First off, why are you dong Applications / Add application?
FYI, that's not how you install applications (though I can see
why you might think it were).

The Wine C: drive is never the same as your Window C: drive.

To run applications under Wine, you have to install them under Wine;
you can't run the apps you already have installed on Windows.

You *can* access the data files from your Windows drive as long
as it's mounted.  By default, Wine uses  Z: to refer to the Linux
filesystem, so if your windows drive is mounted is /media/foobar,
browse to Z:\media\foobar.

Does that help?
