In order to install Wine, users need to first of all download Wine 3.0 here. Users need to download either ‘wine-3.0-arm‘ or ‘wine-3.0-x86‘ and not the release candidate (rc) APKs. Once installed, users will get a full-screen Windows display, including a Start menu, and support for audio and basic graphics.
Since Wine is a compatibility layer it does not fully support smartphones with ARM processors and instead works well with x86 Android handsets. For smartphones with ARM processors, only apps that are ported to Windows RT work well. See list of such apps here.
