There are native Linux replacements for autoit. Use them instead. Even if autoit will work on Wine it will work within Wine only - won't affect native Linux programs.

1. Wine runs windows programs on Linux not other way around.
2. That downloads is for developer's testing only. It is intended to replace parts of windows with parts of Wine. Again not what you want.
3. It's a text editor - available as native windows and Linux application. Use Linux version on Linux and windows version on windows.
4. Documentation (http://www.winehq.org/site/documentation)
