I don't understand what you mean ^^^^^.

"21: Is a directory" means somewhere down in your software, it issues
a read( ) system call on a dir instead of file and thats what is being
reported. I don't know what "E:" bit is doing here. Is this a .exe
running on Linux? If so, you'd need to configure your wine first.
Even, then you aren't guaranteed that the .exe will run on Linux.
