Winetricks for adding dependencies in Wine

Learning how Wine allows emulation of Windows works under FreeBSD can be a task in of itself, let alone installing applications.  Winetricks is a script aimed at making the installation of Windows dependencies a much easier task.

According to http://wiki.winehq.org/winetricks the script is maintained and hosted by DanKegel at http://www.kegel.com/wine/winetricks. Right-click on that link and use ‘save as’ to save a fresh copy. Or you can get it from the commandline with the command:

wget http://www.kegel.com/wine/winetricks

I’ve been using Winetricks and thought it would be worth sharing for anyone else who’s yearned for an easier way to manage the dependencies in wine.
