Hmm... I am a bit puzzled here. I regularly run commands exactly as he
has stated, with no problems at all. And that includes Forte Agent
(assuming that is the "agent" being run).
If the directory that agent is started from is not in the wine config,
then there will be problems with fagent storing all the dat, idx, and
ini files that it uses to keep track of your news reading status,
because agent wants to keep those in the current directory. My
preferred method is to put an entry in the wine config file for my
home directory, and then in the home directory create another
directory (I created a directory "fagent") where you want agent to
store all those files. Then I go into my fagent directory, and
wine /c/Agent/agent &
And it works fine for me. This is with a current CVS and all builtin
DLLs except crtdll and msvcrt. So what would cause the problems he his
