[Wine]Still Newbie: 16 bit application in wine?

I am getting the hang of it.  Updated wine to 20041201 and used also 
winetools. It's going better with oddities.  I made a fresh installation with 
winetools and now Quicken is behaving well (many thanks for the suggestions), 
but the next program sticks.

Using the installer of the next program (DrawingBoard) works fine, but when 
starting wine "drawingboard", the created window freezes immediately and 
sticks to my screen; very awkward to kill even.  Is this because drawingboard 
is a 16-bit old windows application or do I need to make some special measures 
for that?  Get some special DLL's?
