Next, I suppose, we need to see $WINEPREFIX/config.  This letter comes
by an app that loads mfc42.dll (that it installed in its own directory),
which then requires msvcrt.dll ( that it installed in windows/system ).

Here is my [DllOverrides]:

"*"            = "builtin, so, native"

"msvcrt"       = "native"
"riched32"     = "native"

"msvcrt"       = "native"

I admit, I am a bigot.  Wine builtins, when they work at all, work
better than Mr. Bill's.  My config probably won't work for you, but
maybe it will give you ideas?

Do you ^^^^^^ have this file?  error 2 is usually "no such"
AFAIK thunks are mechanisms by which 16 and 32 bit windows programs get
at each other.  They may be sparsely implemented in Wine.  Maybe we
slept through their heyday.

Sorry, Wine is basically the only GUI app I use - to get and send mail
for free.  I am GUI challenged, but maybe someone else can help.
