I have a bunch of older games, and I've been testing them out in wine. Command and Conquer Gold and Star Trek Armada II both work great, but when I try to install KKnD (its a really cheesey game) I get this error:

name@computer:~$ wine /media/cdrom0/install.exe
Warning: unprotecting memory to allow real-mode calls.
NULL pointer accesses will no longer be caught.


After that, it does nothing. Any ideas?

Have you checked the wine app database?

Yay well now that I know Armada 2 works, I can try & get my brother onto linux. He loves that game.

The WINE app database says that KKnD should work, but gives no help on getting it to work that I could find.

Did you try the latest version of wine?

Yes, I followed the steps on the WINE website to add the repositories and install the newest version of WINE.
