What is the application you are trying to run?

An old version of a Dutch bookkeeping application aimed at clubs called Davilex Club. I believe it's a 16-bit application. They never upgraded it because newer versions requires Windows SBS with Microsoft SQL Server (which they don't have) and converting the data files to the format of the newer version isn't even free (!). Right now they are storing the data on a Samba share on a Linux fileserver. The app works and they know it inside out. People have been looking into migrating to another application (things like GnuCash) for quite some time, but they haven't found a suitable replacement.

A 16-bit app?  Hmm...that's the Windows 3.1 API.  WINE has had great support for that since the 1990's, and in fact, that was WINE's original API target before they started working on Win32.
