Hello everybody!

Started to install wine today and I have to say - Great work. Nevertheless
I ran into some problems while trying to install Bruker Topspin 3.1 (Scientific NMR Analysis Tool). But unfortunately I cannot install it. I have seen that there is a topic about an old Topspin version but it didn't help me. As I am starting to get familiar with wine the chance is great that the problem might be minor and easy to fix.

I am running wine 1.3.31 under Arch Linux.

When trying to install the software the following error occurs:

Starting "Z:\home\markus\install-topspin-3.1.tmp~\windows\tcl-8.5.9\bin\tclsh85.exe" "Z:\home\markus\install-topspin-3.1.tmp~\xwinstall.d\swim\lib\xwinstall.tcl" -s topspin -s nmrsim -s flexlm -s nmrguide

My first assumption was that it could be connected to environment variables not set correctly but as I am completely new to this subject I am a little bit lost what to do now.

I know that the software is available for Linux but is only developed for
Red Hat Linux and it seems not to be that simple to get it working on Arch Linux.

I am thankful for ideas!

Thank you!
