    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/
    
    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 I
    
    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
    
    iexplore.exe
          
    
    aneesh@aneesh-laptop:~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Internet Explorer$ wine iexplore.exe
