You can get past that error by installing mdac28 with winetricks before running the installer. There's already a bug report for that problem, http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=13536 .

Unfortunately, the app still won't start up, now complaining about being unable to find C:\windows\temp\twe-temporaryD2D2.twe (and that file doesn't exist). I noticed some ole errors in the console and tried dcom98, but that didn't help.

That's as far as I can go with it at my admittedly limited skill level. If you can find a copy of the file that it's looking for (maybe in a Windows install), you could try copying it to Wine's C:\windows\temp directory and see if that's enough to satisfy the app.
