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. 

That key doesn't exist in any of the wineprefixes on my system, and the Program Files directory was correctly created in all of them. This is on openSUSE, with the distro packages.

Are you using an actual Ubuntu package, or does Mint repackage it? 

One thing I do notice is the package you're using is very old; it's not even the newest stable release. Try upgrading to the latest development release (1.3.26) and see if you have the same problem.
