           Summary: wine config [wine] "Path" not working ?
           Product: Wine
           Version: 20040716
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: blocker
          Priority: P2
         Component: wine-binary
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org

MY WORLD------>

System Linux Redhat 9 ( fully up to date kernel gcc/libs etc )
wine from CVS version -- Wine 20040716
New config file from distribution
No old software lurking this is a new clean Linux instalation
Wine installed with no Windows partition ie stand alone


I have used older versions of wine for some time with few problems. I am now
trying to use the latest from CVS ( aug 2004 ). It compiles and installs. Indeed
notepad etc run no problem.
I used wineinstall as a normal user and su'd for the installation.
I have confirmed that wine is using my ~/.wine/config file by corrupting it and
seeing errors ( as expected ). The problem starts when I try to add Path's to
the "Path" entry in Section [wine]. Here is a snip from the file --->

"Windows" = "c:\\windows"
"System" = "c:\\windows\\system"
"Temp" = "e:\\"
"Profile" = "c:\\windows\\Profiles\\Administrator"
"GraphicsDriver" = "x11drv"
"ShowDirSymlinks" = "1"
;"ShowDotFiles" = "1"


All directories are define in dosdevices with soft links as recomended and all
are accessable.

I am attempting to Lotus organizer the command line is

$ wine org5.exe
The result is
wine: cannot find 'org5.exe'

If i use the full path list ie:

wine c:\\lotus\\organize\\org5.exe

Then it starts... however I need to add some other Paths for the program to
work. If I add them to the config file they are ignored.

This is not peculiar to organizer any program on its own path will fail.

I have tried exporting WINEPATH no help
Of course I have left the linux enviroment Path alone

I have googled, searched wine HQ read all the README I can find including the
sgml stuff and find no real refferance to this. So either its a new bug or I am
thick. I dont mind being called thick etc if someone knows the answer

Thanks in Advance
