Am I missing something? I have a Debian Server set up with wine installed (Gnome desktop).

I have a directory called


in here I have my windows exe file 1500.exe

From the desktop I double click the icon for 1500.exe and the application opens.

In the directory I then copy and paste the exe file, and rename it to 1501.exe. But if I double click the new file nothing happens (in fact the 1500.exe window disappears, but is still running).

How can I get both 1500.exe and 1501.exe to run at the same time.

    This could be a limitation of the .exe and not on wine. If you provide additional information of what software it is, you can receive an answer :) – user34720 Jan 12 '16 at 15:56
  • Well spotted, It doesn't work on Windows either. I think I need to rephrase my question . . . – IGGt Jan 12 '16 at 16:08
