Long shot: Can anyone get Rapidocs to work under WINE 20040615?

I know this is a long shot, but if anyone has tried this, or is bored enough 
to give it a shot, I'd really like to know why Rapidocs will not work under 
WINE 20040615 (I'm using the rpm for Fedora Core1)?

Rapidocs Classic is a well known (quite simple!) program to view/create 
legal documents.  It can be downloaded for free from 

It requires IE3 or later.  I am using a fresh .wine after installing IE6 
using Mike Hearn's brilliant script at http://bylands.dur.ac.uk/~mh/wine-ie 
(which worked flawlessly by the way).

Rapidocs installs, but gets complaints from mfc42.dll and is basically 
worthless after that.  It will not load any documents, and you cannot even 
quit--the OK button doesn't even work.

Anyhow, I know this is pretty vague, but maybe someone has been successful 
and could tell me what I'm supposed to do?
