I would advise following this guide to installing bioedit: http://www.wine-reviews.net/application ... -wine.html

Debian Xfce 64-bit, Xubuntu 14.10 64-bit, Xubuntu 14.04 64-bit, Antergos Xfce 64-bit, PCLinuxOS LXDE 64-bit

Since the guide is 5 years old, there have been changes. MDAC is now version 2.8 SP1 from http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download ... px?id=5793. According to winehq.org, MDAC 2.8 SP1 works properly with LM 13, but there is no reports of it working yet with LM14.

I hope the new version still works in WINE, I didn't find any newer guides. Bioedit is now version 7.1.5 from the original posters, here: http://www.mbio.ncsu.edu/BioEdit/bioedit.html and has not been tested or reported to winehq.org since 7.1.3 and Ubuntu Oneiric 11.10.

If it is a wine application, then it exits under /home/.wine
--or you can simply search for the file name with your file manager or locate in a terminal, it will find the hidden (.wine folder) and the location of that file name
Code: Select all
locate bioedit
--if that is the correct filename being used by the program


You may also want to consider a wine front end which may make managing wine installed applications easier

some wine info worth checking..

Running the APP..Bioedit, perhaps you need the full path (location)
