[Wine] Why can't one run Wine apps in Windows

from mere curiosity, I copied my .wine folder to Windows and tried running the *.exe files therein (such as notepad.exe, clock.exe etc), but absolutely nothing seems to happen.
Is this normal? Also, is the reason Wine programs don't run in Windows a legal or a technical one? And, in the latter case, could you provide some detailed info on why this is so?

Thanks for all your help.
