[Wine] Help Getting Program to Run

I am a new Wine user and have what is perhaps an odd request. I am trying to switch over to Ubuntu completely but haven't done that just yet. I have a Windows XP host machine with Ubuntu (8.10) installed as a VirtualBox guest machine. I have installed Wine on Ubuntu. My wife loves the Windows Spider game so I thought I would try to get that to run under Wine. Alas, no luck.
I have searched numerous sources but have found no specific answer. I have found that most programs need a setup program to be installed in Wine. But, the Spider game, as far as I know, has no setup program. I tried just copying the program into the Wine programs folder and that does work but it is very slow and, for my wife, difficult to get to. So, any help would be appreciated.
