> Is it possible to run more than 1 version of wineserver concurrently?
You can run more than one instance from a given version of Wine - set
the WINEPREFIX accordingly. (CrossOver has good support for this,
calling it "bottles.").
WINEPREFIX=/home/user/.wine2 wine application.exe
I suppose you could run different versions of Wine if you needed to by
a similar process, e.g.
WINEPREFIX=/home/user/.wine101 /usr/bin/wine app1.exe
WINEPREFIX=/home/user/.wine1130 ~/wine/wine app2.exe
- though I haven't tried it myself.
Remember that there is no security as such between different
WINEPREFIXes - any binary running with Wine can do anything that Unix
user can do - but it does help keep things from inadvertently stomping
all over each other.
