I haven't tried that yet, but I have found that while Wine Gecko now builds the code 
the MSI creation process has a bug. I didn't notice the RPMs were in the 100k size 
instead of 100MB size.

The 'wine cabarc.exe -r -m mszip N msi/files' command fails to create 
a valid cab file. It's empty.

Using 'gcab' to create a valid cabinet the msibuilder commands still create a valid 
MSI and installs successfully.
