I doubt those % are really part of the path (they are definitely not part of Program Files), and that's not the way to handle spaces in filenames. The easiest way is just to put double quotes around the whole thing.

Change (cd) to the program directory first, then run the app with wine and just the name of the exe, e.g.

wine "Alibre Design.exe"
