You need to extract the ZIP file first, Try you favourite archive
program, or unzip. (Unzip might need to be installed...)
mohag at mohagpc ~/billiardo $ unzip biliardo.zip
Then ou should run cabextract on setup.exe:
mohag at mohagpc ~/billiardo $ cabextract setup.exe
Extracting cabinet: setup.exe
<snip list of files>
All done, no errors.
You can then try to run it:
mohag at mohagpc ~/billiardo $ cd files/App/0/
mohag at mohagpc ~/billiardo/files/App/0 $ wine Biliardo.exe
It seems to run fine, except for some mouse weirdness... (Mouse hit
imaginary barrier at a few places on the screen and need to be moved
back first before being able to move past that line... I experienced
similar weirdness in a few other games...)
You might also be able to run the DOS version under Dosbox, although
DOSBox is slow compared to Wine...

Run it from the command-line with more WINEDEBUG settings set...
If you want to a file, use output redirection.
(look at the section about Bourne shell if you do not know which shell
you are using...)
