> I'm using the latest wine program. I follow the winehq 's description for installing empire total war (installing d3dx9, changing registry, placing MSVCP80.dll at system32 and winecfg).

Where did you see those instructions? There's no howto in the AppDB for any of the versions of this game. 

MSVCP80.dll does not belong in system32. If you really need it, install it with winetricks vcrun2005, which will put it in the right place. But I see nothing in the AppDB to suggest you do need it for this game. 

Exactly what registry changes did you make? 

Note there's also a known bug affecting this game. There's a patch in the bug report. http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=18490
