This is the second message I've read today about crashes with an unknown code page today.

Is this with Wine 1.0.1/Wine 1.1.6?

If so, can you deinstall Wine and install Wine 1.0/Wine 1.1.5 to see if this problem goes away?

This will involve creating a new area to install your programs, unfortunately.

Please run the following code after removing Wine:

mv .wine{,.backup}

And the following code after re-installing Wine with the lower version:

wine notepad

After this finishes please run:

winetricks vb4run

And then install your program.

Also, is it possible to provide your program for testing purposes?

Thank you.
