This works fine for dll's that Wine doesn't implement at all, but if you
want to try using a native dll that Wine is only missing a few functions
to, you must tell Wine in ~/.wine/config that it should use the native
windows one:

"oleaut32" = "native"
"*"        = "builtin, so, native"

You might find man wine.conf interesting, particularly AppDefaults.

or, for now:

wine --dll oleaut32=n blah.exe

As Gerard pointed out, there is now a stub for this function in the
builtin oleaut32.  It might be enough to satisfy your app, or at least
keep the debugger at bay.  Help is underway at all hours of the day and

I registered some time ago, but I have lost my number.  (I guess I let
it roll of the end of my mail logs :-).  Is there a way I can ask it?
