Hello,

i am having wine 3.19
4.18 Linux Debian kernel

running Linux i connected my Windows 7 system partition where i have installed in "Program Files" folder an windows 64bit version of qBittorrent (https://github.com/qbittorrent/qBittorrent/) torrent client.

And i launched its .exe and it apparently works to run under Linux.

The qbt has its configuration files here:
/home/YOURUSERNAME/.wine/drive_c/users/YOURUSERNAME/Application Data/qBittorrent/
/home/YOURUSERNAME/.wine/drive_c/users/YOURUSERNAME/Local Settings/Application Data/qBittorrent/

I am used to update qbittorrent using .exe windows installer downloaded from https://www.qbittorrent.org/download.php which detect installed qbt and offer upgrade.

Now my question is how to properly update Windows app like qbittorrent being on Linux.

I do not like running qbt over Wine, but qbt till this day [failed to create transferable configuration files or an user friendly way to migrate the configuration between Windows and Linux](https://github.com/qbittorrent/qBittorrent/issues/9912).

Running from a Windows partition is not supported. You need to install the app in Wine. https://wiki.winehq.org/FAQ#I_have_lots ... in_Wine.3F
