How do I get programs to install using WINE. When I download them the program it get's opened with WINE but then it the program gets aborted because I don't have Windows XP or greater? Can someone help me please? Oh and Mery Christmas.

Merry Xmas to you too, dude(ss).

Well, I don't know about "greater" but you can have Wine emulate Windows XP by entering "winecfg" in the terminal, and on the "windows" drop-down list, you can choose Windows XP.
I'm not sure the application works well though, cause it sounds like a new one.
Well, your mileage may vary.
Be sure to download the newest version from Here (http://wine.sourceforge.net/apt/breezy/), and not the one from the repositories, it's too old.
