[Wine]Can't use wineprefix option

Perhaps you should try:

WINEPREFIX=/directory/config wine /directory/program.exe

This assumes that you have a shell like sh, or bash. The WINEPREFIX=...
bit tells the shell to set that environment variable, then wine ...
tells it to run wine with ... as arguments. The way you have it, wine is
given an _argument_ "$WINEPREFIX=...", but it's expecting an environment
