I've read through all of the documentation. Your "How to help get 
applications working" guide is nice, but not really useful. What would 
be really nice is a guide that says step by step some tests to run to 
help determine what to run. The wine documentation is good, but spread 
all over the place.I have made some headway debugging this program, I 
was at least able to get it to display the menus by using a windows 
d3drm.dll, but still no luck getting it running.
