Wine - Won't open

Hello, apologies if this is a dumb question, i’m still finding my way around Qubes.
I have installed Wine via the Terminal Template. I can see Wine available in my Personal Qube. However, whenever I click on ‘Wine Configuration’ it doesn’t open. Nor can I open an exe file.

Is there something I am missing here?

Thanks in advance.

What are your installation steps and what are you using (Qubes version, template and its version)?

I’ve installed wine on debian-12-xfce for a test by following this guide:
And I can’t open the installed wine apps using Qubes OS menu as well.
I’m getting this message in qube log when I try to run wine app using Qubes OS menu:

wine-tst systemctl[1428]: Failed to connect to bus: No medium found

This message is unrelated, it’s generated when I start any app using Qubes OS menu and not only wine apps.

It was a problem with allowed characters in .desktop filename. If you remove the disallowed characters (e.g. ’ ', ‘+’ etc) from the wine app desktop file in ~/.local/share/applications/wine/Programs and refresh applications list in qube Settings then it’ll work.
