Please run the following command and post the output after "-- System Information:":

reportbug --template -T none -s none -S normal -b --list-cc none -q wine

Also check the executable links themselves (errors in the link are not catched:

ls -l /usr/bin/wine32 /usr/bin/wine64
ls -l --dereference /usr/bin/wine32 /usr/bin/wine64

Typo in terminal? Could explain a part of the story.

Did you change terminals or something like that? Don't do that. Perhaps reboot your
system. And for every new try remove your old wineprefixes, just because ....

Verify your settings:
ls -l ~/.wine ~/.wine64

Then try (one line!):
WINEARCH=win32 WINEDEBUG="fixme+all,err+all" WINEPREFIX="$HOME/.wine" wine amhc34062b.exe
