I'm trying understand how functionality behind it in the sense that perhaps there are settings one can tweak.

In Linux a spact is not marked using %20 but rather a backslash followed
by a space '\ '. However, to start a program in Wine it is best to use:
cd $HOME/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Alibre\ Design\Program
wine 'Alibre Design.exe'
If you want a logging file (highly recommended)
wine 'Alibre Design.exe' > design.log 2>&1
All of the above is explained in the Wine FAQ at
