Adding the following registry key prior running installer makes the services
installer succeed.

--- snip ---
$ wine reg add "HKLM\\SYSTEM\\CurrentControlSet\\Control\\VirtualDeviceDrivers"
--- snip ---

The installer adds "rnbovdd.dll" to "VDD" value (REG_MULTI_SZ) probably for
supporting 16 bit legacy apps.

VDDs are outdated technology from NTVDM era and won't work anyway.

Windows NT Virtual MS-DOS Machines

In Windows NT, each MS-DOS-based application and 16-bit Windows-based
applications run in a Windows NT virtual MS-DOS machine (NTVDM), a
single-threaded process that supports 16-bit applications in a 32-bit
environment. Windows NT includes the necessary virtual device drivers (VDDs)
for the mouse, keyboard, printer, COM ports, and network support. The VDDs are
loaded into every VDM based on values stored in the Registry. Information about
VDDs is found in the following Registry path:


The system manages any changes to the VDD entries automatically when you add a
device driver by using Windows NT Setup.

After installation the following services run through "autostart" service type:
