In that thread I mention the errors I found with the following tests:

- Clean wine + application: crash after start
- Clean wine + application + mdac28: fails with a "type mismatch" after connecting to DB
- Clean wine + application + mdac28 + mfc42 + oleaut32(native): I can connect to DB. Arrows in the form mentioned in this thread are missing, and the screen/form mentioned in the other thread still crashes...

All the messages seen are quoted in the thread for each test.
