but, maybe I was unclear, It's the cd that is not being recognised, not just by wine but all of apps/kde panel widget etc.
The cd is fine I just installed it in vista. (it runs far too fast there, processor speed dependent.) I thought I'd try it as an easy small ap for my first wine go.
On a very similar vain I just managed to install casino verity, a propriatory blackjack game, simulator, which has many features for improving your game.
It did the same thing in linux it does on windows, claims there is no file MSCOMCTL.OCX in c:win/system or system32 / not registered. I found the file moved it in both places.
But now how do I register the file, it claims still not registered.
in windows I'd run "regsvr32 \windows\system32\MSCOMCTL.OCX"
but how do I do that in wine?
