I don't recommend running development versions of software in production use.  It would be much better to recommend using Wine 1.0.1 and if that does not work, recommend using 1.1.6 with the warning that this is a development version and should not be used for production level work

A bug needs to be filed if this still exists with Wine 1.0.1 or Wine 1.1.6.

Please attach the terminal output as a file rather than pasting it in the original bug report.

You may also have to recreate the .wine directory using the following:

code run in a terminal or console session after upgrading Wine:

mv .wine{,.backup}
wine notepad
cd <directory of program installer>

Run program to see if error recurrs
