Then I guess this is probably the problem area, since you don't want to

Looking back through my log again I notice some other areas right above 
this one that also show an uninitialized string being passed to 
CreateFileW, as well as GetFileAttributesW.

All I do is simply run the program from the terminal like you showed me 

  wine  c:\\Program\ Files\\Weathersoft\\WeatherScope.exe
