Hello.

Sorry for my bad english. I want to install Battle.net app on my ntfs partition. But when i chose disc and patch battle.net app show me windows: Please log in as administrator.
I have kubuntu 14.04 32bit.
On 13.10 32 bit it works great.
Other apps with a user privileges like krusader writing, deleting on the ntfs partition with no problems.

Thanks for ansfer.

What you want to do is not supported and generally speaking not recommended. People have varying rates of success, as you yourself have experienced...

Crossover's Wine core can read but not write to NTFS correctly so we don't recommending running programs or accessing files located on an NTFS filesystem.

I always wondered about that. Awhile back I tried putting my bottles on an ntfs backup partition and it was hit or miss.
