MyInfo running on Wine

I'm trying to get MyInfo to work on Linux Mint using Wine. I know this has been mentioned in the past but I don't think anyone has posted a successful solution.

I'm using MyInfo 6.38 (still). I've paid for v8 to support the project but 6.38 still works well for me.

Using Wine 8.0.0 stable I'm very near to a working program. No crashes but a few glitches:
- Several times (startup, shutdown and changing Options) I get a MyInfo message box that says "Not implemented"
- Using Go To Document (Ctrl-G) I can see the right hand column of text but the left hand text column is all blank

I've tried using native gdiplus.dll in Wine. That doesn't seem to help.

Crossover database says that MyInfo works stably with MyInfo 6, so I'm sure I should be able to make it work with Wine. I've tried looking at all the dlls that get loaded but there are so many, I'm at a loss where to start. I suspect that making some of those as native may help, but I don't know where to start.

Does anyone have any suggestions. Thanks so much for any help...
