I've had this problem numerous times when trying to install software in WINE, now I've come to the point where I have to install something in WINE. Installing the program works fine, as soon as I go to run it however I get the message Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime. Runtime Error I have installed the above package using wine tricks, but still nothing. Have goggled to try and find if I am missing Dependencies or anything obvious, but after that I am stuck. Cheers

Have you seen the known bugs Section at WineHQ for this software? Have you tried installing it the recommended way? Does it work now? If not, move your wine configuration folders (.wine) somewhere safe, start with a new configuration, install the recommended way and try again. Hope this helps, good luck.
