Sounds like a race :-) . I don't know anything about wine's msi and dcom 
implementation(which installshield uses heavilly). DCOM is about the most 
complex thing in Windows :-/

One think you can try if that game works with windows 98 too is to use native 
msi 2.0 and / or native dcom98 . If that fails in the same way it is a bug 
somewhere else(ntdll / kernel), otherwise most likely msi or dcom. Dan's 
Winetricks may help with installing that. You need winver = win98 for native 
msi and dcom.
