These sub-programs are usually accessible by running:

  • wine wineprogram arg1 arg2 ...

at the shell. For example:

  • wine winecfg

For Wine 1.1.15 and before, executable wrappers were provided for some of these programs, but as this messed up out-of-tree builds, the wrappers were removed from Wine 1.1.16. These wrappers allowed you to type just:

  • winecfg

at the shell (as long as Wine is installed in the user's $PATH).

A complete list of these programs can be found in Wine's source, under programs/.

These tools are a collection of scripts and executables to aid development of Wine. They are invoked as a standalone command while in the tools directory (e.g. ~/wine-git/tools/wineinstall).

A complete list of these commands can be found in the source at wine-<version>/tools/
