Can anyone help me with this error? I get this error when I run my vb 
script in wine. The script creates a shortcut and works fine when I 
run it at a cmd prompt in Windows. I'm new to both vb script and wine.

This occurred using wine version 0.9.31 on linux fedora core 5 (2.6.15-
1.2054_FC5) running in VMWare on a Dell PC.

I've installed Windows Script 5.6 for Windows XP into my wine 
installation. Part of my problem may be that I'm running wine with the 
windows version set to Windows 98. The reason I'm doing this is I 
can't get cscript to work with my Windows version set to XP. Here is 
the error I get when just trying to run cscript at the cmd prompt in 
wine with the Windows version set to XP: 

fixme:ole:CoInitializeSecurity ((nil),-1,(nil),(nil),0,3,(nil),0, 
(nil)) - stub! 

Here is a copy of my vb script. It is a script to create a shortcut. 
This is really all I need to do. If anyone knows of a another way to 
create a shortcut that works in wine using a script please let me 

'VSScript that can be run to create a shortcut 
'Usage (from a cmd line): cscript mk_shortcut.vbs "<shortcut name>" 
"<shortcut target>" "<shortcut location>" 
'Example: cscript mk_shortcut.vbs "notepad_shortcut" "C:\Windows 
\Notepad.exe" "U:\some_directory" 
'TODO: Add some error checking (currently none since I don't know how 
in VBScript) 
Dim WSHShell, fs 
Set WSHShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell") 
Set fs = WScript.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") 
Function MakeDesktopShortcut( name, target, shortcut_location ) 
Dim Shortcut,StartupPath 
Set Shortcut = WSHShell.CreateShortcut(shortcut_location & "\" & name 
& ".lnk") 
Shortcut.TargetPath = target 
StartupPath = fs.GetParentFolderName( target ) 
If fs.FolderExists( StartupPath ) then 
Shortcut.WorkingDirectory = StartupPath 
End If 
End Function 
Dim Shortcut_name, Shortcut_target, Shortcut_location 
Shortcut_name = WScript.Arguments.Item(0) 
Shortcut_target = WScript.Arguments.Item(1) 
Shortcut_location = WScript.Arguments.Item(2) 
MakeDesktopShortcut Shortcut_name, Shortcut_target, Shortcut_location
