another thought: although this clearly looks like a standard 32 bit app
targeting NT-based systems there might exist some small legacy code within app
(seems to be Delphi-based) requiring 16 bit stuff, hence the PE compressor uses
the ordinals-import.

"KERNEL32 4.0 Ordinal-Only Exports":


--- quote ---
The table below lists all the KERNEL32 functions that are exported only by
ordinal in version 4.0, i.e., for Windows 95. These all continue into the
versions for Windows 98 and Windows Me. None are ever exported from any NT
--- quote ---

As stated there: this approach won't work for any NT-based system.

These ordinals will be resolved incorrectly on any native Windows NT-based
If this app works in Windows NT+ it's because of pure luck (16 bit code parts
never called).

I think there is nothing to change in Wine. The user has to run this app in
Win9X mode to work around the bug.
