Write the tests and check them against Wine and at least one version
of Windows (more if you have access to them).

Once the tests are in, you can then check the results on the
http://test.winehq.org/data/ page. If you don't have access to the
failing version/configuration, you can post the patch to wine-devel
and ask for testing on XYZ version of Windows.
