	You can run "wineserver -k" to close (kill) all WINE processes in current 
WINE prefix.

	What you really should do is to report a bug at http://bugs.winehq.org about 
inability to install TradeStation. Don't forget to state its version. If logs 
or backtraces are needed you will be asked to provide them. As starting point 
just attach to your bug report (do not paste) *full* terminal output when 
running the installer.
	Make sure to run "wineserver -k" and cd to the directory with the installer 
before running it.

	Well, quite high if you report a bug *and* some developers find enough free 
time to fix it.
	A little off-topic; personally I use MetaTrader 4 and I can say that Linux is 
much more reliable platform for trading than any version of Windows... So if 
bugs related to TradeStation will be fixed you will be able to enjoy grate 
experience of trading on Linux.

	Thank you for using WINE.
