My suggestion did what it was meant to do - let you see why the program
wouldn't run. This is usual - run a program by clicking an icon and any
error messages it spits out are lost. You have to run it in a terminal
to see those.

Bottom line: learn enough about the command line to run programs in a
terminal session. This way, the first time you run a new program under
Wine you can do it from a terminal session and see immediately what
problems it has.


PS: Mono is an open source .NET implementation for Linux.
