It may be something that the program requires from Windows that WINE 
can't provide. I've found a few that do pretty much the same thing your 
talking about. It usually doesn't matter to much because I keep a 
Windows machine for those things that I can't do in Linux.

WINE today does a _MUCH_ better job than it did just a couple years ago 
so in time...........
