Is this the emulated program that shows this message, or wine itself? – Stefano Palazzo Jul 8 '11 at 18:30
I'd be helpful if we knew which program that is, from where you are running it and where the install.exe is located. – cweiske Jul 8 '11 at 18:35
@Stefano i think wine itself @cweiske when run in terminal $ wine data/Prog./Program/install.exe wine: cannot find 'data/Prog./Program/install.exe' – fronthem Jul 8 '11 at 18:41

Is this "Prog." an abbreviation for the real directory name? If no: please try in a directory without a dot at the end. If yes: does the real directory name have spaces, like "My Programs"? Then you have to quote these spaces, i.e. use double quotes or apostrophes, like so:

wine 'data/My Programs/Program/install.exe'
