    There is a little windows app that I would really like to use (with Wine).
    But, as geo-blocking and apartheiding are getting worse by the minute, I would have to use it with Tor.

    Now, after a couple of days of banging my head against any available hard surface - it's a pretty hard head, but it's not looking very pretty by now - I came across this lovely project. Which, contrary to just about anything else I tried, actually seems to do it. Anything I try works faultlessly, even proxychains google-chrome doesn't even blink (try that with usewithtor:)

    Except, of course, the little Wine app, which seems to work… except at login I get geo-caught, spat upon, and laughed at for good measure.

    It looks as if, even though I use proxychains littlewineapp.exe, (the app launches and connects just fine and all) the Wine just ignores the proxychains and goes straight to its geo-doom and gloom.

    Any suggestion?

    Not the right place to get help?
    But then there isn't another on on the "support" page.
    Could it be a port issue? Do I have to redirect/open/something?

    Come on, pretty please, there has to be a solution to this.

    Bunch of wimps :)

    Anyway. I'll give you one more clue.
    It's not a port issue. If I proxychain the Wine Internet Exploder, it uses my real, damned, apartheid, geoloco, address. With port 80. So it's the Wine. It doesn't Tor. Why not? Do I really have to use Microsoft Windows?

    proxychains works only for things that call socket() and similar API's via (i.e. dynamic object).
    if your wine is statically linked or uses linux syscalls directly, it won't work.
    in that case you can still try to rebuild wine in a dynamically linked way, or use something like
