    info and download link:

    THis solution should hold good even after updates

    I had already installed kindle with the crashing issues. I downloaded the redist pack via the link from the above wine page, clicked on it and selected the wine option for opening. it installed, I tried kindle, worked perfect.
    Thanks mate, this worked for me with Wine 1.4. Just come back to Linux with my new netbook, nice to see the community still giving great help and advice!

    Seconding this solution. It worked for me, too- on WINE 1.4 & Kindle vers 1.10.5. I've been trying to fix this problem for WEEKS, and this is the only thing that worked!! Thank you! I never would have thought of it without your post.
