Archive manager error when trying to run .exe file

I'm trying to run a setup.exe file off an ISO disk I burned. I'm running openSUSE 12.2. I've installed Wine, dosbox, and dosemu (wasn't sure which one I needed), but I still get the following error when I try to run setup.exe:

Archive: /media/UDF Volume/setup.exe
[/media/UDF Volume/setup.exe]
End-of-central-directory signature not found. Either this file is not
a zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive. In the
latter case the central directory and zipfile comment will be found on
the last disk(s) of this archive.
note: /media/UDF Volume/setup.exe may be a plain executable, not an archive
zipinfo: cannot find zipfile directory in one of /media/UDF Volume/setup.exe or
/media/UDF Volume/, and cannot find /media/UDF Volume/setup.exe.ZIP, period.

Is the problem that there is a space in "UDF Volume"? If so, how can I get around that? That's just what comes up when I load the ISO disk.

Any explanation and/or solution would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Chris

Your system probably associates .exe files with the unzip command. You can either right-click the .exe file in your GUI and select something like "Open With" or you can use the command line and type "wine setup.exe" in the directory it resides in.

the space in the name ?????
from the gui -- not an issue
from the terminal ????
it might ? or might not

Also are you 100 % sure that this UNKNOWN "setup.exe" IS supported in wine"????
( I LOATH the proverbial "setup.exe" almost every bloody MS installer is called that )

WHAT is this "setup.exe" installing in wine??????
Not everything is supported
