[Wine] Problem with software installation - Panasonic Camcorder

All of the camera driver files are .exe files.  They all display the
wine icon when the directory is opened.  Attempting to install one
gives the following message:

The file '/media/PANASONIC/USB_Driver/Video/setup.exe' is not marked
as executable.  If this was downloaded or copied form an untrusted
source, it may be dangerous to run.  For more details, read about the
executable bit.

I have tried to flip the executable toggle through the GUI but it will
not stay flipped.
I can find lots of information describing the executable bit and how
it provides security but no information on how to take control of it.

Accidental deaths by firearms account for less than 1% of the 30,000.
There are three times as many medical mistake deaths in the US than
there are accidental gun deaths.  Perhaps we need safety locks on
doctors and nurses?
