The answer above was deleted by a mod with the justification:
The workaround is Windows only!
Either this person doesn't know Wine's folder structure (
drive_c) and/or doesn't know WineHQ from where the workaround was copied from (and linked to), a single test of the game in question: https://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=28925
Whether or not it works remains to be tested. I didn't test it and I won't. I don't buy Windows games. But in any case, there's no reason to delete an answer that faithfully reproduces a possible solution found by someone testing it and having experienced the same problem as the OP.
