I noticed that, way back six years ago, there
was interest in getting winbench '99 running on wine:

Winbench '99 is still available as a free download from
(check out the cool Y2K bug in the directory listing there).
I tried it just now with current wine, and it installs ok, but
when you start it, it aborts with the error
   Create system info object failed
and wine shows
~/.wine/drive_c/ZDBENCH/UI32$ ~/wine-git/wine ZDBUI32.exe
err:ole:CoGetClassObject class {18483923-9673-11cf-ad24-149efa000000}
not registered
err:ole:CoGetClassObject no class object
{18483923-9673-11cf-ad24-149efa000000} could be created for context

Anyone know what's up with that, or whether this worked with Wine at one time?

p.s. I'd have opened up a report in Bugzilla, but
doesn't seem to be listening on port 80 at the moment.
