Wine problem

I seem to have a problem in wine that I cannot fix. Ive tried reinstalling wine to no avail. Whenever I try to open winecfg, this comes up

Could not load 'KEYBOARD.DLL' required by 'COMMCTRL', error=21
err:thunk:_loadthunk (commctrl.dll, Cctl1632_ThunkData16, comctl32.dll): Unable to load 'commctrl.dll', error 2
err:module:LdrInitializeThunk "comctl32.dll" failed to initialize, aborting
err:module:LdrInitializeThunk Main exe initialization for L"C:\\windows\\winecfg.exe" failed, status c0000142

I checked in the system folders of the fake windows drive and Keyboard.dll and commctrl exist. Any ideas on how to fix this?

winetools worked 99.9% of the time for me and very easy. You might consider checking that out
