Apps are not run via winecfg.

Follow these instructions for running the installer:  http://wiki.winehq.org/FAQ#head-f3515230c198befe0279d32c448d9c8da63be66f

Try it first with autorun.exe, but if that doesn't work, you'll have to figure out which file is the real installer (possibly autoexec.exe or instalar.exe) and run that.

>From the contents of the cd, it looks like the app is going to try to install Flash, Shockwave, Windows Media Player, and vb6run; that may fail. If the installer dies trying to install any of these, install whatever failed with winetricks. http://wiki.winehq.org/winetricks

If you run into problems, post terminal output. http://wiki.winehq.org/FAQ#get_log
