I think you can associate the exe extension to Wine from your file manager. See if there is something like Tools > Options and look around for a way to set file associations.

Additionally I have found that if the binfmt package (support for extra binary formats) is installed, then exes automatically open in Wine even without associating them. You can even run them from the command line like as "./filename.exe" instead of "wine filename.exe".

VLC has a linux version; I don't see why you would need Wine to run it. So do many portable apps.
