Wine is a wrapper application for Windows executables. It simulates a Windows environment by intercepting their system calls and translating them into their equivalent Linux calls (and vice-versa), so that the program runs semi-natively.
Whether and how well any individual application runs depends entirely on what system calls it makes, and whether and how well the wine developers have duplicated those functions. So some programs will run well, some only partially, and others not at all. In this case you have partial support, but certain calls crash the program.
Start by reading the wine documentation
, and searching the winehq appdb
for your program, and see what kind of experience others have had with it.
Other than that, you can try using winecfg to play with which version of Windows it simulates, and the order in which the dll libraries are loaded, as well as whether to use wine's built-in version or native ones copied from a Windows machine. But that requires a bit of understanding of what they do.
It's possible in the end that you're just out of luck, however. In which case you might consider running Windows in a virtual machine if you really need it. Better to find a native Linux equivalent if you can.
