Possibly, I don't know windoze at all. I just looked at the trace output,
which key the program tried to open, and grepped that string in my mail
archive. What I found, I entered to the registry, and the program was
happy then.
  So, to prevent guessing or entering some default values for everybody,
maybe it could be made configurable using winecfg; I can imagine a tab
called "I/O ports" or similarly, which would allow users to enter their
port configuration similarly as for disk drives. winecfg would create
dosdevices links (or its equivalent) as well as those registry entries.
