Install windows .exe on mac using wine?

I have an iso image, which contains a .exe file. the iso image is from a game that runs on windows. once i run the iso image, wine (version 1.0) starts up, and when i run the exe file, in the process window, i see the exe file for maybe 3 seconds, and then it stops. im pretty much a noob, so i dont know if what im trying to do works. would i need to install this game some other way and then run* it using wine? or something else...
