Thanks. I know I need to install visual runtime, and I'm not sure if visual studios is another name for it. I installed 7zip successfully. However, I can't find vcrun2005 under the install apps wineprefix. I looked under the default wineprefix and 7zip wineprefix, and if you select install windows DDL or component, it appears there. However, when you select it and hit ok, you're just sent back to the wineprefix's window, and nothing else happens. I also tried to install visual runtime from Microsoft.com a few times too, but it always encountered an error. By accident, I ended up deleting the runtime files each time before I tried to uninstall them, and now whenever I go to uninstall wine software and I try to uninstall them, an error occurs. Will this affect me installing runtime successfully? If so, how do I solve this? Thanks for the help, and sorry for the nooby questions.
