Apologies for what is probably a silly question !
If one installs a Windows program in Linux with Wine which requires things like Winetricks to install some Windows stuff, is the whole installation within the .Wine folder ?
I assume that when installing Windows programs (Including anything else that is necessary, eg. from Winetricks) then everything is indeed within .Wine with no changes at all outside this folder unless, possibly, wineprefix is used. Am I correct ?
In this case, if a copy of .Wine is made before installation of this new program, then replacing the new .Wine with the copy will remove all
traces of the program from the system ?
