Still no luck on command line parse

   I missed the beginning of the thread, but with wine 20011108 this
should really be working. The only thing I can think of is that there
was a bug so that if you were running "wine foo.exe a b c", then the
command line received by the program would actually contain "wine..."
instead of starting with "foo.exe..." like it should. This was fixed a
little bit after the other bugs (not sure if this was before or after
   One possible issue: as I suggested in bugzilla, what does the
following command return?
   file `which wine`
   Is is a script or and a regular executable?

   You say that you are using CodeWeavers Wine so I suspect that it is
in fact the winelauncher wrapper and this may be where the quotes get
lost and the parameters mangled. If so try running:

   wine.bin 'C:\Program Files\intuit\qbtimer\qbtimer.exe'

   You may need to set WINEPREFIX, PATH and LD_LIBRARY_PATH before. And
single quotes are better when you use '\'s.
