You don't give much info to go on, so I googled and found a web site
. I picked a free game at random , downloaded it and tried
installing it into a freshly created with "wineprefixcreate" .wine
The game installed without a problem (fixme:'s are not problems). When
I tried to run the game wine presented a dialog that said I needed
Mozilla ActiveX controls and offered to download & install them. The
download worked, however the install _FAILED_ .
I found a web site  with troubleshooting tips. It suggested I was
missing two dlls, MSVCP60.DLL and MSVCRT.DLL. I downloaded the zip file
 and unzipped it into ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system .
Reran the game, wine presented the same dialog about ActiveX. This time
it downloaded & installed properly. The game started, ran and played.
Score one for 0.9 wine.
