    Cool Program opened with wine but won't install


    There is a game online that I would like to play but it requires installation. I downloaded the executable file and changed the properties so that it is allowed to execute and Wine Windows Program Loader is now the default. A window opens that states the terms and I agree, hit next, and the loader installation window appears. But doesn't load. Thanks in advance for your help!

    You downloaded and put this game file in your /home/?user?/.wine/ directory?

    Post the results of this command run on the file: ls -l mygame.exe (whatever the name of the file, make sure you are in the directory in which you have the file)

    This is what I did and got:

    amber@jeremey-laptop:~/.wine$ ls
    d3dx9_27.dll drive_c system.reg user.reg
    dosdevices shaiya_us_downloader_20110225.exe userdef.reg wininet.dll

    amber@jeremey-laptop:~/.wine$ ls -l shaiya_us_downloader_20110225.exe
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 amber amber 170784 2011-05-24 20:14 shaiya_us_downloader_20110225.exe
