    Using Wine

    I need some help. I installed Wine, and I tried to install an executable file, and it doesn't see it as an executable, although I have gone in to the properties and and changed the permissions for it. The program is IrfanView. Does Ubuntu not support this program even with Wine?

    Re: Using Wine

    What version on irfanview are you trying to install?

    You might find some useful information here:

    http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManage...rsion&iId=7834

    You might need to download the MFC42.dll library to install as suggested at the wine appdb.

    You can find it here:

    http://download.microsoft.com/downlo...tsetup_enu.exe

    Hope it helps!

    Re: Using Wine

    What's the name of the .exe install file?

    Go to the folder that in which it is located in your terminal and type:

    Code:
    wine [name of file].exe
    Or you should be able to find the install file and right click and select 'Open with Wine Windows Program Loader'

    Hello, having the same sort of problem trying to run final fantasy 7 on wine. How exactly might I do that.
    Setup.exe is the file and I just clicked open with wine.

    the file /Downloads/Setup.exe' is not marked as executable. If this was downloaded or copied from an untrusted source, it may be dangerous to run. For more details, read about the executable bit.

    Right click the file icon and go to the permissions tab at the top. Check the box that says 'Allow executing file as a program'

    Try running it after doing that.

    Let me know what happens.
