    couldn't load wine HELP


    Im on ubuntu and I tried installing wine after it downloaded I typed wine and this popped up

    Usage: wine PROGRAM [ARGUMENTS...] Run the specified program
    wine --help Display this help and exit
    wine --version Output version information and exit

    so I typed wine PROGRAM and it seemed like it loaded but at the end it said

    wine: could not load L"c:\\windows\\system32\\PROGRAM.exe": Module not found

    WHAT DID I DO WRONG?

    You misunderstood the error message, that's all. When it said "wine PROGRAM" it didn't mean that you should literally type those words, only that you should give wine the name of the program you want it to run. For example, to run notepad, type "wine notepad". As it is, wine thought you wanted to run a program called PROGRAM and then complained that it couldn't find an executable file with that name.
