    Hi,

    So my netbook is at it again and I'm almost convinced to say screw it and do arch instead.

    Whenever I try to open something with wine (Battle.net, steam, etc) it gives me the error "No windows program configured to open this file". It's a bloody EXE and I just updated wine to 1.7.22 in hopes that this issue would stop.

    HA THAT'S FUNNY.

    I have found little on this issue. There were a few forum posts that said this and apparently they figured it out but never posted the solution.

    Hmm, that is a Default program error from Windows.
    You know how you can double-click a file and it will automatically open in a program? That is the "default program" for the filetype.
    Not sure how to change the defaults in Wine.
    I'll do some googling

    Guess you need to give them a little more lovin ;)
    Maybe give them equal attention because they could be jealous of the other

    That doesn't help me much ;-;

    They each have their purposes. My arch laptop for hacking and gaming, and my netbook for Deus Ex, WoW, and school work.

    Sorry, couldn't help it

    I did some quick searching and you are right, there isn't a lot of solutions out there.
    I would try re-installing Wine and PlayOnLinux again.
    It's a strange error and I've never seen it before. Even after installing 100 games.

    Alright. I otherwise don't really know what to do. I'm hoping I don't need to do multiple system installs tonight ;-;

    Well I figured out what was wrong though I don't know what to do about it.

    My CFG's are gone ;-;

    The most I can do I guess is to move my games and completely delete the wine folder.

    This is the out that I had on deleting the folder and redoing the cfg.

    Code:
     gamebook@gpdSLM:~$ winecfg
    wine: created the configuration directory '/home/gamebook/.wine'
    fixme:ntdll:NtLockFile I/O completion on lock not implemented yet
    err:mscoree:LoadLibraryShim error reading registry key for installroot
    err:mscoree:LoadLibraryShim error reading registry key for installroot
    err:mscoree:LoadLibraryShim error reading registry key for installroot
    err:mscoree:LoadLibraryShim error reading registry key for installroot
    fixme:ntdll:NtLockFile I/O completion on lock not implemented yet
    fixme:iphlpapi:NotifyAddrChange (Handle 0x1cce880, overlapped 0x1cce88c): stub
    wine: configuration in '/home/gamebook/.wine' has been updated. 
    If this didn't work I'm purging the PPA's and redoing the wine block.

    Also if you do this in the future, to anyone, you will have to redo your DLL cfg, obviously.

    Update, in removing wine again, I got this line:

    Code:
    update-binfmts: warning: no executable /usr/bin/wine found, but continuing anyway as you request
    
    I'm going to reinstall when i have this down.

    Update again.

    In trying to remove the folder it never seemed to exist. Something really f'd somewhere.

    Code:
    gamebook@gpdSLM:~$ rm /usr/bin/wine
    rm: cannot remove ‘/usr/bin/wine’: No such file or directory

    OK so basic list of what was wrong that I'm not sure how to fix aside from just going and getting the debian binaries.

    1: CFG's are empty. They are there, but they are empty. I had 2 prefixes, one for vdj and one for default stuff. I deleted the vdj one and I assume it deleted the whole cfg instead of the block inside the cfg for vdj itself (virtual dj).

    2: Wine binary - GONE. The wine binary was completely deleted somewhere along the line, either in updates or in installing wine 1.7. Not sure how to fix this. The directory was also gone.

    3: WineCFG and Regedit are the only things that run. Not really sure what to say past that. May have to do with the bin being gone.

    I'm going to make a guide on this issue when I have time to and I know exactly what to do to fix it. I'm deleting all my wine crap and getting the binary right from the site.

    [SOLVED] Wine Binary Broken.

    The issue in total was the main binary for wine was gone. The cfg was also empty. All of them in fact. Though, the cfg copies stored in winecfg were still available. So in total, the copy of the CFG that was available wasn't being copied because the binary wasn't there to organize it.

    FIX: Go to site, install it from there OR install the binart fresh on your system.

    Wow, very strange. Do you remember how you installed wine in the first place? (to avoid this happening again of course)
    I've never had a problem like empty configs before.
    But then again I use PlayOnLinux instead of Wine.
    I have always installed Wine via software manager, then installed PlayOnLinux from their .deb file on the website.
