Summary: files don't find eachother or the cd-drive
AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
ReportedBy: mabusa at online.no
when i emulate a windows application in WINE i constantly encounter the
following two problems:
1. I start programs using wine and they can't find any files that aren't in the
same folder (can't find those in subfolders either) and crashes because it can't
find what it needs to start. This happens to most programs This completely
breaks most of the games/programs i try to wine. I am not sure if this is
because the programs can't physically find them or if wine doesn't emulate
filepaths properly so the programs are confused.
2. Wine is unable to make the program think the location of your cd-drive is
(let's say) e:\ so that it will find the cd you've got in it. Or it doesn't name
the cd's properly so the program flags the cd as the incorrect one before even
looking at it. this is INSANELY annoying when trying to run games that have the
very annoying spyware named "copy-protection".
