I'm new to wine and am trying to get some of the kid's (3 and 8) old win95
games up and running for them to avoid having to find space for yet aother
box in the house. Matchbox Emergency Rescue got going ok, but a sesame street
one doesn't want to get beyond the splashscreen menu.
The Mattel one installs and runs from the hd and uses data on the cdrom, while
the sesame street one runs from the cdrom with nothing on the hd apart from
an icon. I'm wondering if this is the problem with the app as it tries to
open 'street.scr' on the cdrom but fails. The permissions on both cdroms are
r-xr-xr-x and should be ok even though they belong to root. Is there a way to
get around this sort of situation. I'm loath to try putting the whole thing
on the hd as this will eat up space like nobody's business as it holds small
movies, etc and if I do it for one, then ... well you know the rest. 'Dad,
why can't I get this one to run too...'
Any ideas greatly appreciated.
