    Try the following command:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install win32
    Also, make sure you have mplayer and mplayer-plugin:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install mplayer
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install mplayer-plugin
    Note that you will need to ensure that your multiverse repos are active.

    You can also do the above installs with Synaptic.
