Thanks for the hint, dimesio. When I create a new wineprefix, the directory "Program" is created instead of "Program Files". After some more investigations I have found that the application install directory is determined by a setting in regedit: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> System -> CurrentControlSet -> Control -> SessionManager -> Environment -> ProgramFiles. In my setup, this key has the value Program. I suppose I could have changed it before installing any applications and that I can do this now and reinstall my applications. But how do I change this globally, i.e. that a new wineprefix gets it right and that a new Linux user gets it rigth. This key must be populated from somewhere but wherefrom?

The Linuxmint distro is based on Ubuntu and the Wine package actually comes from the Ubuntu 11.04 distro. Unless the distro tampers with it somehow during the installation it seems very odd that I seem to be the only one being bothered about this issue considering the size of Ubuntu?
