If you have a legal copy of XP you can install it inside virtualbox
(install virtualbox-ose) and run XP inside your Debian and then close
it if you are not using it.

sudo apt-get install virtualbox-ose

You can then use module-assistand (m-a) to build and install your
virtualbox-ose-modules.

Have you tried debugging it in wine at all? Wine is really your best
shot short of installing Windows in a Virtualbox (debian package
virtualbox-ose).
