I'm getting critical errors for my sound system that I would expect

.wine/config" returns nothing).
So it looks like regapi could fix .wine/config if I had it or I could
figure out how to get it and run it.
Or I could just edit .wine/config.  Parsing the syntax appears
nontrivial to me and I don't know what value to use.

Could some tell me how to fix this.  

Thanks in advance for your help.


PS. I also get a "Default Taskbar not found" that may be fixed just as
easily. Don't know why I would care about a TaskBar.
