You don't do anything special to run such an executable - wine handles
it like any other executable, and the way you are invoking it is correct.

the problem is that you're missing a file: as you can see in the
second-to-last line of your output there, MSVCR90.dll isn't being found.
So, you'll need a copy of that library for your program to work.
