maybe what you need is an older version of wine.

I have some problems with serial port devices that works with
wine 20001026, but not with versions later than that.

Sometime after 20001026, wine had a major change in the serial
part that caused this problem.

The result I have with this app and later wines is that I don't
have a serial port.
