I installed wine 1.2 and then went ahead and installed quickbooks 6 (yes umpteen years old version).

Then I installed a quickbooks update, which I need and at that point I got winevdm.exe errors. The update would not install.

I must have screwed up something royally, because cmd.exe, which worked before I did all this, stopped working and now, regardless of having uninstalled, purged, and manually deleted any remnants of wine and reinstalling (both from the repository and via terminal), cmd.exe doesn't work.

Also, now I don't have any wine shortcuts in the applications menu (I can add those manually, but strange things have definitely happened here).

This is with ubuntu 11.04 classic (I don't use Unity, if that's of any help).

Can someone please help?
