I just took the first bug which was open ... this info also applies to several
other bugs (even closed/invalid ones).

That 'winetricks vcrun2005' step is seriously broken.
I don't know who came up with that "clever" idea to set winver to win2k before
running that vc2005 redist installer.
If I remember correctly this was not the case in earlier times/versions - for a
good reason.

With winver set to win2k before the installer you'll end up with newer ATL, CRT
and MFC runtimes installed in system32 which is *plain* wrong.
Win2K and WinXP OS loaders implement different strategies when it comes to
loading of side-by-side assemblies and wine obviously doesn't (want to)
resemble Win2K.

vcrun2005sp1 step partly "repairs" this - hence one can see people giving
"tips" like 'winetricks vcrun2005 vcrun2005sp1' ...

Again: You have to use default winver XP to get the VC2005 side-by-side
assemblies properly installed!
