I know nothing about WINE, but...

  1. Is the Windows app installed on a WIndows partition?
     Perhaps that partition isn't mounted, and hence the file cannot be seen?

  2. If you know the name of the file ("program.exe", for example), you
     can try either:

       locate program.exe


       find / -name "program.exe"

And that should tell you precisely where it is, if it's still there.
(Again, see #1 above :^) )

Good luck!
