[Wine] Microsoft Project 2003 in Wine

Hello.  I've succeeded, almost, in installing Project Standard 2003 in Wine 1.1.14.  I am running ubuntu 8.10, kernel 2.6.27-11..  Project install from the CD without any problems.  It accepted the product key and was even activated on-line from Microsoft.

However, when I either start a new project or open a *.mpp file all I see is a blank screen and a message stating "incorrect page or navigation stopped" and "Project is unable to use the page res://C:\program files\common files\microsoft shared\microsoft office project 11\1033\pjintl.dll/blank.htm to display the project guide for this project".  I then have the choice to retry or accept a default.  When I select either choice the message disappears and the "getting started" sidebar appears in Project.  When I try to open either an existing file or create a new project the same message reappears.  Selecting either retry or default gives a blank scree without the sidebar.

But, when I close Project it asks me if I want to save the file.  This make me think that Project did load the file but does not display it.  I've tried selecting Gantt chart and other views but still the blank screen.

I did go to my Windows partition and copy the "blank.htm" file and its folder, "Stationary", to Wine's c_drive\program files\common files\microsoft shared\ folder (same location as in Windows') but no change, still the blank screen.

Any suggestion will be appreciated.  TIA.
