wine errors

I downloaded and installed codeweavers wine and that process went great. I ran winesetup and it recognized everything for the .wine/config file. I'm trying to install and run movie magic screenwriter on mandrake 9. I get this error: Shrinker.err
f:/ data/setup-32.exe (3.4) 01/06/03 16:01:40 - Pager initialication error 2

Any ideas or should I just stick with my other windows machine? This is the only reason why i have windows around, so it would be great if I could get this working. Thanks for the help.

Most people have Windows around just for one or maybe two programs. I have it to test .NET stuff for But to be honest, I've never managed to get any large applications to run MS Office 2000 and above applications or any large Windows 2000 programs apart from notepad.exe - don't hold out for the wine idea too much - it's a work in progress with a shifting target.

I'm not holding out for wine. I was just wondering if there was a fix for this kind of error. If not, I'll keep waiting and trying more stuff. If so, it would be really cool to see it work. Thanks.
