After installing vb60-runtime seperately, the game installs and runs fine beside some issues.
What does not
Beside some warnings, which pop up now and then, there is an issue, which makes the game almost unplayable: Most item images on the inventory tab aren't displayed. You can still click on the inventory spots to get a description of an item, or double-click to use the item, but not being able to see what you are carrying is very unconvenient and frustrating.
Also the font on the tabs is unreadable.
What was not tested
I didn't play the game for long via wine, because of the main issue described above.

** If you have a PCM error when you start the client, then you can disable the sound effects in options. However, if you want sounds, leave them enabled. I have no idea if sounds work or not via wine. **
