	By definition if you cannot access it you cannot run programs from it. But 
you of course can.
	First, if you want to convert Windows path to UNIX path run something like 

winepath "C:\Program Files\Corel\Ventura 10/Programs/ventura.exe"

	And you will get the output (it may vary for your system but if you didn't 
tweak WINEPREFIX environment variable it will be very similar to example 
below; "~" means your home directory):

~/.wine/dosdevices/c:/Program Files/Corel/Ventura 10/Programs/ventura.exe

	As you can see you always always can to cd to your virtual C:\ drive and do 
whatever you want with its files or subdirectories.

	Please read http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1798 ; you probably want 
to mention there that your program doesn't work out-of-the-box.

	Here is few hints:

	Try this (just copy/past these two lines to you X terminal):

cd "`winepath 'C:\Program Files\Corel\Ventura 10/Programs/'`"
wine explorer /desktop=Ventura_10,800x600 ventura.exe

	...And see if it helps.
	You can replace "Ventura_10" with any name you like (this is uniq ID for 
virtual desktop). And of course you can adjust the resolution of your virtual 
WINE desktop as necessary.
