Actually, if you can do this, it is a best practice for installing new 
programs and tesing with Wine:

Open a terminal session (applies regardless of which operating system 
you are using)


cd $HOME
mv .wine{,.backup}
wine notepad

This will create a new and clean .wine to work in.

Apply all changes made with Winetricks

Then install your program.

Run the program from the command line.

If the program will not run, or if you want to remove all changes again, 
you can change the move (mv) command to:

mv wine{,.backup1}

Reminder, you might want to 'prune' the number of backups every once in 
a while to conserve space.
