    Thank you for this great article. I have followed it and have managed to install wine-1.7.18. My question is how to go about installing windows programs. I cannot see a desktop shortcut.On the terminal I am able to run the command `wine64`. As an example,I have an software liveusb-creator-3.12.0-setup.exe that I want to install using wine64. When I try wine63 liveusb-creator-3.12.0-setup.exe on the commandline, nothing seems to happen; no error,nothing!

    Please help
