I might be completely wrong, but here goes...

That looks a lot like a driver, maybe this one:

Drivers would not work under Wine.

IO Ports should NEVER be accessed directly on a multi-tasking
operating system. (If direct access takes place, multiple application
can access the port simultaneously, leading to crashes in the best
case...) If it runs under a Windows NT as a non-administrator user,
this is not the issue...

You might be able to bypass it by using a wrapper that sets up IO
permissions using http://linux.die.net/man/2/ioperm and then starts
the Wine program.. (It would probably need to run as root) Not sure if
that would be able to bypass driver issues...

VXD drivers won't work, try a non Win9x mode...

Or the parallel port only works if it is access by the proper
interfaces, not directly by an application doing stuff that only the
kernel should be doing...
