I read this page and have decided to try too.
But despite it, there was an error that the module mstsc.exe.mui hasn't been found.
So I copied the ALL contents of the folder: C:\Windows\System32\uk-UA into the wineprefix folder:

In wine-prefix-folder had been installed such subjects: cmd, vcrun6, vcrun6sp6, gdiplus, corefonts.
Then, using winecfg the Windows-version on Wine had been set to WindowsXP. (SIC!)

Connection to remote PC using IP (from LogMeInHamachi) as computer-name and blank username had been sucusessful.
Oh yea, don't copy/paste IP from clipboard - enter it manually. Also make several attempts.

Here are:
1) Debian v9.2;
2) wine-stable v1.8.7;
3) mstsc.exe v6.1.7601 from Windows 7 Ultimate x86;
4) C:\Windows\System32\ folder with all content;
5) cmd, vcrun6, vcrun6sp6, gdiplus, corefonts are installed on wineprefix.

Sorry for my english.
Best regards.
