This sounds rather like illegal, anti-competitive behaviour to me; since in 
effect, they are artificially forcing you to use one particular supplier's 
product  (Microsoft Windows)  over another  (WINE on any compatible OS; the 
published Source Code of WINE describes the API fully).

Your MEP might well be interested to know about this, if you can explain it in 
a way that makes sense to non-computer-literate people.
