You dumped your Terminal output withou code tags, and don’t explain what you were trying to do.
The example says “programs.exe” that does not mean run

Code: Select all

wine program.exe
The above would try to load “program.exe” from C:\Windowz\system32\ but as it says it can’t find that as it doesn’t exist.

Code: Select all

wine explorer
The above will launch wines version of Windows file explorer.

Code: Select all

wine control
The above would launch the wine version of Windows Control panel.

Code: Select all

wine winecfg
The above launches the wine configuration utility

These are some basic tools you can use, if your not sure the path of your installer/game etc you can use the explorer example and navigate to where the install is then run it
