    Looks like a path issue. Are you launching WINE from the directory that Setup.exe is in? Also, Linux is case sensitive, so make sure you give it precisely the right name for your setup file. "Setup.exe" is different from "setup.exe."

    This is the most probably cause.

    That would be true for any other program. However wine deals with that internally. You would write "wine setup.exe", "wine Setup.exe" or even "wine setup" and it will work.

    I wasn't aware of that. Duly noted.
