Getting the ihe installer to work helps ensuring that problems running
the application is due to Wine, not due to the lack of an installer
being used...

When I got exposed to integrated circitry, that wasn't possible any more, so you just dealt with behavour of function.  In fact, you often had to rely on spare parts and moving things around to figure out just where the problem was.

You would also know that you need to ensure that the inputs are fine
if the ouputs are giving you problems...

There's an AppDb page for it? Linking to it might have helped...

I extracted the self extractor of the version I downloaded. It seem to
also contain dongle drivers, which won't work under Wine. (at least
not easily...)

If you really want to run it without installing it, try installing it
under something like Altiris SVS Personal under Windows, which records
everything the installer does and allow you to see which registry
entries it created (and possibly export them for import in Wine
regedit). See this: http://www.svsdownloads.com/ (You want to run it
under Windows, to check what the installer does, not under Wine)
Unfortunately, there is no easy way to import a SVS package under
Wine, which would have allowed for easy testing of applications with
installer problems under Wine.
