    assuming you have wine installed, answer "wine" when asked what program to
    open the file with. how to set file associations permanently depends on
    which desktop environment you are using, i.e., gnome, kde, or something
    else. you also don't mention which version of openSUSE you're running, or
    of wine.

    Hi roug,

    You cannot run windows files on a lonux system. You need an emulator to do it and that is what phannisvara suggested. You have different alternatives to run windows games in linux and I would suggest installing PlayOnLinux. It's the best thing to use to get the job done fairly easy. It will use the wine emulator.

    Some info here : Home - PlayOnLinux - Run your Windows applications on Linux easily!
