[Wine] Whereigo builder under Wine

After my little netbook took a spill, we were unable to reinstall Windows.  No great loss, got Ubuntu 10.10 working, and I'm content, except for one thing: I have one Windows application that I'd like to try to run, and it is a very obscure one.

The Geocaching whereigo builder is available only for Windows (I actually had some headaches getting it to run on my 64-bit Win 7 system).  I was able to install Wine and the program without much hassle, but it isn't running, and I don't know where to start troubleshooting.  

I searched the forums, and to no surprise, I didn't find anything.  When I try to run the program, I get 2 error boxes: "Invalid parameter" and "There is no windows program configured to open this file type."  The installer was an .msi file, but opened with the Wine installer OK.

I have a workaround (a Windows system at home and also a web-based alternative builder), but would really like to get this running if possible.  Can anyone point me in the right direction?  Thanks for reading!
