[Wine] Success story: Vixen christmas lite app

said Vixen worked with Wine, so I tried it, and sure enough,
it seems to run.  It's kind of cool to see .real net apps working
with Wine.

Here's how I tested:
$ rm -rf .wine
$ wget http://www.vixenlights.com/releases/Vixen%202.0%20Release.zip
$ wget http://kegel.com/wine/winetricks
$ sh ~/winetricks corefonts dotnet20
$ cd ~/.wine/drive_c
$ unzip ~/Vixen*Release.zip
$ cd Vixen*
$ wine Vixen.exe

It crashed the first time I ran it, and the user's recipe said
to run winecfg and select the audio tab and press Apply...
but I didn't seem to have to do that later to avoid the crash,
so your milage may vary.

(Doesn't run in mono20 on wine, though; that's
