If alsan wants to keep the old Wine prefix for some reason:

cd $HOME
mv .wine{,.backup}

There are issues with using Mono vice using .NET, especially with SQL
connections.  I would recommend the following:

Create a new Wine Prefix
Install .NET 2.0 using winetricks
Install .NET 3.0 using winetricks
Install mdac2.8 and jet4.0 using winetricks
Install program...

alsan may also need to install the ability to configure DSN
connections.  That is discussed in another forum thread.
