Since I can't read Spanish (I guess) and since you tagged wine, then probably you didn't follow the correct procedures to install wine from PPA.

I'd like Wine to run in my real C: drive, so Revo Uninstaller can detect my programs inside my C: Drive, so I can remove AVG and not get BSOD's anymore.

Instead Wine uses ...

Wine by default runs programs as admin within itself, but wine can even be broken by trying to run it as root. Never run it as root. To tell if it is "rooted" just see what command you use to launch it. If it includes "sudo" or "gksudo" or even "kdesudo" you are running it as root. Wine is subject to viruses in the same way a non admin windows account can ...

This ultimately depends on your own computing habits. If you constantly download free screensavers and mouse pointers, you'll probably find a WINE-compatible virus in no time. However, if you stick to malware-free programs, you're pretty much safe. The best way to ensure that no malware is installed is by exclusively using Free Software or Open Source ...

Wine Is Not an Emulator. It is simply an implementation of the Windows system libraries for Ubuntu. There is no faster way to run a .exe on Ubuntu than Wine. If you want to have a shared codebase, you will want to compile it on Ubuntu. Depending on the language you are using and the system calls that are being made, this will either be very easy or a lot of ...

For starters you need a valid shebang. Your second file almost has one but the !# are the wrong way around. Second up you need a valid interpreter! None of my systems have a /usr/bin/bash, it's just /bin/bash. You could even just use /bin/sh. It's ever-so-slightly lighter. The following should work: #!/bin/sh wine /home/aiao/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files\ ...

the file handles 1 and 2 (stdout & stderr) may be closed by wine, because it doesn't use them and may even free up 0 (stdin) once it has established a keyboard handler. Also this would be more fair to windows as all file handles are available as it kind of expects in a new program-instance.

First of all: You're using Wine which in this case may need to recreate something that mimics the runtime environment of a Windows command shell (cmd.exe). As you have not told what drive_c/Program\ Files\ \(x86\)/LINE/Line.exe is, there is no way to tell its requirements. Now : ambiguous redirect1: 1 looks as a possible output from either Wine or cmd.exe. ...

In the first file you can redirect the output just using > /dev/null or &> /dev/null that will redirect stdout and stderr so no need for 2>&1. In the second file, I believe the correct interpreter is #!/bin/bash.

Wine has been updated but also you can use it with PlayOnLinux which abstracts better IMHO and has pre-configurations.

Now there's an another app for downloading, which is meant for ubuntu, and you can download it for free from it's official site in .deb; the link ...

You still may still be able to change the Windows version using winetricks: winetricks winxp This should set the Wine version back to Windows XP - it may not work if wine doesn't work.
