[Wine] A visual basic 6 program using html help

I am trying to get a program that I wrote working on Ubunutu Feisty
using wine.  My program is written in Microsoft Visual Basic 6 and uses
HTML help to deliver its help messages.  So far everything work fine
except the HTML help.  When the user clicks on a control that is
intended to bring up the help browser, nothing happens.  In the visual
basic program the call is something like this:

HTMLHelp hWnd, SetHelpStrings(intHelpFile), HH_HELP_CONTEXT,

This works fine under Windows, but in wine, nothing is happening.  No
error message at all.

I am very new at trying to get something going under wine.  Any ideas or
pointers would be appreciated.
