~/.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.
