         Hi Vitamin. I did try to run it as user in Ubuntu 10.04 and the 
installer never opened. I will paste the terminal output here from both 
ways I tried to run it. Also, I have a Solitaire game here (exe file) 
and you experts told me to get the installer to work, set the emulator 
in wine to Win 98. Did that and it's fine. Will that matter with the msi 
file. I'm trying to run ispq9.msi which is on the Desktop. It's a video 
conferencing program. Here's the terminal output as user. Thanks  Newbie 
here.                  Bob

benjie1 at benjie1:~/Desktop$ wine ispq9.msi
wine: Bad EXE format for H:\ispq9.msi

     That's all I know to try. The installer never showed at all. Thanks 
for the help.                       Bob
