No. Wine will almost certainly run them once extracted, but I can't get
the f**ing thing (wordview) to install. I gather wine has issues with
the new "Microsoft Installer" or msi, and with new versions of
InstallShield as well.
I was able to extract the files from the self-extracting installer
archive with cabextract, but alas its not a program you seem to be able
to just ditch in a directory and run. Needs the installer.
I fear we may need to wait 'till the wine folks have got a handle on the
msi installation process.
