Profili is airplane wing profile software that will generate G-code for a CNC router.  When I try to get it to run under WIne it gives me this error and quits... "Impossible to open database C:\windows\profiles\superbug\My Documents\Profilipro\Libraries\ProfiliProNoPolar.mdb."

I searched the archives and tried the commands winetricks jet40 and winetricks mdac28 in a terminal window before running but still nogo.  The archive lists a winetrick mdac25 but that just brings up an error when ran in the terminal.

Is the file located on your UNIX drive or did you link this back to a file on an NTFS partition in a 'real Windows' installation?
