Hi, I am running Ubuntu 11.04. I had no internet so I connected the ethernet cable to the modem on my other PC. Thus, getting internet connection, I installed Wine. I was able to open .exe files on Wine yesterday but after I took off the ethernet cable, no internet connection anymore, I couldn't run any .exe files on Wine.

Before disconnecting the internet, though, I was able to run Rainmeter. It worked but after the internet disconnection, it just would run anymore. It was the same with all my other .exe files.

It kept giving me the error

Title: Program Error
Description At The Top: The program winemenubuilder.exe has encountered a serious problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
Description At Bottom: This can be caused by a problem in the program or a deficiency in Wine. You may want to check http://appdb.winehq.org for tips about running this application.

If this problem is not present under Windows and has not been reported yet, you can report it at http://bugs.winehq.orgAlso, every time I click to open Wine, it shows a white box and a smaller rectangle that is also white. It seems to be frozen there, as it won't load anymore. I can right-click on the .exe file and choose to open it in Wine, it goes to the installation of the .exe file but when you click 'Finish' of the .exe file installation wizard, it shows the code above.

Is it that I have to be connected to the internet to be able to use Wine?

Wine does not require an Internet connection to work,i think your troubles are unrelated to the Internet connection and related to the fact that wine is buggy and doesn't always work.I find it is better to find Linux alternatives than to run wine.

The programs I've been trying to run are Rainmeter, Windows down-loadable games, and ObjectDock. The version of Wine I am using is Wine 1.3.26



Try running the exe file with wine from terminal and post the output here .... that may help clarify the error .

In terminal, I typed

wine '/home/shikiti/RAINmet/Rainmeter.exe'I get these results

It seems as though your installation of Wine may have been corrupted. Have you tried removing it completely and reinstalling?

As an aside, have you considered trying the program "conky" which is available in the software center? It provides all the functionality that Rainmeter apparently provides, but runs natively on Linux.
