    Using Wine program.exe doesnt work. I've tried using the command thru the shell and run command. Nothig works. Notepad is in the emulaters menu along with 6 or 7 others, thats why they work. Do I have to mnt or share something or what? I know I'm missing something but what.

    When you say it doesn't work, can you be a little more specific?
    Like when jvx told you to run "wine program.exe" what happened? What was the error message?
