[Wine] powder cell

I need some help running a somewhat old windows program on wine.
I am trying to run powdercell (XRD refinement thingy), here you can find the homepage of the program (sorry it is in german): http://www.bam.de/de/service/publikationen/powder_cell.htm
The only report about this program dates from 2008, and I can't really tell how successful it was: http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=2366

Let's go to the specs. I am running wine 1.2.3 on an imac 2.7Ghz Intel Core i5. I created the directory where the program sits, so that there should be no fuss about it. There I executed 
wine pcw23

 which should install the thingy.
I immediately get this:
fixme:commdlg:GetOpenFileName16 custom templates no longer supported, using default
fixme:commdlg:GetOpenFileName16 custom hook 0x11f74ce2 no longer supported

 and a window prompting me to open a file and that is missing a lot of stuff (I have used this program on windows ages ago). Once I try to open a file (anything really) the program crashes. If it is wine or the program itself that are crashing, I don't know. It also doesn't seem to like the fact that it is 16bit program.

I appreciate any help I can get to make this program run.
