First notice, that sometimes programs in wine seem to hang. Give them
five minutes before you give it up! For your program you should cage it
into a window by adding an appropriate section to your config:

"Desktop" = "800x600"
"Managed" = "N"

You have to replace drawboard.exe to the right name of your program. You
can try with "Managed" = "Y" also.

Then start your application and look whether it is usable now. Waht do
you get on the console you started the program from?

"Never touch a running system! Never run a touching system?
          Never run a touchy system!!!"
