Can you connect to the directory where this file exists through your Linux system using Samba?

If you can, you can map the drive through Winecfg to appear as a local drive.  Otherwise, you may have to use a VM running WindowsXP to work with this file until Wine becomes more mature.  If you have programming skills and the desire, you can take this on as a project.  Just remember, Wine developers cannot look at Windows source code nor can they reverse engineer Windows code.  The idea is to replicate Windows functionality in a clean-room environment.
