I would like to use 1 windows program in pardus. What is the best/easiest way to do this? The program is not a game doesnt need anything fancy i dont think.

What do I do, I looked at the pardus wiki and there were instructions for qemu and vmware but they looked complex, what is the easiest way?

Hello,

with Wine you can use Windows programs in Pardus or all other Linux Distris. Install the Wine-packages from the repo and then you can use Windows programs.  Wink

Code:
pisi it wine

then download your wished windows app and install it by double-clicking on it - if some libraries are needed which wine dont handle right now visit their forum

If Wine doesn't handle your windows program, consider installing Windows in Virtualbox, it is available in the repository and it is easy to use.

Use Package Menager (PISI) search for WINE program, install it. After installing, search for Windows program .exe file and right click -> open with -> wine.. it will start to install like on windows.
