maybe you have an NT version of MSI installed?

It seems to be trying to access the NT security APIs.  Maybe the problem is
that it may be testing for existence of these APIs by trying to call
GetProcAddress on them.  Wine's native DLLs are likely going to be a problem
for any app that tends to do this for testing for the existence of an API.
I've seen a lot of apps do this in the past, though I never really thought
about it as a problem until I started looking at wine.  Of course, this
process of "looking up" a function to see if it exists works fine in
windows, since MS doesn't provide (stub) the function in versions of DLLs
that don't have it.
