Do NOT change the permissions of this file.  It will BREAK your ability to run Wine.  Also, this file is modified each time you run Wine.

Also DO NOT RUN WINE AS ROOT, unless you really, really need to.

That being said, what Operating System, Distribution and version are you using (i.e. Linux, Slackware 13)

If you are running Wine on a Mac using MacOSX, there is a lengthy thread in the forums on what you have to do.  The quickest method of fixing the problem is to switch your system to the Thai language.  If you use English as your primary language, Wine will select and use it.
