Starting point to debug an application error

I'm playing with a windows program used to develop code for a uC. The
application is free to download and installs cleanly with no dependence
on external hardware. It's pretty much working except for two details.
A) The file tree on the left of the application throws an application
exception when clicking on any items.
B) It won't recognise there is a serial port configured.
I'm working on (B) myself and making progress. It's all to do with
registry keys windows 2k+ creates when a serial port is
detected/created. This is not an issue for me and I think I can make it
work relatively cleanly.
I'm having trouble with (A). I've done full traces, relay traces and
played with the debugger, but I don't seem to be able to get a starting
point to track down the error. The application handles it internally and
does not seem to throw an exception at wine. No crash, just not working.
If someone has the time to look at it, I'd love a pointer on where / how
to start investigating this..
The application is available here. I'd direct link it but their web
server won't allow a download without the correct references.
I've tried it on the latest CVS as of this morning. I've also built and
tested against crossover-7 sources today. Both fail in precisely the
