[Wine] Switched distros, now my applications don't work.

I had previously installed an MMORPG (Champions Online) and Internet Explorer 8 on Ubuntu 11.04 using Wine 1.2 and they both worked fine. When I upgraded to 11.10 I lost sound in the game and when I checked it had been upgraded to 1.3, so I switched back to 1.2 and the problem was resolved.

I recently changed to Xubuntu 11.10 (being unable to move the Unity launcher bar was incredibly annoying), under the impression that with the exception of the dsktop environment that Xubuntu is exactly the same as Ubuntu.

Now neither work, Internet Explorer will open but will be forced to close due to an error within second, and the game's launcher opens to white screen with "Loading, please wait... on it and stays like that.

Is there anything I can do to fix this, or will I have to go back to Ubuntu?
