Does the program appear in:

Code: Select all

wine wmic process get name
How do you start the programs?

I do not think taskmgr.exe will list WINE itself, since it is being run "inside" WINE. If you want to check if WINE is running or not, probably it is a better idea to check something else, like "winedevice.exe" process or some other way.

yes, the program does show up in this command, however other wine apps still cannot see it.

sorry for poor wording, i meant an app running inside wine, not wine itself.

So why do the apps need to see other? What are the apps?
