I downloaded the Python 2.7 MSI installer for Windows and proceeded to install it with Wine. It worked without any problems.
wine python.exe leads to a whole bunch of these errors:
fixme:msvcrt:MSVCRT__sopen : pmode 0x81b6 ignored
The application technically works, but is very hard to use because of these error messages. (They come up multiple times while the program is running.)
Is there a way to tell Wine to ignore these messages?
