Wine provides an interpretation environment for some Unix platforms where Windows applications can be executed. It provides a mapping between the Unix file system and a virtual Windows file system used by the Windows programs. For the file name conversion to work, Wine must be installed and properly configured on the build platform, and the winepath application must be in the build platform’s PATH. In addition, on 32bit GNU/Linux it is usually helpful if the binfmt extension is enabled.
