You can test in a temporary prefix, or move it away temporarily:
$ mv ~/.wine ~/.wine.bak
$ wine setup.exe # test again here
$ rm -rf ~/.wine # remove the test wineprefix
$ mv ~/.wine.bak ~/.wine

native dlls = dlls from windows/winetricks. Dan means don't do any
winetricks overrides/copy dlls from windows, etc. Just use plain wine.
