    A MS-Windows program I use quite often is called " AutoStitch "

    To run this program, all I do is download it to : /home/oldcpu/windows/autostitch and uncompress it and then run it with:
    Code:
    wine autostitch.exe
    and thats all. You should see the autostitch program window appear.

    Some details: wine will then (if not done before) automatically create a directory called .wine and inside .wine will be a directory called 'dosdevices' (I believe for mappings) and 'drive_c'. There will also be files under .wine to contain the typical MS-windows registry settings for programs that set those. under 'drive_c' will be directories "Program Files", "users", "windows" ... stuff that MS-Windows users (of which I am not one) will understand far better than I. But all that is transparent.

    As noted, for a sample MS-Windows app (note "simple") one only need run
    Code:
    wine autostitch.exe
    For a more complex example, take a look at this how-to for installing Virtualdub with the deshaker pluggin under wine: HowTo install VirtualDub under wine with deshaker plugin - openSUSE Forums

    before you try a reinstall, try creating another user account, even if
    you reinstall openSUSE, it can use the old /home with all of the old config
    ..hidden files which may be the cause of any problems you are having with
    startup, and possibly with wine.
