    Default Wineprefixcreate in newer versions of WINE

    I have not been using WINE for a while.

    The last time I used it i used wineprefixcreate to make different "drives" for the various applications/games I installed so eventuel ekstra dll files etc. did'nt got mixed together.

    E.g.: wineprefixcreate --prefix "/home/xxxx/TotalCommander/"

    To install I used WINEPREFIX=/home/xxxx/TotalCommander wine setup.exe

    When I try to do this with the recent versions of WINE I am tolded by the program that it is not necessary anymore and that the program will figure it out.

    I have great confidence in the WINE team but I would still like to have the programs in different drives. It makes it a bit easier to clean up if a install goes wrong.

    I can't seem to find info in the documentation on how to do it. I am tolded to use wine.cfg but it has - as far I can see - not the function I need.

    Any suggestions?

    Thank you in advance.

    Hi
    Do you mean the program winecfg? Have a look at wineboot, this can
    update the prefix directory.
