose to allow me to try out the program....however its hanging asking for the registration.... I've got this on my xp box... maybe I can copy it over to this box

Bummer.... I got it to load... accept my registration but it couldn't load my existing address azz book.. It created a new book... but the text was too small. When I went to enlarge the font it failed
