Wine uninstall does not work for this program. I gather I can uninstall by deleting the .wine folder, but that will delete the other programs as well. I also gather that by the use of WINEPREFIX a windows program can be installed elsewhere than in .wine, and then deleting and recreating .wine will have no affect on such an installation. If this is true, could I move these programs out of .wine to another folder by moving from .wine/drive_c/Program Files/... to another folder setup by wineprefixcreate and modifying the program calls to take this WINPREFIX setup into account ?
You can move the ~/.wine folder, yes. You'll have to edit any
shortcuts involved with the prefix. You'll still have that extra
program installed, but can simply ignore it, or (ideally), you could
remove ~/.wine, and reinstall each program in its own prefix.
