yes it is possible. but you'll have to try, wether your app will work. Some 
hints are maybe found in the app db on winehq.com.
generally, if you have the possibility to use dcom dlls native (that 
translates into "you have a win98 licence" :-) this helps a lot. 

I would try to install the app with wine. if this doesn't work you can try to 
copy an windows installation to your .wine dir (don't forget to export the 
registry and import it into wine).

hope this helps!
