Hi again!

Ignore my former question. I have managed it by creating a symlink under dosdevices to the mounted directory.

Thanks once again!

Can anyone give me an example that shows how to change the winecfg file in order to assign a drive?

Thanks Charles and Gert for your replies!
I have mounted permanently the windows shared directory on my Linux machine.
Now I just need to assign it a drive in winecfg. Wonder how to do it...?

The real problem is that you passed a UNC path to it, which Wine doesn't
understand... yet.

What you have to do right now is mount the share somewhere on your host
OS's file system, then assign it a drive in winecfg. Then you'll have to
modify your run.bat file to refer to the drive.
