    Wine config and steam probs on freespire


    Hi all, I'm remotely new to freespire, and have been trying to get Wine to work. I downloaded Wine from CNR and installed it, ran it, etc. Upon start up it says 'You should configure Wine', everytime I click it wine just exits out. It appears to be running (kind of), because I managed to install Steam and update it, but everytime I try to run it, The sign in screen has only the text boxes but no labels. (I'll insert a screen shot shortly, I now regret posting this from my XP Pro PC). Thanks

    There are 3 things that is possible.....

    1. Wine is not runnable by itself, it runs with a Windows based program.
    OR

    2. You need to edit the "conf" file in wine, probably located in /etc, if Im right,
    or
    3. Wine isn't compatable with the computer you're using. You might want to install it the hard way.....(that is, manually build it)
