Re: Wine for AMD64 system
Also, understand that SOME Windows .exe files are not executables, but rather, self-extracting archives. If you're trying to run such files, they may not work even after installing Wine.
Also, BEFORE you install Wine, do yourself a favor and go to the WineHQ website and look through the Application Compatibility Database tool they have. Look up the individual Windows apps and versions you want to use. You will be able to tell by their ratings (Garbage -- to -- Platinum) how well they work with Wine.
IF your apps are rated Garbage, or not listed, then installing Wine is going to be a waste of your time.
Ubuntu 12.10, 12.04; MS Win7.
