	I assume you are using recent WINE release. If so, try this:

mv ~/.wine{,.backup}
wine setup.exe
cd ~/.wine/drive_c/Games/My_Game
wine game.exe

	Where "setup.exe" is game' installer, "Games/My_Game" is where it was 
installed in drive_c, "game.exe" is game' main executable.
	Please note that it is *important* to cd to the directory with the game 
executalbe! Many Windows programs (including games) assume that you run them 
this way and will not work otherwise.

	If your game still doesn't work then please fill bug report at 
http://bugs.winehq.org . Please note that most developers don't read this 
list so it is really important to report bugs at http://bugs.winehq.org if 
you want to get your bug fixed.

	Thank you for using WINE.
