WinForms does not need Wine to work on Win32 :-)
May be you set SFW = 1 before running application ?
If so you don't need to do it. You will get a few
warnings about missing libxxx.dll.so, but that's ok.
You also need the latest runtime from CVS, there were
some fixed made regarding calling conventions
