Additional Comments

These DLLs must be installed: $ winetricks msxml3 gdiplus riched20 riched30 vcrun6 vcrun2005 Since wine in Ubuntu 12.04 is too old, I got the new version from the PPA ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa.

I'm running latest version of Wine 1.3 actually am running the beta. However, i get the Program to open, yet as soon as someone sends a picture to one of the many discussions i am in. I crash. Any ideas, I am by no means a programmer, I just have had it through the roof with Windows O.S.

It is said to "NOT leave the mouse indicator focusing on the blank for entering password.",you should "move your mouse to the soft-keyboard logo as soon as possible" and "then move your mouse away as quickly as possible to other area and fill the other things."
In fact,you needn't so hurry like that.You also needn't to tick 'auto login'.You can sign-in more than an account at a time.
What you only to do is press "TAB" as quickly as you can when the main window is appearing.:-)
I think is easy than move my mouse.When the focus doesn't on the blank for entering password,you can choose which account you want to sign-in or status.
But you have to tick "Remember my password" unless you are very boring.:-)
PS:My English is very bad.If you want to laugh……you can laugh as loudly as you can.:-)
