Yes, it is like you say. You can not just point to a directory and say
"run". You can not do that on Windows and you can not do that in Wine.
It's because you have to *install* applications and that means more than
copying files to a place on your hard disk. There are registry keys,
configurations files and so on, all relative to your installation and
for sure, regarding the registry, on a special place.

Do yourself a favour and install the games with plain Wine again if you
want to have success. You approach is much to hard to simulate and have
so many side effects that results are not predictable.
