What version of wine are you running? type wine --version at a console

also I have had the invalid address problem, with several windows programs
on wine 1.18 & 1.19 so I installed 1.17 and it works fine again.

as far as I know PC-BSD has not upgraded the wine PBI past 1.17

I know from reading the FreeBSD mailing lists that a Fix has been found
the "invalid address" problem appears to be FreeBSD specific.

if you happen to use the ports system instead of PBI's like I do.

just portsnap fetch update your ports tree, then go to /usr/ports/emulators/wine
change the version 1.19 to 1.17 in the Makefile, then
make deinstall clean && make makesum && make install clean

your wine programs will magically work again.
