at the end of the emerge for wine a message is displayed about running regapi setValue < /etc/wine/winedefault.reg.
when i do this it tells me "cannot find 'setValue' has anyone elser encountered this?

when i try to install office i get errors about "unable to delete key" and what look like registry addresses, and i beleive it has something to do with this.

heres somemore info:
office gives the error :
"Error 1404. Could not delete key
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Classes\Interface\{00... (lotsa digits mostly 0's)...00046}. Verify that you have sufficient access to that key, or contact your support personel." (that's you guys :) )

in the terminal i see:

fixme:reg:RegGetKeySecurity (988,7,0x413d5888,1024): stub

any help would be much appreciated becaue after all office is the only reason i even use windows anymore and id like to drop the partitioon. thanks in advance

Well, Office is trying to modify HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, which (under Windows) only Administrator can do, as it affects the whole system. I think this is stored in /etc somewhere, so you'll need to be root to modify HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, which means you need to install Office as root.

Or are you...?

err:win:WIN_FindWndPtr window 10041 belongs to other process
err:win:WIN_FindWndPtr window 10041 belongs to other process

is refering to the fact the app connot modifiy wine's sysreg????

getting the exact same error running neverwinter nights (yes I know linux binaries are on there way but I couldnt wait :) )installed native com* and direct sound dll's and so far have managed to get through the movie trailer (although not quit 100% to look at ) but this error keeps coming up and firing up the debugger......
