Also, if you have an extra Windows license, you can create a VM under
Qemu (free). You can then run the VM under Qemu, or use Qemu to
convert it to VMWare's format and run it under their free VMPlayer.
VMWare workstation is great if you plan on doing this a lot and want
easy control over the virtual hardware of your VMs. It is sub-$200,
but I think the beta for v6 is out right now for free.
These approaches require beefier hardware and will not offer the same
performance as running a single app under Wine.
