Wine should be able to run most things, not just simple programs. It
might need some DLLs from a real installation of Windows
(http://www.dll-files.com/ should help), and it might not run without
errors, but it should be able to handle most programs.
Wine's Application Database (http://appdb.winehq.org/) is good place
to check if Wine is able to run your program.
If the program is a self-extracting zip file, unzip should be able to
extract the files.
If the program is a .Net executable, use Mono
(http://www.mono-project.com/) instead of Wine.
