That is fairly trivial to figure out. Start your app with Wine on the
command line and it will crash with an exception:
  Call from <address> to unimplemented function MSVCP60.<function>

Once you have those please open a bug on for

MSVCP60.dll wasn't available in wine-0.9.58. It was introduced in
wine-1.3.19. They were probably using the dll that came with your app or
installed it from somewhere else.

Please open a bug for those issues too.

Open the bug reports :)  If there is a free downloadable version/demo
that exhibits the same issues please add it to the "URL" field.
