Nero Disc Speed (in Linux)

I had Disc Speed installed in Win for decades, various updates as needed.
I have WINE installed in my Linux computer already.
Where in a standard Windows system is Disc Speed installed? E.g. Program Files, Program Files (x86), etc? Often I can run directly off the Windows drive.
Or if download onto my Linux system (download folder) and click the EXE, Wine will install it in the proper .wine directory).
I can't seem to (a) find the Windows folder nor (b) install it fresh from Linux.
Linux Mint 64-bit. Intel Core i7-9700K CPU @ 3.60GHz × 8 . Kernel Linux 5.4.0-136-generic x86_64. Memory: 16GB. Mesa Intel UHD Graphics 630 (CFL GT2). Various external USB DACs. Schiit, Topping, etc

Thanks.
I had XP2 before Linux and just found it (DiscSpeed.exe, in this folder):
/media/file625/2A74334C743319D1/Documents and Settings/my_user_name/My Documents/Nero_tools
Yes, it works in Linux!

On a more typical Linux setup (like on Linux Mint for example) Windows programs will be located...

"~/.wine/drive_c" (or /home/user/.wine/drive_c)

then at that point the basic directory structure is just like Windows is.

p.s. alternatively one can install stuff in PlayOnLinux which stores stuff in a different location... "~/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix". the rest should be easy enough to figure out. I run KProbe (for doing disc quality checks) through PlayOnLinux with Wine v4.0.4 (32bit) since ASPI still works in seeing ones CD/DVD drives on this old version where as newer Wine versions don't.
For music I suggest (using Foobar2000)... MP3 (LAME) @ V5 (130kbps). NOTE: using on AGPTEK-U3 as of Mar 18th 2021. I use 'fatsort' (on Linux) so MP3's are listed in proper order on AGPTEK-U3.
