So I'm gonna WINE about this too, while I'm at it.
I have a game that my friend sent me. Back when I was using Windows 7. I installed that game, and it worked fine. I managed to transfer that game over to linux, and get WINE. It's the exact same game, exact same files. I install the game, I run setup, but when I try to run the game itself, I get "This program has encountered a serious error and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience."
