Hmm.. I think my last mail didn't manage to get into the list because  
of too big image attachements, sorry.
If it does, I'm sorry for dupes.

I just want to mention that I've managed to install Visual Studio 2005  
completely with WINE.

1) installed "vcrun6" (with winetricks)
2) applied 1 patch from
(Required for overall installation)
3) applied patched from
(Required for .NET 2.0 installation)
4) applied "msi: ACTION_RegisterProduct store all InstallProperties"  
patch from wine-patches I've sent recently
(Without this patch Visual Studio 2005 will think that MS XML 6.0 and  
some others is still uninstalled!)

Installation goes without problem, however running "devenv.exe" causes  
several problems with .NET 2.0 packages and crashes a lot :( too bad.  
Most crashes and errors are because of few missing WINE API functions,  
and incomplete .NET 2.0 support.
Still I think WINE's close to run Visual Studio! which will be great  
news for multi-platform developers.
