There is also "Path" aka work dir in the .desktop file you need to copy.

The sound can only work when music is playing while wine start. If I stop the music and open the game/wine, The sound doesn't work. This is not only just happen to that game but the whole wine system. So now, I much play some music with the player, and then open wine in order to make the sound work.

Looks like you have pulseaudio running - disable/kill/remove it. It conflicts with Wine or any other program that uses ALSA or OSS directly.

However, I used Emulate a virtual desktop to run it because the game is old, and it looks very bad with my 22" monitor. When I use the virtual desktop mod, the Tab key, and the ESC doesn't really work. It seem to work in the very few sec, if I am lucky, but It doesn't really work for long, and I don't know when exactly it will work. For the game I am playing, I really need those key to work out right in order to play. Those key only work in full screen mod. 

Make sure that none of the modifier keys (shift, ctrl, alt) "stuck". Just press each of them several times.
