If it is an .exe file, and you run this in a terminal.:

Code:

Code:
wine PROGRAM [ARGUMENTS...]
You have successfully attempted to execute the program.

Now, if it doesn't run, how can we help you if you don't even tell us what the program you are trying to run is? Each program runs differently in WINE, some work and some don't. You can tell us what you are trying to run, and we might have a few suggestions for you.

Another thing you can do is run the .exe in a 'verbose-like' mode, so it will tell you probably what is going wrong. Just run it in a terminal:

Code:

Code:
WINEDEBUG=warn+all wine PROGRAM.exe
So as Ent said... more info please.
