    I don't know the answer to your question (sorry!) but I do have some ancillary advice. I had tons of misery trying to run IE games in Wineskin for a few months. Eventually, I set up a Windows install in VirtualBox; now I run BG, IWD, PS:T etc. in fullscreen, inside a windowed VirtualBox. (You can trap the mouse inside the VirtualBox window when you need to - I found mousing at the screen edges to scroll the landscape to be a big problem with Wineskin.) Updating isn't a problem because the full Windows OS is running.

    You need a Windows license (I had an old XP license gathering dust) but VirtualBox is free. If you can get an old Win license this is a great way to play these games.

    Thank you @subtledoctor for your answer. I think there's no way to update a wineskin version of BG:EE. Probably virtualisation (or buy a Mac version of course!) is the only way to use an upgradeable BE:EE Windows version.
