Fedora 12 x64 and Wine 1.1.38

I'm running Fedora 12 64 bit and Wine 1.1.38 from the repositories. Any time I try to run a Windows .exe I get an error message saying that "Start.exe" has encountered a serious problem and needs to close. It doesn't matter what the executable is, I've tried 2 or 3 different small files which I have seen work with different computers and versions of wine.

Edit: SOLVED - It's something about the context menu option that wine installed. When I do "wine program.exe" from the command line it works fine. Weird.

If wine is installed correctly you don't need a context menu, you just click the program.
