In the future don't waste time and bandwidth by posting videos of a busy cursor that then stops. The people who regularly help out here are all literate.

What you do need to post is what Wine version you are using; if it's not the latest development release (currently 1.3.26), upgrade and try again. If the problem still happens in the latest development release, run the app from a terminal and post whatever messages appear. If the console output is long, use a site like pastebin and post a link here. http://wiki.winehq.org/FAQ#run_from_terminal
