wine can be run from the CLI with
Code:
wine "*.exe"
there are text based config files, or some packages of wine have winetools or whatever it's called.

type wine in a console then hit tab a few times to autocomplete and see what other wine ish programs you can run.

I found this into wine directory .wine/drive_c/windows/system32. There are many .exe there but no program.exe only one similar, progman.exe. Should i change the name? Any help please!

Here it is:

johnny@dhcppc1:~> wine bearshare.exe
wine: could not load L"c:\\windows\\system32\\bearshare.exe": Module not found

Should i go into the directory first with cd command?

Hi, i got it, i should place a sortcut of the program into that directory. One last question, isn't there any graphic interface to do that instead of typing commands?

you don't have to add a shortcut, you can cd to the directory and execute it, basically it's to do with paths (where the OS expects to find things).

Depending on what window manager/Desktop environment you are using, you could set it so that duble clicking on the .exe mime-type will run it using wine
