While this may be true in some circumstances,
I *never* recommend using cracks.  Not only
are they of dubious legality, they can also carry
cooties.  Any app that requires a crack to run
should IMHO be rated "garbage" in the wine appdb.
I know there are crack-smokers out there who
disagree, but that's my stand.

But the advice to install from scratch is usually good.
Wine is not so good at running apps already
installed inside Windows.
