That doesn't answer my question. What is the host operating system, and why aren't you installing in that?

You can copy the wineprefix to another computer, but may have to change some things in the registry. 

FYI, I downloaded the app. It tries to install a driver and fails. I suspect it's something that requires access to the Windows kernel, and hence will never work in Wine, because there is no Windows kernel.
