Hey all.  I'm trying to install big fish games with Wine and I'm not sure how.  Can't find instructions.  I downloaded the bfginstaller and ran it with wine, but nothing seems to happen.  If I run it again, I get a message saying its installing, but I can't find it anywhere on my computer.  What's going on?  What do I need to do?

First off, you need to read all of the forum rules and stickies. They are the ones that say READ BEFORE POSTING.

Then, read the documentation for PlayOnLinux. PlayOnLinux and Wine are different, even though POL is a front end for wine.

Documentation:

http://appdb.winehq.org/

http://wiki.winehq.org/PlayOnLinux

So, yeah. You really need to do some reading, and post appropriately. When you created your account, you were asked if you agree to the terms of service and rules. If you read them, you would see that your post is useless in telling us what the problem is, and whether or not you are even installing it correctly. This is not windows, and you have to do certain things to get programs to work through wine/pol. Please read everything I linked, as well as ALL of the forum stickies and rules, and post the appropriate information. It sounds like you are not even running PlayOnLinux, so you should really be posting in the Wine forums, not here. We do not support Wine by itself. Simply PlayOnLinux. If you dont have that installed, you need to either install it, READ THE INSTRUCTIONS AND DOCS, and post correctly, or post in the wine forums.

RTFM. :) haha
