I added:

; Imatch Image Management
"comctl32" = "native"

which works just fine and is the same as yours. You have to install the
Common Controls from Windows System Software and download commctrl from
http://www.dll-files.com/, unzip it and put it into windows/system. ANd
note that Imatch is not very fast with Wine.
