I downloaded and installed BYOND with WINE but when I try to open it it sais on the panel Starting Byond then just closes.No windows pop up or anything.

I'm new to Linux so I have no idea what to do.

Thanks.
Can you post the output of this?
<code>wine --version</code>
In response to Flame Sage (#1)
wine-1.1.40

Do you still have the byond icon in your system tray?

If so, this sounds exactly like the behavior I've had when trying to use byond via Wine for a while now. I can't say I've put any effort into fixing it though, as I have a virtual machine with XP installed on it.

I've tried getting a virtual machine I don't remember which one but I have no idea how to use it. :(

Oh well I guess I may never be able to play BYOND.

Using VirtualBox is really easy to set up. You will need a copy of Windows in order to install it in a VM though.

Oh okay unfortunately I can't afford windows xp.

But I do have a Windows XP re-installation disk is that the installation disk and can it install Windows xp?

Another thing is I have a whitebox computer so I was wondering if it would let me install it.
Okay so now for some reason every time I try to open anything with wine I get a Program Error that sais:

The program (Programhere).exe has encountered a serious problem and needs to close.We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Then below that it sais:

This can be caused by a problem in the program or a deficiency in Wine.You may want to check http://appdb.winehq.org for tips about running this application.

If this problem is not present under Windows and has not been reported yet, you can report it at http://bugs.winehq.org.

I don't know why this is happening and it just started recently and it's happened with a bunch of programs.

Also when I try to install BYOND it sais:

Wine Program Crash
Internal errors - invalid parameters recieved.

:(.

Have you tried reinstalling Wine or upgrading it to version 1.1.41?

When I type in sudo apt-get install wine it says:

for@for-desktop:~$ sudo apt-get install wine
[sudo] password for for:

wine is already the newest version.
The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:

python-ogg libbulletml0d2 ttf-uralic libfltk1.1 chromium-bsu-data

Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 4 not upgraded.

So I think I have the latest version.

I've been wanting to reinstall it but I don't know how to uninstall it.
In response to Crime fighter109 (#9)
Looks like you have the latest version alright.
It's 1.1.42 now.

I've been wanting to reinstall it but I don't know how to uninstall it.

$ sudo aptitude reinstall wine

Using aptitude here because it has a reinstall function.
