env WINEPREFIX="/home/steven/.wine" wine "C:\downloads\Playmoney\Playmoney.exe"
... if your downloaded filename is Playmoney.exe and username is steven.
Wine configuration command is winecfg from Linux command line, where the drive C: is ../drive_c in
the tab "Drives". there is also the button "Autodetect", which is useful and after pressing that
these settings can be saved by pressing "Apply" button.
that "../drive_c" is located in Linux filesystem at /home/steven/.wine/drive_c
So, you can add folders in Linux in Wine config as drive you want.
