Running Windows Programs Under Linux

lionaneesh's Avatar author of Running Windows Programs Under Linux
This is an article on Running Windows Programs Under Linux in Linux.
In this tutorial of mine i am demonstrating how to Run windows programs in linux ....

In my case i am using Ubuntu 10.10 with Kernel 2.6

I am using Wine [http://www.winehq.org/] to demonstrate my article..
Wine is a program that provides the windows API for running the windows programs …

Installing



Code:
sudo apt-get wine
For more information visit http://www.winehq.org/download/

Running files



After installing you should restart your system...
And most probably you will get a Designer/Attractive icon on all your exe's …

For running any program
Enter 'wine' followed by the Absolute Filename

Code:
Syntax :- 
wine filename
eg:-
wine '/home/aneesh/Desktop/app2win.exe'

Running a File installed in C:// Drive(virtual)



You can also run files already installed in your C:// drive
eg :-

Code:
wine cmd
Note : All the C:// files are stored in a directory ~/.wine
This is my output :-
Code:
aneesh@aneesh-laptop:~/.wine$ cd ~/.wine/

aneesh@aneesh-laptop:~/.wine$ ls

dosdevices  drive_c  system.reg  userdef.reg  user.reg

Running IDA FREE :-
Code:
aneesh@aneesh-laptop:~/.wine$ cd drive_c/

aneesh@aneesh-laptop:~/.wine/drive_c$ ls

Program Files  users  windows

aneesh@aneesh-laptop:~/.wine/drive_c$ cd Program\ Files/

aneesh@aneesh-laptop:~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files$ ls

AVS4YOU  Common Files  IDA Free  Internet Explorer  Windows Media Player

aneesh@aneesh-laptop:~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files$ cd IDA\ Free/

aneesh@aneesh-laptop:~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/IDA Free$ ls

cfg              ida.hlp  license.txt  sig           vcl60.bpl

dbghelp.dll      ida.int  loaders      symsrv.dll    vclx60.bpl

idafreeware.pdf  ida.wll  plugins      til           wingraph32.exe

idag.exe         idc      procs        unins000.dat

idahelp.chm      ids      rtl60.bpl    unins000.exe

aneesh@aneesh-laptop:~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/IDA Free$ wine idag.exe 



Thank you for using IDA. Have a nice day!
Running IE :-

Code:
aneesh@aneesh-laptop:~$ cd /home/aneesh/.wine/

aneesh@aneesh-laptop:~/.wine$ ls

dosdevices  drive_c  system.reg  userdef.reg  user.reg

aneesh@aneesh-laptop:~/.wine$ cd d

dosdevices/ drive_c/    

aneesh@aneesh-laptop:~/.wine$ cd drive_c/

bash: cd: I: No such file or directory

aneesh@aneesh-laptop:~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files$ cd Internet\ Explorer/

aneesh@aneesh-laptop:~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Internet Explorer$ ls
