That's great!  I have a copy, too, but the only thing
I did with it was file a bug about the installer...

Most of us use log files rather than debuggers to
track this kind of thing down.   You might want to try
WINEDEBUG=+seh,+relay wine catia.exe > log 2>&1
and then get the shortest possible session that reproduces
the bug (ideally, noninteractive; does catia take a commandline
parameter to open a file?)

The trick is to wade through the log file without despairing at
how big it is.  Tools like grep, head, tail, and in bad cases, perl or sed,
are handy for this...
