I just got a new computer and installed 64bit Ubuntu for the first time.

Things were going well but I cannot run any exe files (32bit).

All I get is a little loading circle then nothing.

Here is the errors given by terminal.

wine: virtual memory exhausted

I know the apps / games im using work in wine as I installed them on 32bit no problem.

Any suggestions ?

Are you trying to run them using wine or wine64 (there's a difference between them)? –  Wolfer Jan 28 '13 at 18:48
