	There is no point to trying to solve problem(s) for a broken setup. First, 
install recent Wine version - 1.1.42 or at least 1.1.41. Then install the game 
properly, don't try to run it from Windows partition:

mv ~/.wine ~/.wine.old
wine start /unix "/path/to/setup.exe"

	Replace "/path/to/setup.exe" with actual name and path to your setup file. 
Please note that "wine start /unix" is recommended way to run Windows 
executables (without "start /unix" you will need to navigate to the directory 
with the executable you want to run).

	This will install the game correctly. Then try to run it. If you still have 
the problem - post here terminal output.

	Thank you for using Wine.
