Description Ali Akcaagac 2012-09-24 07:50:21 EDT

Running F17 with latest updates.

Wine 1.5.x offers a wrong installation path after a couple of Wine releases. Usually one expects that the to be installed windows programms offer a program location somewhere in "C:\Program Files" but since a couple of versions Wine defaults to "C:\drive_c\users\<somerandomname>\".... (Filled out of my mind). Could there be the possibility, that some configuration script messed up when creating the rpm packages ? Or is there a reason why it now defaults there ? I tested it with plenty of applications and they all behave this way now.
