Possibly a WINE resource issue

Currently running MetaTrade 4 on Bionic Beaver through WINE.
Seems to run okay. Gets a little chunky at times when I'm pushing it a bit. I'll post my basic hardware specs at the bottom, but they shouldn't be the issue. I suppose WINE is bottlenecking my performance somehow; more specifically:
I'm trying to run a plugin for MT4 called Soft4FX. The plugin seems to boot up fine, but once I actually ask it to start doing something (likely resource intensive), it locks up within about 5-10 seconds. Ubuntu keeps running fine, but it freezes my application in WINE.
The fact that Ubuntu keeps running smooth, but this program starts locking up seems to suggest to me that the plugin/application is demanding too much ram/vram/etc for WINE to tolerate and it's causing it to lock up. Also it could because I'm missing some bit like DirectX9 or w/e (I'm still really new to Ubuntu and I'm even newer to WINE). Or maybe it's some type of Kernal issue or something--this all isn't my area of expertise, I'm pretty new on Linux.
I know just enough about this stuff to get myself in trouble, basically, so if you have some good ideas why this is happening, I'd love to hear from you. I also might need you to be very specific with your reply, you probably shouldn't assume that I know anything. I'm very convinced that this isn't an issue with MT4 or Soft4FX, but a WINE issue. I am also convinced that it's likely something very small, but a matter of isolating what it is.
Thanks in advance!
Likely relevant hardware specs (mainly to confirm that there's not a hardware limitation, I assume)
i7 4790k
16gb RAM
Nvidia 1080ti
running on a solids state.

Edit:
If it helps, these are the requirements listed on the Soft4FX website (the plugin that's crashing everything)

Requirements


Second Edit:
I managed to get net framework installed (I think) and it didn't really seem to change anything. Having the same issues. I reinstalled wine also and I believe I have the most up to date version currently. Also no noticeable effects. Still thinking there's some resource limit being hit.

If you guys could post other things that you've found useful too, that'd be great.

Brokerages:
There are many factors to consider when choosing a brokerage. Regulations typically force US traders to only trade at US brokerages, while international traders have more choice. After considering location you need to consider how much capital you will start trading with as many have minimum deposit levels. Once you’ve narrowed that down you can compared spreads and execution. ECN brokers execute your orders straight through to their liquidity providers, while market maker brokers may pair up your trades with other clients. Market maker brokers typically will partially hedge your positions on the interbank market. Many consider this to be a conflict of interest and prefer to trade at an ECN broker who would have an active motive to see you succeed. Lastly, brokers run inherently risky business models so it is important to consider the risk of bankruptcy.

FAQ:
I need to exchange money, how do I do it?
This isn’t what this sub is for. Your best bet is using your bank or an online exchange service. Be prepared to pay a hefty fee.
I have money in one currency and need to exchange it into another sometime in the future, should I wait?
Don’t ask us this. We speculate intraday in FX and shouldn’t be relied on to tell you what’s best for you. Exchange the money when you need it.
I have an FX account, should I start trading demo or live?
This is highly debatable. You should definitely demo trade until you have mastered how to use the trading platform on desktop and mobile. After that it’s up to you. Many think that the psychology of trading live vs demo trading is massively different. So it may pay to learn to trade live. Just be warned that most FX traders lose almost their entire first account so start with a low affordable balance.
What’s money management?
Money management is a form of risk management and is arguably the most important aspect of your trading when it comes to long term survival. You should always enter trades with a stop loss - the distance of the stop allows you to calculate how large of a percent of your account balance will be lost if your trade stops out. You can run a monte carlo simulation to figure out the risk of having a number of trades go against you in a row to drain your account. The general rule is that you should only risk losing 1-4% of your account per trade entered.
More on this here: www.investopedia.com/articles/forex/06/fxmoneymgmt.asp[35]
www.swing-trade-stocks.com/money-management.html[36]
What about automated trading?
Retail FX traders have been known to program “Expert Advisors” (EAs) to automate trading. It’s generally advisable to stay away from that until you’re very experienced. Never buy an EA from a developer because the vast majority of them are scams.
What indicators are best?
That’s up to you to test and find out. Many in this forum dislike oscillating indicators since they fail to capture the essence of what moves price. With experience you will discover what works best for you. In my experience indicators that are most popular with professional traders are those that provide trading “levels” such as pivot points, fibonacci, moving averages, trendlines, etc.
What timeframe should I trade?
Price action can vary in different timeframes. In longer term timeframes the price action and fundamentals are much more clear. Unfortunately it would take a very long time to figure out whether or not what you’re doing is successful on longer timeframes. In shorter timeframes you can often tell very quickly if what you’re doing is profitable. Unfortunately there’s a lot more “noise” on these levels which can prove deceptive for those trying to learn. Therefore the best bet is to use a multi-timeframe analysis, working from top-down to come up with trades.
Should I trade using fundamental analysis (FA) of technical analysis (TA)?
This is a long standing argument in these forums and elsewhere. I’ll settle it here - you should have an understanding of both. Yes there are traders who blindly ignore one of the other but a truly well rounded trader should understand and implement both into the analysis. The market is driven in the longer term through FA. But TA is necessary to give traders a place to enter and exit trades from a psychological risk/reward standpoint.
I’ve heard trading Binary Options is an easy way to make money?
The general advice is to stay away from binaries. The structure of binary options is so that when you lose the broker wins. This incentive has created a very scammy industry where there are few legitimate binary options brokers. In addition in order to be profitable in binaries you have to win 55-65% of the time. That’s a much higher premium over spot FX.
Am I actually exchanging currencies?
Yes and no. Your broker handles spot FX is currency pairs. Although they make an exchange at the settlement date they treat your position in your account as a virtual currency pair. Think of it like a contract where you can only buy or sell it as a pair. In this sense you are always long one currency while short another. You are merely speculating that one currency will appreciate or depreciate vs another.
Why didn't my order fill?
Even if price appears to cross over a line on your chart it does not guarantee a fill. Different charting platforms chart different prices - some chart the bid price, some the ask price and some the midpoint price. To fill a limit order price needs to cross your limit's price plus the spread at the time that it is crossing. If it does not equal or exceed the spread then it will not fill. Be wary that in general spreads are not fixed. So what may fill at one time may not at another.
