[Wine] problem starting Visual dBASEv 5.7

I'm running Debian/Wheezey (testing) which uses the rather old Wine v1.0.1. This is on an AMD64 machine. I was able to install Borland's Visual dBASE without any problems but when I start it, or any application developed with it, I get an error message in an Alert box on top of the startup splash screen that reads:
Error: Printer error.
When I click OK, the application exits.

The command line and terminal output is:

wine "c:\visualdb\bin\dbasewin.exe"
fixme:mixer:ALSA_MixerInit No master control found on HDA ATI HDMI, disabling mixer
fixme:toolhelp:InterruptRegister16 (0000, 0x197700a8), stub.
fixme:int31:DOSVM_Int31Handler Real mode segment (1d87) to descriptor: no longer supported
fixme:wnet:WNetGetUser16 (0x1, 0x3cf646, 0x3cf74a): stub
fixme:int31:DOSVM_FreeRMCB callback address: 1001:0000

Any ideas on how to get around this issue?
