Wine and Epson R200

I'm a newbie to Wine, I've installed Wine, did the base setup and saved the Wine directory. I'm trying to install the software for my Epson R200 CD printer. (Need the software to run to actually print on CD's - printer prints fine on paper, no problem there) If I try and install through the Run Command the setup starts through the install shield but then gives me the following error:

Error: 2147467259

When I do the setup through a terminal window I still get the above error on the desktop and the following errors in the terminal.

fixme:win:SetWindowTextA cannot set text "InstallShield Wizard" of other process window (nil)
fixme:shell:Stream_WriteLocationInfo writing empty location info
fixme:shell:SHELL32_DllCanUnloadNow (void): stub
fixme:dialog:MSGBOX_OnInit task modal msgbox ! Not modal yet.

The same happens when I try to install other Windows based software.

Do I need change some Wine settings or do I have to setup something else first?
Did I miss something?

It is commonly known wine has issues with the Windows-install format.

So, the best thing to do, is, if you have a native Windows partition, start Windows, install the software, and then use wine (simplest, but need native windows).

If you've no native Windows, you could try look at WineTools, which is an effort to try Windows programs:
Wine Tools - WineTools is a menu driven installer for installing Windows programs. This software lets you install the following Windows software: DCOM98, IE6, Windows Core Fonts, Windows System Software, Office & Office Viewer, Adobe Photoshop 7, Illustrator 9 and many other programs.
