Question Help with Wine

I need help with wine, I've installed it and everything, but the problem is putting in the real dll's I have a valid xp installation on another hard rive but i haven't the slightest clue on how to make wine use the dll's I know wine uses its own dll's but since i have real ones i would like to use my one. Some programs run on wine, but others dont run at all and that is the problem that i am having.

Hi,

I don't know if wine will work with dll's from and xp installation. Can you tell me what programs aren't working for you, and I can try and come up with something to help you?

Cheers!

Hi,

Can you tell me what version of Office you are trying to run?

The simple answer is no. WINE stands for Wine Is Not an Emulator. ndiswrapper is more of an emulator in that it takes the windows drivers and wraps them around the linux kernel so that it will run them. I can help you with it but I would like you to start a new thread so that people don't get confused.

Cheers!
