I tried to install Joost 0.12.0 on Wine 0.44. First install failed because Joost demands XP and Wine defaults to 2000. I changed that using winecfg. Then Joost seems to be installed, it were added to the wine desktop menu.
What does not
If run directly from menu gives "Error: couldn't parse application.ini."
If run from command line "wine xulrunner/tvprunner.exe application.ini" results in an "Runtime Error:
R6031 - Attempt to initialize the CRT more than once. This indicates a
bug in your application."
What was not tested
I did not try to apply any patches to wine.
Maintainer: won't start with patches needed to run 0.10.4 (RegisterRawInputDevices / GetTextExtentExPointI not implemented)

2013-05-04 Admin note: the instructions below are very old and may not be applicable to current Wine.
This is only intended for people who know how to apply patches and how to compile from source
Currently you need to apply the following patches on top of wine 0.9.41:
ntdll: NtAreMappedFilesTheSame semi stub
ntdll: call NtAreMappedFilesTheSame to guard against duplicated loading of the same dll
dsound: zero out parameters even in case of a error (this might not be needed for newer versions of joost)
Select a virtual desktop with the size of 800x600, else the picture is shifted to the bottom.
Cd into the Joost directory then run wine xulrunner/tvprunner.exe application.ini
You won't be able to exit the client cleanly as the icon in the notification area does not seem to react to mouse clicks when in virtual desktop mode,
so you need to enter you account name and password every time running joost.
Tested with patches applied to git version wine-0.9.41-63-g96937e0 (17.07.2007)
