Did you complete the installation?
You may need to finish with
sudo apt-get install --winerecommends [blahblahblah] before you're able to open applications

Also, Wine is not an emulator. It just translates the code from windows to linux.
Thus, it will not "launch," but it will launch applications ending in .exe or .msi

The winehq packages do not come with any desktop integration files.
It's generally recommended to control Wine using the terminal.
See: Wine User's Guide: 3 Using Wine.

If you are really missing the shiny icons, for Wine... :( :shock:
I have a Linux-distribution agnostic archive of Wine desktop integration files on Github. 8)
See: Github: bobwya / wine-desktop-common.
