If you’re trying to install and MSI files on your linux box, you might not see it firing up. Windows Installer component is needed which was introduced Windows 2000 or later to install these files. The executable ‘msiexec’ can let you install these .msi packages.
Use the following command to install the msi package named xyz.msi
wine msiexec /i xyz.msi
msiexec /i fileinstaller.msi
If you don’t find msiexec working, Download Winetricks by Dan Kegel’s to get the binary and start using it.
Note: Winetricks is also good to get many of the Windows binaries, dependencies, dlls etc. Ensure that you have a license to use them on your machine.
