There are several points to consider :
-- it may be trying to load some unsupported VxD needed to access the dongle
   before it produces this error message (you do get several warnings and
   error messages from wine, don't you ?)
-- you may need to allow read/write access to the printer(?) port where the 
   dongle is attached in your wine configuration file.
-- it may be trying to identify the hardware address of your network card in
   addition to the dongle, which may require some not-yet-supported functions
