Thank you for the explanation.
Could the windows registry entries be mapped to the one wine needs?
I guess nobody expects instant 100% success but if the most important
ones could cover over 90% of the apps then that could be a decent start
and worth improving and maintaining in the future.
Unfortunately the only feedback which arrives to us is that wine users are
annoyed/confused by the separate installation for wine. Apparently this is
a major wine usability and adaption problem.
