If they have enough expertise to know that the CLSID is that of a DXDiag 
object then I think they will know that they can register it by using 
regsvr32 and I don't think this is the right place for documenting the 
possible reasons for the error. However, this particular problem was 
that the user didn't re-register all of the DLLs after upgrading. Maybe 
we should have something in the docs that tells the user to do this 
after upgrading to a new version of Wine or have it done automatically
