[Wine] problem with windows program in linux in virtual machine...

I'm a complete linux newbie, let alone wine, easy-peasy and netbooks.
Having said that, I'm looking at buying the eee pc 701 sd and putting easy-peasy on it.
However the reason I need a netbook is to run a cricket scoring program that is only available in windows.
I didn't want to fork out for the netbook until I knew the cricket software will run, so I tried the following:
1. installed vmware on my home pc
2. installed easy-peasy in the virtual machine
3. then installed wine, again in the vm
I then tried to install the cricket program but it wouldn't install, let alone run.
I get an error message that says error in "setodbcfolders". Am I right in thinking this is because it's running in a virtual machine?
I know it's a little perverse to install vmware to run linux, to then run wine, to run a windows program but like I say, this program must be able to run on whatever netbook I buy.
Can anybody help me please? Maybe by trying out the software for me or by giving some advice on how to get the software installed?
Here's a link to the cricket software:
Thanks very much,
