Well, I guess I _could_ advise you to do something nasty then :)

You might try to get a VM (or, simply, another machine) up and running with windows (Legal of course) and install the software there. Get an application that checks for changes in registry and etcetera. Then, export all the registry keys that the installer changes. Adding to that, copy the folders it changes (probably just located at C:\program files c:\programas or c:\arquivos de programas).

So, with the folders and the registry backed up, you can 'pretend' you installed it in Wine, by importing the exported keys and placing the application right where it should be (if it is at c:\programas, place it in ~/.wine/drive_c/Programas etcetera)

That's kind of a last resort option if nothing else works.
