Hi there, I'm new to using wine and am currently having some issues installing my first dos game using linux mint.

I will probably use dosbox to play it but need wine for its windows installer.

If you must know the game is Chex Quest. It's a game about intergalactic cereal. (Chex cereal)

The problem that i have encountered is although the installer opens and works fine, there are video files in .smk format that are used in the game.

The when I get done selecting all the stuff like where I want to install it to an error message comes up saying "file_name_here could not be opened"

I'm a bit confused. What do I need to do in order to sucessfully install this game.
