Are you trying to use WinXP DLLs? If so, in your ~/.wine/config try 
setting all DLLs, including default DLLs, to native.

Is the Windows partition mounted so that it is owned by you, the user?

Have you considered using a fake windows partition? Perhaps the 
Registered version does not use the VxD that is causing me problems.

You could try running:

wine --debugmsg +win32,+loaddll -- ACDSee5 &> wine.log

Then search through the file for License.dll. I see this, and though it 
is uses ACDTrialLicense.dll, it should be similar:

trace:win32:MODULE_GetProcAddress (40bb0000,VerQueryValueA (-1))
trace:win32:PE_FindExportedFunction (VerQueryValueA)
trace:win32:PE_CreateModule Import Address Table directory ignored
