Repeating Error Message.

Post by J_Hart03 » Thu Jan 24, 2013 10:18 pm

I am brand new to Linux. I just switched to Mint 14 Cinnoman from Micrsoft 7. I have Wine 1.4.1

I am having trouble with Configure Wine. Everytime I try opening it i get the error message "The Program winecfg.exe has encountered a serious problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvienence." I completly removed Wine and reinstalled it but that did not do anything to solve the problem. I have searched around and have not found a solution. I am thinking about just reinstalling Linux Mint over again but that is a last resort. Can anyone here help me with this problem?? Thanks!

Delete the wineprefix:

Code: Select all

rm -rf ~/.wine
then run winecfg again. If you still have problems, post terminal output.

If you didn't get any messages from rm -rf ~/.wine, then it did delete the wineprefix.

Now run winecfg.
