Well, with that there is progress. It is a bit late for me here though
(Argentina) and will have to study this out a bit more tomorrow.<br>
But two new things happened with that last suggestion you made. One is
that a "Wine" window came up, something that did not happen before, and
also the keyboard works. So I will have to play with things tomorrow to
see just where I am, but it is enouraging!!<br>
One interesting thing is that it takes a long time for the program to
load, and the Terminal window has a long line of the following:<br>
And then when it closes there are a list of lines like this:<br>
My uneducated impression is that it is saying that it lacks certain
fonts, and the solution would be to install a better font collection
that would satisfy the documents that I call up.<br>
Anyway, I will get back on this tomorrow.<br>

<pre wrap="">Thanks for taking this up.
Since the program is in the C: drive that Wine creates, I cannot access
it from Linux.
By definition if you cannot access it you cannot run programs from it. But
you of course can.
First, if you want to convert Windows path to UNIX path run something like
winepath "C:\Program Files\Corel\Ventura 10/Programs/ventura.exe"
And you will get the output (it may vary for your system but if you didn't
tweak WINEPREFIX environment variable it will be very similar to example
below; "~" means your home directory):
~/.wine/dosdevices/c:/Program Files/Corel/Ventura 10/Programs/ventura.exe
As you can see you always always can to cd to your virtual C:\ drive and do
whatever you want with its files or subdirectories.

Here is the result:

I I write, it comes out here.
So the keyboard works, but it works in the Terminal window. Don't know
if this will be of help to start off with.
Please read <a class="moz-txt-link-freetext" href="http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1798">http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1798</a> ; you probably want
to mention there that your program doesn't work out-of-the-box.
Here is few hints:
Try this (just copy/past these two lines to you X terminal):
cd "`winepath 'C:\Program Files\Corel\Ventura 10/Programs/'`"
wine explorer /desktop=Ventura_10,800x600 ventura.exe
...And see if it helps.
You can replace "Ventura_10" with any name you like (this is uniq ID for
virtual desktop). And of course you can adjust the resolution of your virtual
WINE desktop as necessary.
