  • ...and how do you run it? You forgot to post the exact command, so please add it to the question. – mikewhatever Dec 29 '14 at 20:35

You will not be able to get it to run from WINE: it has a garbage rating.

I would suggest installing Windows from a Virtual Machine and install it from there. That will work.

Wine is compatible to install .msi files as well either in Ubuntu or Mac. You need to configure your wine setup initially which I presume you have already done.

Just type wine start fileName.msi. This will automatically install your desired file.

Here is the supporting link to the Wine FAQ.
