Please read the Winelib Users Guide on how to properly use a complete
Wine infrastructure with that.
Simply linking in the Winelib file to your program to access that DLL
is NOT an option.

(unless you did initialize it properly and the error is actually
being caused by some other problem)

Hmm, do we have that in the FAQ yet ?
