Did you quote the path? Remember, the backslash character is special to
the shell. It's the "escape character". So the shell will strip the
backslashes away unless you either escape them:

winepath -u Z:\\Applications\\Firefly\\BENCH1.out

or put the path in *single* quotes:

winepath -u 'Z:\Applications\Firefly\BENCH1.out'

Double quotes don't work because the shell still interprets backslashes
inside of them.
