Another win32 implementation: hiweedlayer?

It is supposedly a Windows layer like Wine.

Running strings on their single executable, I see
messages like
%s is being traced!
location has changed!
abnormal behavior!
shell has changed!
%s has expired!
Please contact your provider

which look like they're from this little bit of malware:

but perhaps they're just trying to keep people from reverse-engineering
their code (or finding out that they have Wine code inside?).

Using google language tools to translate the page,
it looks like somebody already asked them if they were related to
wine, but they didn't really answer.

Can somebody fluent in Chinese make contact with them and see
what their story is with regard to wine?
