You're using an old version of wine.
Major improvemnts with regard to IS have been achieved in the last months.

    Robert> problem 2) The App uses a Rainbow Technologies hardware lock.

Read in the archives what was said about Wine being a users space program,
unable to run custom windows kernel space drives.

There are some parts of advapi (involved in  installing and running these
drives) not fully implemented.

Find small downloadable application showing that error, and post a pointer
to those applications, a receipt how to reproduce the error and an good
error report. Perhaps somebody picks up the problem. Look also in the bug
data base.
