I was using it to try to solve a problem. I was assuming that using the native
DLL fixed the issue.

Before having read the last post on here, I tried some other things. Like,
installing dotnet20, corefonts, riched20, and vcrun2003 with winetricks to see
if it made any difference running the program. My reasoning is that some newer
versions of this app on the appDB mentioned installing the .NET Framework
(which I understand, if it's needed, although I don't recall that being a
requirement, it's probably a waste of time to bother with this app until
support improves). It didn't make any difference.

So, after starting with a new .wine directory (to get rid of the .NET
framework) I tried the +ole, +oledlg trace. It didn't produce any new info
about ole, but I did notice something new (see attachment). This time when I
installed it, and ran it, the program had to skip over some enviroment
variables. I'm not 100% positive since I'm no WINE guru in any way, but I
assume that's related to a registry error. If so, that would also explain
classes that ole complains about not being registered, and thus be an issue
where the installer registers what need be during installation. (So far, the
times I have installed the program I didn't bother starting the installer from
the terminal because it seemed to be working properly.)
