I wish to run todolist 6.3.8 on Ubuntu 11.10.

I have installed the latest wine and winetricks. I have tried running: 
winetricks vcrun2005 
winetricks vcrun2008 
winetricks vcrun6 

Which installed all of the components.

When I went to run todolist.exe, it started fine with the "first time wizard" (asking me where to save definitions and what file to open first), and then it stopped saying

"the program todolist.exe has encountered a serious problem and needs to close. we are sorry for the inconvenience".

What can I do to make this (great) software work on ubuntu?
