           Summary: Dragon Naturally Speaking 7 crashes on startup
           Product: Wine
           Version: CVS
          Platform: Other
               URL: http://nuance.com
        OS/Version: other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: wine-misc
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: dank at kegel.com

To install DNS 7, you have to set the IE 6 registry key
(perhaps using winetricks fakeie6).  After installation,
running it with

$ cd /data/dkegel/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/ScanSoft/NaturallySpeaking
$ wine Program/natspeak.exe

crashes.  The file Dragon.log says
  could not load grammar list
but I don't believe it... it does in fact open
gramlist.dat.  Right after that, it enters what looks like
copy protection code.  It does kernel32.FindFirstChangeNotificationA
on its Program directory (possibly to see if you swap out DLLs),
then checks all sorts of product features to see if you have
the rights to them.   Eventually it calls fputs with
 "Windows returned an unexpected error code: Details are 0"
into Dragon.log.

The appdb has a recipe using ies4linux which supposedly
gets this working, so I tried using native dcom and msvcrt,
but it didn't seem to help.
