This is a tough area because Mono is not an emulator. This means
that applications must be sometimes ported to be able to run under
Mono. Usually, only the developer or a skilled mono hacker is able
to do this work, but the latter is rather unlikely to happen, given
that the app you're trying to run is a commercial one.

Are you aware that this is the Linux version of Mono? It
doesn't pay attention to Wine at all.

This means that only fully managed .NET applications are likely
to run.

Maybe you'd have more luck with Mono for Windows under Wine,
but this a totally different story. Not many people (if any)
on this list are using this combination, so you'd have to look
for help on Wine's mailing links/forums.
