I have an application that requires JRE to run on Windows. I have now migrated to Ubuntu and am trying to run the same application using WINE. However I get the error: "No Java Found".

Any ideas how I can run the application?

Is it a windows application that needs JRE or is it a Java application? –  Otto Allmendinger Jun 29 '09 at 23:31

If it is a Java app it will just work on Java in Linux - without WINE.

Have you tried installing the windows JRE in WINE? This page says it works: http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=application&iId=1372
