Some apps like it to be called from their installation directory. Did
you try to cd to this directory first? Sometimes you als need to give
them the path in Windows notation. Try something like

cd ~/.wine/drive_c/pathtodrawingboard
wine c:\\pathtodrawingboard

Use \\ for every windows slash you need.

There is also qemu if you just want a cheap solution to run your
software. It works good with Win98 and is somehow slow but if you
software is not too graphic driven it might work.
