Use full path. 

You may  pass  arguments  to  the program being executed by adding
them to the end of the command line invoking wine (such as: wine
notepad C:\\TEMP\\README.TXT)

 Note that you need to '\' escape special characters (and spaces) when
invoking Wine via a shell. If wine should run the program myapp.exe
with the arguments --(2 gyphons)display  3d  somefile  ,  then  you
could use the following command line to invoke wine:

       wine --dll riched32=n -- myapp.exe --display 3d somefile

Check the man pages for more details.....
