That's not what I suggested, that path was just an example. However I
meant /media/YOURUSERNAME/risen/, sorry for giving a bad example. ;)

What I suggested was:
1. Mount the CD as you usually do in KDE 5.
2. Open a terminal.
3. In the terminal "cd PATH", with PATH being the full pathname of the
folder of setup.exe.
4. In the same terminal issue "wine setup.exe".

Since setup.exe seems to be in the top directory of your CD, PATH is the
same as the path you mounted the CD.
If you don't know which path it is mounted to, you can check it in
/etc/mtab. If you have trouble figuring out the correct path from
/etc/mtab you might send that file to me.
Alternatively you might (not sure about that because I don't use KDE)
right click on the icon of the mounted CD or of setup.exe and check its
properties. If you find e.g. /media/YOURUSERNAME/risen/setup.exe then
PATH is /media/YOURUSERNAME/risen/.
