Your log indicates that the partition containing the .exe file you're
trying to run has probably been mounted with the noexec option. This
means Wine isn't allowed to map the .exe code into memory with
executable permission.

You'll need to change the mount options on that volume.

Also, be advised that you should run installers inside Wine and not
use an existing installation. Only filesystems designed for unix
(ext3, not ntfs or fat) will work properly with Wine.

If you want to install your programs to a different partition, I
suggest setting the WINEPREFIX environment variable to a folder on
that partition. This will keep your registry and C: drive together
with the install. Mapping the partition to D: and installing to there
should also work, but it's not as "tidy" in my opinion.
