Moreover, when I now select "Open with other Application" from the context menu for a Windows app, Wine is not in the list. The Uninstaller isn't working either: when I select "Uninstall Wine Software", I get an error window saying "Could not launch menu item - failed to execute child process "uninstaller" (No such file or directory)".
