Well, I know. Thus I added 


to PATH in system.reg, since it's needed to find ODAPI.DLL and PD?SRV.DLL   These are the same values as used on my Win98 system where the program still resides and works (slow and ugly).

With that entry, Paradox starts under wine and presents some of its dialog boxes to me ("Your working/private directory is not valid [OK]")  ...

==> Aaah. Good hint!  Maybe I missed to set these directories in system.reg.  But I would not expect a crash on that.  It's a lack within 
the application if these directories are undefined, not in the system...!?!  
But, I will find it out by setting working parameters for the directories.

Thank you.
