To run a command in the current directory you need to put ./ on the
front (this is because for commands it looks in the PATH and the
current directory is not in the path), so you need
./DAZStudio_4.5.0.114_Win32.exe
I think it is better to use

wine DAZStudio_4.5.0.114_Win32.exe

rather than relying on the system working that out for itself (see
https://wiki.winehq.org/Wine_User%27s_Guide#How_to_run_Windows_programs_from_the_command_line
)

However, if you have not already done so, I suggest googling for
dazstudio ubuntu and find a blog from someone who has succeeded and
follow that.
