Wine cannot execute files due to default Ubuntu security settings
Wine cannot execute files due to default Ubuntu security settings. It might not be considered a bug, but this new 'feature' might make a lot of new Ubuntu users doubt that it can run Windows software, or consider it 'buggy'.
This is what I get when I try to execute an .exe from my internal NTFS hard-drive:
"The file '/media/Storage HD/Program Kits/Digital Janitor Setup.msi' is not marked as executable. If this was downloaded or copied from an untrusted source, it may be dangerous to run. For more details, read about the executable bit."
