    Please correct me if I am wrong, but it seems you are trying to run 32bit windows software on 64bit wine? VL64 is "multilib ready" like SW64. we do not have the space or the desire to be multilib out of the box.

    So far what I've done is attempt to build wine with the same SlackBuild as used on 32 bit, but with the --enable-win64 option.

    I am following the first portion of instruction from here. http:wiki.winehq.org/Wine64

    Wine builds fine but does not run and I believe that is because the resulting executables are still 32 bit. To confirm I downloaded Alienbob's 64bit wine package and installed. It had the same result.

    I am now altered the SlackBuild to include the instruction for the WoW64 set-up described in the link above. I'll let you know how that goes.

    Are there any errors when trying to start wine?

    Have you ran file on the binaries to see if they are 32bit?
