If wine is in the CentOS repository, which I am guessing it probably is, try this:

Open Terminal and type the following:
Code:
su -
[enter your root password]
yum install wine
Once wine is installed, cd to whatever directory your .exe file is in and do this:

Code:
wine filename.exe
After that is done, you will find your program in the wine menu where the rest of your apps are.

you might want to read the instructions for YOURSELF
rather than ask us for the commands - that you might or might not understand

also wine ( just like MS Windows) will require the use of the ms tool "regedit"
you have edited the windows registry on windows -- xp,vita,7 -- before ? and you do know what "HKEY_..... is

and the cent wiki

you did install the "RPMforge" repo, didn't you

If you want to understand CentOS, go to the RED Hat web-site and look at their documentation, which is very helpful.

I think you will find Wine in the EPEL repository, not the CentOS one. On the CentOS site there's a page about repositories. That will explain how to enable the EPEL and RPMfusion repositories, and how to use the priority plugin to ensure that they don't harm your installation.

Just take it one step at a time, and don't panic!

@ John. How do you get so many reputation points when you give so many silly (and often rather rude) answers? I've never found the need to use regedit with Wine, and I haven't the foggiest idea what HKEY means. Of course, I've only been using Wine regularly since 2005...
