If you haven't tried running it from the command line, do so:

export WINEPREFIX=$HOME/name of wine prefix
cd $WINEPREFIX/name of directory containing the exe
wine name.exe

If you used the default wineprefix (i.e. didn't set it) skip the
'export' line.

Its always worth while running a wine app from the command line first
time because, if it doesn't run, wine will usually say what stopped it,
such as a missing DLL or other error. If you do the first run by
clicking an icon you won't see any of this useful information. 

Its also a good idea to always install a program in its own wine prefix:
this way installing it can't upset a program that was perviously
installed in the same prefix.
