What specific Windows software do you need to use? Usually, you can
just click the .exe and see if it will install. If there is a problem
you can contact the developer of the software and ask if Wine is a
supported platform (just like they support other Windows
implementations, such as 2000, ME, and XP).
Please CC me if you want to be sure that I read your message. I do not
read all list mail.
