That is strange. I don't know of a reason why you would get the message
"MSVCRT.dll" failed to initialize.
Basically, you cannot use Wine's msvcrt because it does not implement
the function _mbsspnp() (which I think is the problem making ACT 6 not
work). And a native msvcrt is breaking for some mysterious reason which
I don't know how to solve. So you seem to be stuck.
What is really needed is an implementation of _mbsspnp() in Wine's
msvcrt, but that appears to be non-trivial. Of course, once past that,
the program could possibly break somewhere else. Though I guess ACT 6 is
a bit old, so there is a decent chance that it might work if that
function were implemented.
