Dear Community:

I have installed Lotus SmartSuite Millennium Edition 9.8 and its 6.1 update via Boxedwine Win32-18R2 without any problems. However, I can't figure out how to run the executables which are under C:\Portable Utilities\Boxedwine-Win32-18R2\fs\home\username\.wine\drive_c\lotus (for example: C:\Portable Utilities\Boxedwine-Win32-18R2\fs\home\username\.wine\drive_c\lotus\123\123w.exe). I have tried:

BoxedWine.exe -fullscreen -root fs -zip -w home/username/.wine/drive_c/lotus/123 /bin/wine 123w

but this only produces:

C:\Portable Utilities\Boxedwine-Win32-18R2
λ BoxedWine.exe -fullscreen -root fs -zip -w home/username/.wine/drive_c/lotus/123 /bin/wine 123w
Starting ...
Using root directory: fs
Launching /bin/wine
Warning: could not find DOS drive for current working directory 'home/username/.wine/drive_c/lotus/123', starting in the Windows directory.
wine: cannot find L"C:\\windows\\system32\\winemenubuilder.exe"
err:wineboot:ProcessRunKeys Error running cmd L"C:\\windows\\system32\\winemenubuilder.exe -a -r" (2)
wine: cannot find L"C:\\windows\\system32\\123w.exe"

C:\Portable Utilities\Boxedwine-Win32-18R2

I have also tried other variations I could think of without success. If anyone could tell me how to get this working, I'd be very appreciative.

I believe the working directory needs to be a full path that starts with /


BoxedWine.exe -fullscreen -root fs -zip -w home/username/.wine/drive_c/lotus/123 /bin/wine 123w


would need to be changed to

BoxedWine.exe -fullscreen -root fs -zip -w /home/username/.wine/drive_c/lotus/123 /bin/wine 123w
