In general, the best thing to do is to install the apps separately into
Wine. You can still use the mounted Windows partition to share data
files. Many apps install registry entries that you would need to
transfer from the Windows registry to the Wine registry. Is there some
reason you are attempting to share this disk space?
The answer is fairly simple. I have a few apps, starting with CodeWright and next MetaDeveloper (a C compiler for an ARC processor that only exists as a Windows set of .EXE files) that I would like to run from Linux to avoid using two computers for a project that compiles using both Windows and Linux toolchains using wine.
There are few if any registry entries, but there are a few DLL's. So, it seems that adding the .EXE's and .DLL's to the path when using the Windows partition is the most straightforward solution.
