Application could not be started, or no application associated with the specified file.
ShellExecuteEx failed: File not found.

This erroe keeps appearing and I don't know what I can do about it. What should I do?

Is there a space between epicinstaller and 10.18.8.msi?
Then you have to use quotation marks or a backslash:

Code: Select all

wine start "epicinstaller 10.18.8.msi"
# or
wine start epicinstaller\ 10.18.8.msi
You can also try:

Code: Select all

wine msiexec /i "epicinstaller 10.18.8.msi"

Thank you for replying! Yes, there was a space between epicinstaller and 10.18.8.msi. I've tried these commands but it just says this:
:~$ wine start epicinstaller\ 10.18.8.msi
Application could not be started, or no application associated with the specified file.
ShellExecuteEx failed: File not found.
