CentOS/RHEL 7 and derivatives are by intention "pure" 64 bit distros, and the Wine packages in the EPEL for CentOS/RHEL 7 are pure 64 bit Wine. Most Windows apps are still 32 bit, and require 32 bit libraries and a WoW64 setup to run properly.

The CentOS/RHEL Wine packages are broken by design. Pure 64 bit Wine is not a supported configuration.

The problem has been reported to RedHat, and the response was "There is no chance" they will provide Wine packages with the necessary 32 bit parts. https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1117422

Please do not file bugs or AppDB test reports or ask for help on the forum or in IRC if you are using these packages. The RedHat bug report linked above does mention some workarounds various users have tried to install 32 bit Wine. You could also try building Wine yourself, though it is not clear whether CentOS/RHEL has 32 bit packages for all of Wine's dependencies.

Switching to a distro that properly packages Wine is also an option.
