Thanks for your suggestions Rein.

I copied the Betsy Flanagan file to my /windows/Fonts/ directory from 

I then ran the program and the same error occured.

In the font selection dialogue, there is no TTF symbols at all, however, 
some fonts (including betsy) seem to have a little printer symbol next 
them, although it might not be a printer. Is that implying some sort of 
PS font thing is happening or is this the TTF symbol?

Perhaps I need to rebuild fonts or something? Or maybe the original copy 
of Betsy is displacing the one in /Fonts/?

I have attached the wine.log, thanks for your help!
