Seems like a copy protection to me. Windows programs usually use non portable
ways to detect if a debugger is running, ... usually by trying to read or
write from/to kernel space or from/to the interrupt vector, which results in
a crash when running the program in wine.
The easiest way to solve the problem would be to crack your program (and
after that people still don't believe that a crack can be used in a legal way
If you can't, then you'll have to figure out what the copy protection tries
to do, and then implement an exception handler to support it in wine.
