Help with Revelant demo

[I'm prefacing this by saying know next to nothing about Windows]

I've had a quick go at getting the (newer) demo of Eidos' Revenant game to
run. The install works ok, but when I try to run the demo, I get a msgbox
  "FATAL ERROR", "Unable to initialize Network"
and the following appearing on stderr:
> fixme:ole:CoCreateInstance no classfactory created for
>  {2fe8f810-b2a5-11d0-a787-0000f803abfc}, hres is 0x80040154

Rerunning with the "-debugmsg +ole" option, I get some (not terribly
useful) extra info:
> trace:ole:OLE32_DllEntryPoint 0x4087b000 0x1 0x1
> trace:ole:CoInitializeEx ((nil), 2)
> trace:ole:CoInitializeEx () - Initializing the COM libraries

I did a Google search and "2fe8f810-b2a5-11d0-a787-0000f803abfc" seems to
be the CLSID of DirectPlayLobby.

On a seperate note, I can't figure out which bit (or lack) of WINE is
causing the "network error". From what I can see, there doesn't seem to be
any network activity as rerunning with "-debugmsg +wnet,+winsock" doesn't
produce any extra output. FWIW, there is an .INI file with the following:
> [Network]
> ConnectType=none
> SessionName=none
> Provider=IPX
> ConnectTime=5

So my questions are:

1. How easy would it be to fix/add CLSID_DirectPlayLobby? (where do I

2. Any suggestions how to go about debugging the apparently fatal "No
   Network" msgbox?
