If you have issues with the fonts and text not displaying properly, you may need to change the windows version that wine uses. (Possibly to WinXP or Win98 mode).

Let me know if that helps.
running WINE ver.1.1.44, emulating WINXP

the installer runs fine, but the program will not open. it 'thinks about it' for about 20 seconds, then silently fails.
