InstallShield 7

Any hints on getting InstallShield *7* to install an app?

When I look at a real Windows machine, I see several files in "C:\Program 
Files\Common Files\InstallShield\Driver\7\Intel 32".

Running setup.exe under Wine produces the InstallShield error message 
"1611: Unable to extract the file (null)."  A little web searching suggests 
that this might mean that the InstallShield scripting engine is not 
installed.  I suspect that may be the missing files, but simply copying 
them does not seem to be enough.

I've got real Windows CDs for most versions, and I'm not trying to achieve 
a Windows-free Wine, although I might whine about not being Windows free.
