I am able to run the Watchtower CD and view contents for my study that way.
Although it is installed on my hard drive and reads OK in Gnome it does not read from the hard drive in XFCE.
I have tried to reinstall it again in wine but XFCE is not having it.
As i can run and read the contents of the CD this way i am happy to continue.
I have been using Mint for about a year and am not missing windows at all.
The community on here are great and its Guys like you with superior knowledge that makes it all worth it.
Thanks again for all your help.
Have a great weekend.
