[Wine] Can't get JRE 1.6U18 to run

I have installed WINE 1.1.32 on fedora 12 and I am trying to get Sun Java JRE running but have a few issues:

If I pick up the JRE installer .EXE file, it fails to install and this seems to be down to a heap space allocation error. I have found a few posts around the Internet about this but nothing gets me towards a fix.

What I am actually trying to do is run a jnlp installer package and if I do this manually with "wine java package.jnlp" I get:

fixme:actctx:parse_depend_manifests Could not find dependent assembly L"Microsoft.Windows.Common-Controls" (

I have used winetricks to install some MS components, including 'Common controls' but without much success. 

Unfortunately, the developers of the java app have made it very Windows-centric (eg: It checks values in the Registry) and so running it natively on Linux is not going to work.

Any ideas or hints? This is my first encounter with WINE so be gentle on me!
