	Simply run this:

mv ~/.wine{,.old}

	And try again.

	Some time ago I was able to run previous version of SolidWorks in Wine and 
even create something in it (2D sketch) but there was too many bugs (for 
example, it crashed when I tried to create a feature). And installing it in 
Wine wasn't trivial. I already reported first bug that blocks SolidWorks normal 
installation. Here it is: http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=17089 . If you 
experience same problem as this bug describes you may want to to register in 
the bugzilla and vote for it. I didn't try to install SolidWorks 2010 in Wine 
but your error looks like exactly the same error that blocks normal 
installation of SolidWorks 2009 in clean Wine.

	In the past somebody reported that SolidWorks 2009 works in Wine with just a 
few workarounds: http://forum.winehq.org/viewtopic.php?t=6993 . You can try 
workarounds mentioned there with SolidWorks 2010. Please note that I didn't 
tried those workarounds myself.
