    using old win partition apps


    I'm a noob, especially to wine. I've got a Debian/win dual boot system. I've got ntfs-3g installed, and wine. I wanted to know if there was a way to run my win apps from linux. Do I have to re-install every program that I want to use in wine? If I do have to re-install programs into wine, can I copy some of the apps I have on my win partition to the wine directory, or must I install everything from scratch?

    If anybody has any links on this matter I'd really apreciate it. Thanks in advance!!

    You have to install them all manually I think. However, I may be wrong. Ask the guys on Wine's IRC Channel:
