Has thousands of open discussions so I won't answer this one but share that when I need Windows on Linux I use "Virtual Box."

Wine? Sorry, too many open discussions so I have to defer to those.

A Windows app? Use VMWare, Virtual Box etc.

A Linux app? Which one?

Something wrong with the package you downloaded, a bug, get one that's stable and install it. I just checked my WINE version, it's 1.6.1 and I've no problems with it. Mainly use it for LViewPro graphics software version D cause GIMP to me is a PIA to use for just some quick adjustments to photos.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
