Error trying to play Tibia with Wine

I have Mandrake 10.1 and Wine, and i have installed Tibia 7.4.
When I installed it, i checked launch tibia after instalation. It ran Tibia perfectly.
When i clicked in the shortcut the installer created, it said " cannot open tibia.dat, reinstall tibia again".
What can i do to solve that problem?

You can create a script that does a cd (change directory) to the directory where the executable is located and runs the *.exe,...

cd "/home/UserName/FakeWindowsDrive/Program Files/ProgramDirectory/"
wine "tibia.exe"
Then you can name the script with a period in front of it (to make it "hidden"). From there, create an icon on your desktop that invokes the script, setting the properties to run the script with bash;
bash .ScriptName
Give it an icon of your choice (including the one that the installer created,... usually located in /.thumnails/Large/ (make a copy of it and put it in the directory with the program, renaming it to ProgramName.png... ).

Try that...
