In case of the exe file in cd rom or mounted iso file, you should make 
sure the drive/mont point is mapped as a drive in wine through wine 
configuration (winecfg). I just realize this as Brian told me his file 
size is over 500 MB. So, it is not just a simple exe file but a CD ROM 
installation. DK

I've exported the 'running' picture it.exe from my vista and run it past 
wine, but I got
so many missing dependencies that I gave up. Is this worth following up.
