hi, everyone, I'm running wine4.0-stable on Ubuntu 14.04 and encountered the following error when I run winecfg in the terminal.

0025:err:shell:SHGetFolderPathAndSubDirW failed to create directory L "C:\\users\\root\\\684c\9762"

I cannot link the folder to other folders.

What should I do to correct this?

This directory is only created if you run Wine as root or with the sudo command.
Read the Wiki for more information:

Or rename the .wine folder in your home directory and try again.

Thank you!
I changed the user and this error disappears.
