Using WINE to run Windows applications

From Applications > Add/Remove > type 'WINE' in search box. On the list Tick 'Wine Windows Emulator' then 'OK' to install.

To run an applications, copy the Windows application to the desktop. Then go to Applications > Accessories > Terminal

Then type in 'wine '. For example 'wine Desktop/setup.exe'.

If it looks for a .dll, you can download it from dlldump.com and copy it to the application folder before running wine.

Applications run so far:
ABC123 (kid's game)

Still trying:
MYOB - during installation it's looking for IE 5.5 (duh)
Cisco VTII Camera - still trying to 'make' a development driver
