I was feeling a little maverick tonight, so I decide to install Python 3 XP release with wine, so I can use Python 3 for personal coding while the system use Python 2 (linux release) for itself.
So I download the .MSI windows 32b files, open a terminal and start to launch the install with wine.
I tried many things but each time the install failed -even before having really started in fact- with this error message :
wine: Bad EXE format for C:\Temp\python-3.1.2.msi
I was running out of idea, when by accident I double click the msi file while using my file manager (PCMAN file since I use LXDE).
And them I was stunned to see a windows pop up asking me where I wanted you install python 3 !
Ok, so I figured out that when I installed wine, it set itself to open MSI files.
Very well, but in this case, why I got the 'bad EXE format' error when I tried to open the file from a terminal ?
Anyone has an idea ?
