Not everything works under Wine, it seems to still require some specific patches:

If a howto says you need less than two months old patches to run the thing, the odds are rather high that it's correct.
If you can't get those instructions to work, you'll have to wait for someone to come up with a script to install everything more simply.
Otherwise, the very same page lists your other options.

Did you :
-use wine 1.5.18 ?
-installed silverlight VERSION 4
-use FIREFOX not IE

Avoid the Gates of Hell. Use
Linux.
