After some googling I found that the error occurs in Windows a lot when the user's registry is borked up. Can't seem to find anything about fixing it for WINE.
I'm assuming that I need to install something via winetricks, but can't figure out exactly what and don't want to just install stuff for the heck of it.
Any tips would be awesome!
