When I tried to run some programs, all part of a series of projects, I keep getting errors like fixme:advapi:ReportEventW

Now, finding help on specific errors such as that has proved difficult in the past, so I'm hoping to just find out what fixme means, if I can learn more about the error itself, all the better, but any info would be greatly appreciated.

Surprisingly, the Wine Wiki has no info on fixme at all...

The "fixme" errors are just developer notes about incomplete or unimplemented functions in Wine. As an end user, there almost nothing you can do to to fix them in most cases (depending on the error, sometimes replacing a DLL with a Windows native one could fix it).

Thanks.
That was what I was afraid of...

Some of them are harmless though - including the one you're talking about.
