Maybe progress, maybe not.
Hello SLW210, Thanks for that. As per the instructions I downloaded ole2v.exe and mfc40.cab and renamed the former to lower case and made the directory "~/.cache/winetricks/mfc40/", copied the files there and then installed via the terminal with the command "winetricks mfc40" without errors.
Now have the error "MHOUTB32.OCX is not registered correctly......."
I am not sure whether this represents progress or not.
Anyone got any idea as to what this is all about?
