guess yes, it should be Win ME to start looking for.

this tells, the implementation of MSVCRT.DLL is incomplete/not suitable
for use with MSVCP60.DLL (there are some code-page collation related
function missing).  I guess this can only be the case when using built-in
version of MSVCRT, not the native one.

an ideal case would be to use MSVCRT and MSVCP60 dlls comming from the 
same place.  however, it doesn't mean for me this definitely will work.

yeah, sounds like it (the protection system) will hardly going to work.  
but you will never know.  

first, try getting this pair of native dlls and set Wine to load the
MSVCRT and MSVCP60 as native.  you will see if the situation changes.
