That's not off-topic at all, if the topic is "how the heck do I start using wine",
which I think it is!

So, you need to either mark that file executable, or run it from
the commandline with wine instead of double-clicking on it.

To mark it executable, do
  chmod +x /home/josiah/.cache/.fr-yzjVug/Setup-BGT.exe

But maybe we should start even simpler.  How about Plants Vs. Zombies?
Try this:

  wget http://winezeug.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/wisotool
  sh wisotool plantsvszombies
  cd ~/.wine/drive_c
  wine cmd /c run-plantsvszombies.bat

Does that work?  If so, try running
  sh wisotool
and using it to install any of the games marked with [download].
