you should first found out (e.g. using WINEDEBUG=+reg) what the app
really wants. i had the case, that a game wanted a very current
directx-version and i just had to set a new number in wine.inf and
everything worked fine then. imho faking the most current version is the
best thing to do - i doubt that there are many apps out there that
really ask for a certain (lower) version number?
