[Wine] Program worked in 20050930, not in 0.9.7

I have been trying to get WinMDI (a program for reading flow cytometry data
in windows) working under wine.  WinMDI has an appdb entry of
http://appdb.winehq.org/appview.php?appId=2850 .   I had the early versions
of this program working under wine 20050930 and 20050725.  

I recently upgraded from 20050930 to 0.9.7 on my FreeBSD 6.0 box, and tried
to run the same version that worked under the earlier wine versions.  The
application no longer runs at all - it gives me the following error output:

I'm not sure what to do at this point.  I am able to run some other windows
programs, for example the notepad and windows help program that ships with
wine, as well as the pinball program that comes with windows XP.  My system
is set to dual boot between freebsd 6.0 and windows XP pro.  I have not
configured wine to use anything from windows XP (after reading the FAQ that
encourages against this).

thank you
