    What .exe file are you trying to install?

    What did you type when you tried to install it?

    What was the error message that wine told you when it failed?

    • Auto Wiki Browser
    • I did not type anything, I right clicked on .exe file and chose the option open with Wine
    • There is not any error message, no window opened or nothing happened after that!

    That won't work, you need to follow the instructions here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikiped.../Mono_and_Wine

    Yes, already tried that: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikiped...ot_install_AWB

    Talking about Wine, where shall I run this command?
    Code:
     sh winetricks dotnet20 gdiplus

    You would type that at a shell prompt in a terminal window.

    All Greek to me. Can you give some details please! Shall I type it directly after opening terminal?
    When I did so, I got message in terminal Can't open Wintricks

    You typed it wrong, left out an 'e'.

    Also make sure you are in the right directory where winetricks was downloaded to... you can type 'ls' to see what files are there.

    I see you guys working on this. I thought I would pop in really quick and say, Hey maybe you can install this in PlayOnLinux instead. Have you checked to see if it is available through PlayOnLinux? They have a pretty huge list of software that will install. What is the software you are trying to install anyways?

    Try PlayOnLinux to install and run windows apps (it is down the list):

    I use it for Windows software in Wine all the time. Works great.
