You can create a new wine prefix by doing the following (in a bash shell):

export WINEPREFIX=<path to new wine prefix here>
cd <path to program installer here>
wine <program name to install program here>

It is recommended that you create wine prefixes for EACH program you run in case something breaks, like it did here.
