Thanks.  I just tried installing it following your instructions
(I can read French, but you also have english instructions)
and ran into the following problems:
1) I had to install the VB6 runtimes before running your app.
2) Even after installing Libraries.exe, your app claimed that
dao350.exe was not installed.  Running
$ WINEDEBUG=+file ~/wine-git/wine NavigationMAJ.exe  > log 2>&1
$ grep FindFirst.*DAO350 log
trace:file:FindFirstFileExW L"C:\\Program
Files\\FouFou\\Navigation\\DAO350.DLL" 0 0x33f060 0 (nil) 0
trace:file:FindFirstFileExW L"c:\\windows\\DAO350.DLL" 0 0x33f060 0 (nil) 0
trace:file:FindFirstFileExW L"c:\\windows\\system32\\DAO350.DLL" 0
0x33f060 0 (nil) 0
shows that your app doesn't search the directory where Librarie.exe
installed DAO350.exe, namely
  Program Files/Common Files/DAO350.dll
Could you update your app to fix at least the latter part?

wine-devel is it.
