[Wine] Installing the hard way?

I'm trying to install a program called PV-WAVE and the installer seems to be failing (early on) for some reason.  The installer looks like it uses a lot of java so maybe some kind of interference there.  In any event, it occurred to me that maybe I could install PV-WAVE on a real Windows box and copy over the resulting installation.  My question then, is that doable, in principle?  I think PV-WAVE installs into just one folder tree.  In general, if I copied over the files/folders, environment variables and registry settings I should be all set, no?

Just in case; has anyone here tried installing the Windows version of PV-WAVE onto a Linux/WINE setup?  How'd it go?

The host OS is OpenSUSE 12.1.
