says just doubleclick on the setup file  (Listpro-Wine-Setup.exe)
or do "wine Listpro-Wine-Setup.exe" in whatever directory it's in.
You don't have to have it in c:\, normally, wine can see your home
directory just fine.

The app runs ok; a few quirks:
1. help is not really usable
2. mouse cursor disappears when hovering over a link
3. clicking on a link to a remote list file does download it ok,
but doesn't automatically open it in ListPro.  I got it to open in
a new ListPro by writing a little script,

cd "$HOME/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Ilium Software/ListPro"
wine ListPro "$@"

I saved this as ~/bin/listpro, did 'chmod +x ~/bin/listpro', and was then
able to specify that to Firefox as what to open the list with; it opened
