Did you install it with Wine ? You need  to add the winedefault.reg data
to the Wine registry using regapi and it will install correctly. It starts
for me after that using only builtin libraries, with some problems - it seems
that this app could be a good test bed for Ole conformance given the number of 
FIXME issued, and a few run-time errors (caught by the exception handlers
of Delphi)

I can't test further for now since I don't have any wrapped file available.
