I tried using a sym link and a hard link to drive_c/windows/system32/cmd.exe, and both don't work. I can't call the cmd.exe using "wine command.com"...it just prints out : 


matth at PCmatthieu:~/.wine/drive_c/windows$ wine COMMAND.COM 
wine: could not load L"C:\\windows\\COMMAND.COM": Module introuvable

And so this same error message appears when I run the setup.exe file for Rosetta Stone.

I guess that's because it's not an .exe and wine checks for extensions before running it?

As for any HOWTO about it, I couldn't find any, since people at the wine AppDB either managed to install it without any problem, or can't install it at all...
