You should have something like this in your wine config:
"Path" = "~/driveC"
"Type" = "hd"
"Label" = "windows"
"Filesystem" = "win95"
Then you can start wordpad with this.
wine ~/driveC/Program Files/Accessories/wordpad.exe
You can also add the following to your config in section [wine]:
"Path" = "...;c:\\Program Files\\Accessories"
Then you can start it with:
