[Wine] Running vbscript .vbs file in an EXE

Hi, I'm new to wine, and am having a bit of trouble.
I'm trying to run an EXE installer, which starts fine, prompts me for
a few questions, and creates a few directories, but at a certain point
it tries to run a vbs file, which fails.
The attempt to run the .vbs file causes this message to appear in an
"There is no Windows program configured to open this type of file"
after which I click OK and there as another window:
"could not execute the external program check64.vbs"
with "check64.vbs" being the name of the file that is part of the installer.
after I click OK the installer exits, and there is no output at the
command line whatsoever:
bash-3.2$ wine ~/Desktop/INSTALL.EXE
I've used winetricks to install
vcrun6 (which I believe is the same as mfc42, but I thought I try and
see if it fixed the problem, with no luck)
I'm not sure if this is sufficient to run vbs files.
I have tried:
bash-3.2$ wine wscript test.vbs
which seems to partially work, but I get the error message
there is no script engine for file extension ".vbs"
and my test script doesn't do what I expect, the attempt causes this
to be printed on command line:
fixme:ole:CoInitializeSecurity (0x0,-1,0x0,0x0,0,3,0x0,0,0x0) - stub!
I believe it's a wise installer, and that it's pretty old, so I tried
running it as Windows 95 & 3.1 with no more success. I'm guessing I
need to add some entries into the registry, but as I haven't used
windows in quite a while, and never messed around with the registry
much, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
bash-3.2$ wine --version
Installed via MacPorts on Snow Leopard
