I found alone how to do it :
1-Make a fresh install of your ORIGINAL game The Witcher with wine.
2-Download all needed files from The Witcher Website, this mean :
"TWEE_Upgrade.exe" (a ~900mb patch file)
"TWEE_adventure_Side_Effects.exe" (optional bonus quest)
"TWEE_adventure_The_Price_of_Neutrality.exe" (optional bonus quest)
3-Find yourself witcher.v126.96.36.1992.nodvd.rar and replace the exe of the game with the one in this archive.
4-Now double click on "TWEE_Upgrade.exe" and install the update. You'll notice that it bypassed the registration message.
5-Replace the game exe with a working NO-DVD to bypass the protection requirement (remenber it curently DO NOT WORK with wine, see bug report on the game page)
6-Enjoy the Enhanced Edition of the witcher.
Let's hope Wine dev will soon find a way to make the game protection working so there wil be no need of those crap No-DVD files anymore...
