Additional Comments

Tried the freely available application also on C*dega => same result. If someone needs a working PC Emulator i would suggest to get VMWare Server for Linux until VirtualPC 2004 and VirtualPC 2007 (will be released free also) work correctly. VMWare Server is free now and works like a charm on Linux.

HowTo / Notes

Program requires MSXML6 to start. ( mfc42.dll )
Due to Wine's design, this program cannot work because it requires a low-level kernel Windows driver (similar to VirtualBox's r0 (ring 0) driver) to run. 
Program Warns about this.
