"program.exe" (which it is obvious you got that from the docs) is a 
sample. Replace it with the name of your executable that you wish to 
run, with or without .exe (and case insensitive, so you can type it in 
ALLCAPS or allsmalls even if the filename is in MixedCase.)

So if your program is aim.exe, do two things:

Make sure you are in the directory that aim.exe is in (if the Windows 
directory is "C:\Program Files\AOL Instant Messenger", your Wine/UNIX 
directory is "~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/AOL Instant Messenger", 
please note that if the path has spaces in it, you need to put the whole 
thing in quotes, or put a backslash '\' in front of EVERY space in the 
path) and run wine like so (with the emulated shell prompt that you 
don't type out:

segin at segin.no-ip.org:~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/AOL Instant 
Messenger$ wine aim.exe
