How can an app detect it's running under WINE?

If you type "set" at a CMD prompt is there anything about the environment variables returned that clues you to a WINE environment?

I've already searched but I didn't find anything.

What do you get for @OSBuild, @OSType, and @OSVersion?

I've run AutoIt under WINE before (on SUSE 10), but don't have that set up any more, so I can't test.

@Larry: if I look at the output of the command 'set', there's a lot of stuff that could let me think I'm running under Wine. For instance, I could check the env. variable %LOGNAME%, which is a typical Unix command, but is this method reliable?

This is the output:

Another way could be check the reg key HKLM\software\wine, but again, is this reliable?

Seems like the %_% variable would be best, but I understand you're desire for a fool proof method. Have you tried the WINE forums?

edit: Actually perhaps %_% isn't the best since WINE could be installed in other locations...
