VBRUN300.DLL problem with Wine application under Linux

(Kubuntu 10.10 with Wine 1.3.10)

I have installed a Windows program under Wine, but it wasn't working. When I run the EXE from console, I got a message that VBRUN300.DLL is missing.

First thing to do here is to download winetricks. The complete guide is available on http://wiki.winehq.org/winetricks. The complete list of available Windows libraries is shown under Options. It includes  vb3run - I have tried with lots of libraries, but I think that only this one is necessary to get VBRUN300.DLL. So:

  • download winetricks to your home folder with wget http://www.kegel.com/wine/winetricks,
  • then, download the library with sh winetricks vb3run.
After this, I still couldn't start my program. I did have the dll file (named Vbrun300.dll), so I made link to it in folder where is the EXE file of mine program (the link is named with all capital leters). After starting the program again, in console I got an error that some other files are missing (THREED.VBX and MCI.VBX). After making similar links to these files, the program worked.

What app is this? If I can find a
downloadable app that needs vbrun300.dll,
maybe I could fix winetricks so you
wouldn't need those symlinks.

The application looks like any other home-made application. It's just a sample of test for driver's licence in Serbia. I suppose that the linking of libraries in the VB application is done wrong way.
I can send you the installation if you want (all in Serbian).
