If you're trying to create a script or launcher to run it I have always
cd /path/to/app/top/level && wine app.exe
There are numerous programs that don't like running unless the called
from the same directory where the executable lives. This, as far as I
know, has been the case with wine quite some time. Some progs create a
registry entry that specifies the root dir for the app, but most don't.
