Musical OCR - MSGBOX_OnInit task modal msgbox !...

I'm trying to use SharpEye2 under Wine: that is a Musical Optical
Recognition (musical OCR) program, getting a scanned image and
outputting a digital score - look at 
It is probably the best such program among the few existing ones and the
only thing I miss from Windows.

Anyway, the installation goes perfectly, but when I try to run it, a
window appears saying "Failed to initialize paths" and Wine stops with
"fixme:dialog:MSGBOX_OnInit task modal msgbox ! Not modal yet."

I'd like a lot to have it working...
Some weeks ago I tryed with Crossover-Plugin and it almost worked: the
program started, was able to open his existing files, modify them (it
has a musical editor to correct the recognition errors) and saving both
in his format and in other musical notation ones; on the other hand it
was not able to recognize new images - to do his work!
I was using the demo 1.0.1: I noticed that the same window ("Failed to
initialize paths") appeared sometimes, dipendig on the directory I
launched the script from. On the other hand with 1.1.0 that
window appears all times and the program doesn't start.

Can you help me?

I am using Wine 20020512 under suse 7.1. I'll attach my config file, in
case it is useful someway. Tell me whether you need more information and
how I can get them.

Thanks in advance!
