    windows program is using cvs and cannot log in

    I have work environment in my job which provides executable file. It uses cvs by cvs library of some sort. With executable file .dll file is provided (cvs.dll).

    Whenever I am trying to use that executable via wine I got message:
    CVS credentials for host "WORKHOST" were rejected".

    Credentials were provided for the program as in windows.

    I know that dll file is used, because if I remove it from current directory then there is a message displayed.

    I have WORKHOST defined in /etc/hosts file and even I created one in ~/.wine/c_direcotry/windows/system32/drivers/etc/hosts

    I do not know why this keeps happening and why I cannot use that executable via wine.

    Any ideas how to make program run under linux OS system?

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    Not all Windows applications work with Wine on Linux. You might be able to get it to work after a lot of futzing around, but my advice is to run Windows in a VM and run it as normal there.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
