Wine "help" does not respond.
Instead of double clicking them and letting the archive manager attempt to handle the file, right click on the file and you should see a choice worded something like "Run with Wine Windows Program Loader." Select that and Wine should attempt to run the program.
Notice I said ATTEMPT to run the program. Wine is great and can run a lot of stuff, but sometimes it chokes....
