Ubuntu 20.10: wine-6.2 with WOW64 and 32 or 64 bit program installations
When creating a 64 bit wine prefix it creates a directory structure with "Program Files (c86)".
I can launch 32-bit programs into it, but I always get prompts that tell's me it could go wrong because I use a 64-bit prefix. Although there is no apparent error.
At top of that, when I install a 32-bit program into this prefix, should I do it with wine, or wine64? If I do it with wine, will it use the "Program Files (x86)" or the default "Program Files" reserved for 64-bit programs on a 64-bit architecture?
It's not clear at all how to use a 64-bit architecture, with 32-bit applications/installations. The point is, some of the programs I want to install, have a 64-bit installer, but uses 32-bit launchers and are normaly installed into "Program Files (x86)".
My goal is to run a signel Prefix for all the apps I need wone for. This would mostly be used for game purposes.
How do I launch a prefix desktop WOW64, compatible for 32-bit and 64-bit apps as well?
What is the best way to install all I need into this only prefix, without this prompt about 64-bit prefix?
I have no choice to use other than a 64-bit. My prefix should be at HOME/user/wine64/
I've found out that I have to work with wine64 to run an exe within the x64 Prefix I've created. Even is this one is 32-bit Like the Steam setup for exemple.
'WINEARCH=win64 WINEPREFIX=/$HOME/.local/share/wineprefixes/Win64DXVK wine64 explorer'
I'm a newbie, but for me it's like winetricks runs some commands with wine instead of wine64, just because those are 32-bit applications. So my question at this points, if it's so, there a winetricks version that runs everything with wine64 instead of wine?
I'm looking how to work directly trough wine64, because winetricks give me these error prompts about WINEARCH 64.
WINEARCH=win64 WINEPREFIX=/$HOME/.local/share/wineprefixes/Win64 winetricks
When I'm working directly with the prefix, I've getting things to work somehow. But it would be easier for me if I could also use winetricks in full WOW64 environment.
