Creating a WINEPREFIX requires Wine. To install Wine on CrunchBang 11/Debian 7 (Wheezy), I’d refer to one of my previous posts here.
First, I had made the directory, ~/wineprefix, in which I intended to hold the WINEPREFIX, via Terminal:
Next, I created the WINEPREFIX in the desired location and named it .test:
env WINEPREFIX=~/wineprefix/.test winecfg
To launch windows application within the new WINEPREFIX:
env WINEPREFIX=~/wineprefix/.test wine iview_setup.exe
To reveal the newly created WINEPREFIX in file manager, I’d navigate to /home/username/wineprefix and press Ctrl+H.
