At the risk of posting too much information,
here's another roadblock faced by an important potential user.'s hora.exe (one of the apps
needed by the european government desktop migration)
is an Oracle DBA helper tool, and testing it means
connecting to an Oracle database.  That means, I think,
installing the Oracle client library under Wine.
Sadly, this fails during install; the installer claims that
advapi.CreateService is crashing.

Somebody with a little free time could probably
learn more by adding more trace statements in CreateService.
