To be sure that the issue is no regression of wine 1.3.0 I installed wine 1.2. Same here, wine fails to run the setup.exe from Fritz 11 DVD.

As it was said before the WindowsOnWindows engine still needs work.  Are 
you able to run other 32 bit programs from the 64 bit version of Wine?

Right now, you will need a 64 bit and a 32 bit installation of Wine and 
separate Wine prefixes for both.

You might run into the same error.
