[Wine]Application -almost- working

Hello all from a wine newbie.
I have an old favorite Windows application that is
one of the last impediments to being completely
Windows free. The app was written in vb I am pretty
sure as it requires vbrun300.dll
After sorting out some font related problems I got
it running but there is a hiccup that is very
maddening: After the first (or second) running, a
function of the program hangs. Seems odd because
it works fine the first time the app is run.
The app's purpose is editing, cataloging and
rendering an ASCII based musical notation system
called "abc". The hang occurs while rendering the
standard notation version. This is done in a
somewhat Gimp-like separate windows; i.e. there
is a tune selection (files) window. A file, then
a tune may be selected here. One of the functions
available in the tune selection window is the
ability to "Draw" the standard notation (staves,
notes, rests, etc.). This is done in a different
After the first running, the program hangs with
a Windows style hourglass when it should be making
the rendering. The window (and program) may be
closed by clicking on the X in upper right.
In the console, I get the error:
fixme:hook:SetWindowsHookEx16 hook type 1 broken in Win16
Searching usenet I have found a few references to
this message but not anything that helped me.
I have installed a newer version of vbrun300.dll
(1999 from Microsoft's site) than the one I started
with (1993 from ???) to no avail.
BTW the app is http://www.abc2win.com/
TIA - Any and all suggestions welcome!
