Programmers intend for error messages to contain information that can
help in debugging.  Could you please have the courtesy to quote the
error message when you ask us what the Hell we mean by it?

An up to date Wine wouldn't hurt any either.  IIRC the messages have
been changed a few times since 20000909 in the hope to make them clearer
and more informative.

wine --version
Wine version 20020122

A Wine config file doesn't mean anything by itself, only in relation to
the *NIX system it describes for Wine to use.
