winecfg - Wine Configuration Editor


winecfg [options]


winecfg is the Wine configuration editor. It allows you to change several settings, such as DLL load order (native versus builtin), enable a virtual desktop, setup disk drives, and change the Wine audio driver, among others. Many of these settings can be made on a per application basis, for example, preferring native riched20.dll for wordpad.exe, but not for notepad.exe.

If no option is given launch the graphical version of winecfg.


-v [version], /v [version]

Set global Windows version to version and exit. If version is not specified, display the current global Windows version and exit.

-?, /?

Display help, valid versions for version and exit.
