Problem with missing Windows class in wine - Fedora 12

I am having a problem trying to install KindleForPc with wine in Fedora 12. Wine installs and runs but is missing a class needed by Kindle. Notepad, regedit, etc run but there is a problem when I run the Kindle Installer.

Attempting to install Kindle I run
wine KindleForPc-installer.exe
it runs to completion – two windows appears – they have a “windows” look, as it intiializes.
Then it returns to the command line prompt.
Shortly after it returns to the command line I get a series of error messages. Perhaps the installer finishes and then tries to start Kindle.
I have typed their essence below:
fixme:system:SetProcessDPIAware stub!
class {6e4feb12-510a-4d40-9304-1da10ae9147c} not registered
no class server could be created for context 0x17
Kindle does not show up in the configuration utility and when I try to run it from the command line it complains that some classes are not registered.

My understanding is that yum has a list of the component packages required by wine, and the person who prepared the list thought it had loaded all that was needed for wine, but it did not include the package that has the classes that I need. On the web there are a number of postings that tell how well Kindle works under Linux, and none of them deals with doing anything more than installing wine. I assume that in those cases the install procedure loaded the classes I need. My hope is that someone with more knowledge than I can give me a pointer on how to proceed.

While I appreciate any suggestion that deals with solving this, I would request that you hold off responding that you know of a better “reader”, since it gives the impression that I've received help, and the help that would be useful to me involves getting Kindle working.

I posted a less detailed version of this query a few days ago. I hope I am not breaking a rule by posting a more complete description.

The latest version (version 1.2) Kindle for PC is not compatable with wine according to the Wine HQ App DB. However it shows that the beta will run if you can get your hands on that..

Bret - thank you so much - Dick

I followed the link - got Kindle running - it picked up my books

It has some errors that keep it from completing the instalation.

Result is that I need to reinstall it every time I use it, but it has my books stored away - minor minor inconvenience

I am one happy camper

Again - thanks so much
