Can't install Windows program using Wine; Wine can't read DLLs
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 14, 2013
I am trying to install Age of Empires III on Ubuntu 12.10 with "wine1.4 1.4.1-0ubuntu1 ". When I get to the product key part and enter my valid product key, it gives me a message that's header said "Invalid CD key!", but the rest of it says "Error loading the PID Generator DLL. The DLL could not be found! Please make sure the file is available in the installation directory and try again," (Note that the comma is a part of the message, and that is where it ends). I was able to locate said DLL, but when I tried to open it, I found out that Ubuntu can't open DLLs, not even with Wine. This is probably because just the DLLs themselves aren't meant to be open separate anyway. Is Wine just having a problem loading the DLL for some reason? What's wrong? I need very specific steps to fix it, as I am a Ubuntu n00b. I have Q4Wine installed and see options like "override DLL" that might help if I knew how to use them. Help Please!

Where does WINE install Windows programs
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 6, 2008
Hi Wine sippers -
I am running Windows XP as my C drive and Ubuntu 8.04.
If I install a program that I have in XP will WINE overwrite it or does it install to somewhere in the UBUNTU directories? I don't want to upset my Windows programs before I know they will work in WINE.
Just one more glass, please!
How do I uninstall Ubuntu and install Windows 7?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 15, 2014
Im moving back to Windows, and maybe ill dual boot with Ubuntu afterwards. Anyway, I have that .iso file sitting in my documents. My laptop doesn't have a disc drive, which is really unconvenient for a laptop that said in the description, "Runs on ubuntu, can easily install Windows". So im going to need to either find a way to install it on a flash drive or do it without using anything. I am limited to this computer only, so I can't use another computer to install the .iso file on the USB or anything. Im going to need to do it here. So, help?

I have Ubuntu 14 LTS on my Sony Vaio right now. I've just started my PhD program and will need Windows, I've bought Windows and downloaded it to my USB, but I can't get it to boot. I've gone into the BIOS and switched the preferences to external drive, but it keeps going to some ubuntu page (GRUB I think). Anyone have any ideas?
Ubuntu Wine Install on Flash Drive?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 22, 2014
I recently installed Linux Ubuntu on my Acer C720 Chromebook and it runs really good. However since the internal SSD is only 16GB and I have Chromeos and Ubuntu installed on the SSD plus programs for Chromeos, I have very limited space on the internal left. I want to install some Windows based programs since I need them for college work and I was wondering if it would be possible to install Wine and Windows programs on a Flash Drive (32GB)?. Or would it be better to get an SD card and use the internal SD card slot to install programs onto?
Should/Can Wine install a Windows Java program?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 6, 2012
So I'm still working on making the switch. I'm now using the latest Ubuntu with Unity.
I'd like to install this old PHP-IDE that I use on Windows. Call me old fashioned, but this program works the way I like to work so I'd like to take it along with me into Linux land as well.
The program we are talking about is Zend Development Environment 5.2.0 . This program requires the JRE so is this a simple case of just installing the JRE into my Wine environment and then installing the Program? I've tried to install Zend Development Environment and it didn't work. What happens is the install Wizard appears but as soon as click NEXT it doesn't redraw the window and it halts.
Any tips in the right direction would be awesome as I can't leave Windows if I can't install this program.

Installing a Windows program in Ubuntu using Wine
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 27, 2009
I installed Wine no problem. Then I downloaded a Windows Chess program(ECTool) to the desktop. I right clicked on the ECTool icon and checked run with Wine. The program came up just fine and I could make moves on the chessboard, but no information was saved. I got a blank screen under games in progress.
Anyone use this program or have any ideas what to do next? ECTool is listed as a program that works with Wine.
