It may be something that the program requires from Windows that WINE
can't provide. I've found a few that do pretty much the same thing your
talking about. It usually doesn't matter to much because I keep a
Windows machine for those things that I can't do in Linux.
WINE today does a _MUCH_ better job than it did just a couple years ago
so in time...........
Life is what happens while you're busy making other plans.
