The thing to be careful of is having both .Net EXEs that you want to
run with Mono and standard EXEs that you want to run with Wine. One or
the other will become the default (I found Wine won as they were all
considered to be "ms-windows/executable" or similar) but Wine won't
run Mono EXEs and Mono won't run Wine EXEs.

If you do want to use both .Net and 'standard' EXEs on one machine
then you'll have to have one that works with the default association
and one that always has to be opened with a right-click > Open With.
