Fortunately I was able to move an up to date System32 folder into the virtual one WinE provides.

I also moves the scfa folder into linux and have all the registry setup. I do run into a problem starting scfa: here is what terminal provides----

I am not finding these particular dll's in the system32 folder, so the next outstanding question would be ---- where would they be located? Any help would be appreciated. As windows is now more borken and i will NEED to run these here - to avoid reinstall of a borken system.
