You should not be running Wine as root, and this could possibly be part 
of the problem.

You should get to a configuration that we can understand and work from. 
That means first of all stating what Linux version you are using, and 
what Wine version and where you got it.

Then you should, as an ordinary user (not root) completely delete your 
current ~/.wine directory, and the Wine C: drive if it is located 
somewhere other than within the ~/.wine. You should then execute "wine 
notepad" or just "notepad", assuming you are using a reasonably current 
Wine (which you should be doing). This will cause a new, fresh ~/.wine 
to be created along with a new Wine C: drive.

Now try installing and running Xara X. Post any messages printed out.
