What answers the name wine in codeweavers wine is the shell script I
know as winelauncher.  You might try running the wine binary barefoot
and see if that makes a difference.  Not sure where codeweavers puts it,
but it is probably named wine.bin, so
find / -type f -name 'wine.bin'

should find it, but it may take a while.

I also advised you to get a current Wine.  :-)

wine --version
Wine release 20020122

Sorry, that is not enough context.  There is an awful lot of wasted
motion in the windose API.  From that snippet, the app pulled the broken
filename out of thin air and started worrying at it.  Hang on!  There is
an extra escaped quote (\") at the end of that.

Dumb question:  Does this app work in windose with a similar
directory/file structure?

Tell you what.  If you will get the current wine and still have the same
problem, you may send me up tp 500k of gzipped relay trace (I doubt the
list wants that much).

Or put the attached cmdl.exe in 'C:\Program Files\intuit\qbtimer\' and
run it, and show us the output.  That might be easier and more
productive.  This is the source:

#include <stdio.h>
#include <win.h>
main(int argc, char **argv)
    int i;
    for (i = 0; i < argc; i++)
        printf("arg %d: /%s/\n", i, argv[i]);

I compiled it with lcc-win and Wine.
