What happens when you run it from a terminal? http://wiki.winehq.org/FAQ#head-3b297df ... b8edc21619

What software is it?

Is there a trial version available for download?

hi guys, thanks for replying but since the topic needs to be looked at, i couldn't wait at all, new job and all, so installed xp.

but for those interested, it was a script that's meant to load a log in page, there is no trial version or anything.

if run from terminal it would show some messages (forgot what exactly) i know it's not enough to go by but if you want i can do it again, if you think it might help someone else in the future.

i don't know much about scripts and stuff which is why i'm here, i don't even know if the attachment worked, i got a strike for it :/ but i'm now dual booting from now on...
