The support for a "real" Windows registry was dropped in Wine recently.


That means that if program requires registry entries, and I suspect that 
Dreamweaver and Fireworks do, then they will probably need to be 
installed from within Wine. Solitaire and notepad do not require 
registry entries, so they are unaffected.

So I would suggest trying a new Wine C: drive and installing the apps 
there, or reverting to an older version of Wine. That said, I have no 
idea whether the apps actually will work in Wine.
