You have installed wine, but you may need to configure it. Please run winecfg in your terminal.
You may also need to use the command line to tell Wine to open an application the first time you do so.
For example, if I was trying to run "application.exe" in the downloads folder:
The application should run and should ...
If you have problems with starting MS Office with wine (silent crashes, etc.) then you might be missing some libraries (.dll) or you haven't properly installed it (You can install most of them through Winetricks).
To troubleshoot it, try running it through terminal like this:
you should get some error details.

I installed WINE on my system using the ubuntu-wine PPA (personal package archive) because the software center WINE would not install and had no problems with it on my system which is freya 0.3.2 64-bit.
To add the PPA and install WINE run the following
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install wine1.8
For a dumb reason you need to run sudo apt-get install wine elementary-desktop or else it might break Freya. Just be careful and use this command instead-it's what I used.

Hopefully this helps :)
To get the file extension you can use:
file -b --mime-type FILENAME
in this case : application/x-wine-extension-unitypackage
After that, copy the icon you need to use to /usr/share/icons/ICONTHEME in the mimetypes folder with this file name application-x-wine-extension-unitypackage
Rebuild the icon cache using sudo gtk-update-icon-cache -f /usr/share/...
Your WINE repository is very old and deprecated (see here) and does not have proper update packages for your OS. To fix this issue, first remove this PPA from your system:
sudo add-apt-repository --remove ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa
and then add the newer WINE PPA:
sudo apt-key add Release.key
The elementary OS is a distro based on a "long term support" (LTS) version of Ubuntu. This LTS versions only have packages with a stable status and strongly tested before the release.
That said, the version of wine at the moment of the release of current Ubuntu LTS, back in April 2014, was wine 1.6. The wine 1.8 was only released in December 2015, so it's ...
Thanks All. I tried the suggested fix, but it didn't work. I did find something that seemed to fix what had happened. I used these commands to create a file with all of the packages that had been deleted. Then I ran the file to reinstall them.
echo '#!/bin/bash' > restore
echo sudo apt-get install `grep Remove /var/log/apt/history.log | tail -1 | sed ...
About the repository
Run the following commands on a terminal window
sudo add-apt-repository -r ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa
(removing the PPA ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa)
wget https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/Release.key | sudo apt-key add -
(downloading and adding to the system the GPG key of WineHQ's repository)
sudo apt-add-repository 'https://dl.winehq.org/wine-...
This worked for me, after struggling for a while:
sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
sudo apt update
sudo apt install wine-staging-i386
sudo apt -y install --install-recommends wine-staging
sudo apt -y install --install-recommends winehq-staging
Then reboot. If anything bad happens, try this:
sudo apt install -f
I was having issues earlier tonight installing wine-staging on Elementary OS Juno following WineHQ's install instructions. I found this Juno Install Guide by itsjaredbs and his instructions worked. Hope this works for you good luck.
show me apt install wine
sudo apt install wine1.6-i386
Gave me an error,

Did you try looking in WINE forums for the answer to this? It's quite possible there aren't many eOS users doing this exact task, and there may be other places online more likely to know the answer
[comment was accepted answer so posting as answer]
This is an issue with Wine. Because GTA SA uses some method to close itself which Wine is not familiar with, it exits unexpectedly. This makes Wine unable to reset the resolution back.
The most easy fix for this is to run GTA SA in a "virtual desktop". You can do this by going to Wine configuration, Graphics and turning on virtual desktops.
I've got this problem before and, unfortunately, I couldn't solve it without adding a ppa. Please note that you have limited slots to ppas, so use it only when you really need it. If you can avoid it, please do so.
Also, keep an updated backup of your system, because packages cannot be checked for security loopholes.
I would also strongly advise you to ...
I had the same dependency problem.But instead of fighting with the dependencies I added the ubuntu-wine PPA by using sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa -y && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install wine(which I found at https://askubuntu.com/questions/316025/how-to-install-and-configure-wine).
So I recommend you roll-back your ...
A primer on how Wine works
As it name states, "Wine Is Not an Emulator". Wine doesn't create a Windows environment that .exes can live in: it relies on the use of fake libraries to trick .exes into thinking they're talking with Windows, when really it's just the Linux kernel in disguise. As such, it will be faster than an emulator (ie, Virtualbox) but may ...
If faced such problem some time ago, when I got a libc update in a machine with nVidia proprietary driver install, It hanged with blinking leds.
The solution was:
Reboot and Press Shift to show grub menu
Select recovery mode.
Run a file system check

Open Synaptic and go to Settings>Preferences, then check "Show package properties in the main window":
Now, find the package that is broken, and under its properties, click dependencies. In the list you will see a package that is in italics.
I have no broken packages so mine are not in italics.
Once you've identified this package, you'll need to install ...
