I do not know if this question is appropriate here; so

DefaultInstall 128 wine.inf

appears every time and did not appeard on Mdk10.0
(although there does not seems to be essential

If it is not possible to make it works, anyone has an
idea on how to do the things by hands? If you need
more informations about my system configuration,
please let me know (I have no idea what is


P.S. Please excuse if this message apperas twice; I
