Starting a program with the windows emulator isn't working correctly. If i create a desktop symlink, then wine bugs out not having displayed any information or graphical display material. I presume its because it works like executables that are in a zip with .dlls under windows, it needs some file or folder that is in the program directory wine is using for an application.
If I put into my terminal this, which I've used this precise input before without a problem:
metzava@metzava-desktop:~$ wine /home/metzava/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/program
my computer sends me this lovely tidbit..
wine: cannot find '/home/metzava/.wine/drive_c/program'
Does Unix not handle whitespace? The way I input the directive is exactly how it is listed on the folder name with capitols and whitespace (Program Files).
