Partner organization:

I don't understand why we should run Wine(if installed) once user
clicks on exe/msi file. In my opionion, users keep only installers on
desktop and removes it after installation. Also keeping every
application installed in one prefix is not good solution. There also
should winecfg been running once this case. Of course, we should have
DB to store information about connection between wineprefix and exe
file. We can also add other enchancement, like asking to connect
PlayOnLiinux repository to download Linux installer script. Another
example is asking user to select application icon and application
category(probably it need to depther wine integration).

Use Case:
Peter would like to install Dev-C++. It only downloads it from page,
click twice on desktop and select create new prefix. Once installation
completes, he can remove installator from desktop.
