    Installing from optical media is like everything else in WINE, hit or miss, it very much depends on the game, the amount of DRM etc. In many cases you can mount the CD ROM/DVD and double click on "setup.exe" and it will work. There are sometimes troubles with swapping media so if it's only on a single disk, your chances are improved.

    That said, this forum isn't really the best place to discuss getting started with wine, you'd be better off becoming familiar with https://www.winehq.org/

      I guess it is a few decades since you ran any sort of live windows version then....

        That wasn't my point! Point is that Fedora requires 1.3 G on installation garbage to get an halfassed Windows subsystem re-implementation set up. Knowing this, I can easily install twice or third that size and get a real Windows system that actually operates "correctly" (in terms of Windows).

        I remember times where Wine took less than 300mb for an full installation. These days Fedora bundles 32bit as weill as 64bit. No matter if you "need" the 32bit stuff (if you run Windows 64bit programs only) or not.

              Not that big of a deal these days, Considering win10 eats over 50gb on a fresh install.

                I would say it's between 15-20 gb depending on the architecture you're on.

                  Intel 64bit. For the last couple of years for me it's sits heavily at 51GB using win10 Pro even with candy crush & farming saga removed!
                  Back on topic, I dont mind the size of wine because the performance is amazing compared to where it was at a year or so ago.

                    Dude, disk space is extremely cheap these days. Stop whining.

                      It depends on how your working environment is set up. Just because disk space is cheap these days doesn't mean that it fits any use case.
