I don't have en error screen, with or without configuration button, nor
do I have any winesetup, so I guess maybe they are Debian wrappers or
so.  is Debian the one that names wine to wine.bin and wraps it with
something else?

Yes, you need to configure wine.  It is not clever enough to guess which
resources on your *nix system you want to let windows apps get at.

Have a read or two of "man wine.conf"

Or maybe copy the sample you might find in
<wine>/documentation/samples/config and change the paths to point to
paths that exist on your system.
