4.6: How do I run an MS Windows program under Wine?

When invoking Wine, you must specify the entire path to the executable,
or by filename only.

For example: to run Windows' solitaire:

        wine sol                   (using the search path to locate 
        wine sol.exe               the file)
 
        wine c:\\windows\\sol.exe  (using a DOS filename)
 
        wine /usr/windows/sol.exe  (using a UNIX filename)

The path of the file will also be added to the path when a full name is
supplied on the command line.
