I'm trying to run an application called "Sprakknep" 
(http://www.softogram.se/sprakknep.html), which uses audio output. The 
application fails with a dialog box saying:

"The specified device is not open or is not recognized by MCI"

When running with WINEDEBUG=+mci, I get:

trace:mci:mciSendStringW (L"open \"C:\\Program Files\\Spr\00e5kknep\\tal\\allm hem ord\\aho6.mp3\" alias Editor1", (nil), 0, 0x20036)
trace:mci:MCI_LoadMciDriver wDevID=0001
fixme:mci:MCI_LoadMciDriver Couldn't load driver for type L"MPEGVIDEO".
If you don't have a windows installation accessible from Wine,
you perhaps forgot to create a [mci] section in system.ini

Any ideas?
