Did you do what I asked?  Apparently not.  I wanted you to run the programs from a terminal session and provide a log file back to us so we could provide further assistance.  Windows does this naturally, and this is a 'to do' project for Wine.  However, the process is described in the Wine FAQ on how to run a program in a terminal session and to produce a log file.  Upload the log file to a site like pastebin.com and then provide us with the URL.

Also, PLEASE INSTALL TO A FRESH WINE PREFIX.  There are many, many changes between Wine 1.0.1 and 1.2-rc2 that cause things to break if you attempt to use an old wine prefix with the new wine (sort of what happens when you put new wine in an old wineskin, it bursts, believe me.)

Please do run the programs and create log files so we can look at them.

Thank you.
