View Full Version : WINE question
February 12th, 2006, 04:00 PM
Ok, I have just download WINE and installed it perfectly. No how do I get programs to install with it? Like for example just for the heck of it I tried to download IE 6 and then I tried to install it with WINE. Well it says I can't because I don't have an internet connection. What's wrong? And when things do download when do they go? thanks for your help.

First you need to run
either from a terminal or by pressing Alt+F2
Once you run winecfg, and used it to setup options, you can install a program using wine and the location of the program executable (.exe)
For example, running a setup program from the CD-ROM
obviously it would be different depending on the program.

IE6 when you download it it is like 600KB. It then downloads and installs the rest when you open it...
And I think someone has a howto to get IE in wine. (Aysiu maybe? Poofy maybe? I think it was someone with alot of posts, but I dont remember)
