try this

cd '/home/username/.wine/drive_c/Program Files'

there you should see installed apps

then cd to folder of the app and list contents with 'ls'

you should see a .exe file, then just run

wine myfile.exe

and you can create a shortcut on desktop or menu (in kde at least) by making an icon that executes a command like

wine '/home/username/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/myapp/myfile.exe'
