~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files is the directory I'm assuming the 'Fake
Windows' drive. You should put the files from CCW into
~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/CCW and see if the program will run from
there. If the program installs to C:\CCW then put it in
~/.wine/drive_c/ccw You will not need to map any drives as wine
'C:\ccw\<programname.exe> (put the program name in place of
<programname.exe>) should run the program.
