Wine problem

Every time I try to install a .exe program with wine, a message saying:The program start.exe has encountered a serious problem[...]

I use Fedora 12, and installed wine with yum. I already did that 'wineboot' thing ...

Sorry if my english is a little difficult to understand ^^''
Thanks anyway.

After installing wine run "winecfg" in your home directory to config wine. In the directory where your .exe is run "wine myprogram.exe".
