[Wine] MSI failure while trying to install gmax

So I am trying to get back to finding the error in gmax, and I have to reinstall it because of the new machine and all.  So I tried just putting it in after downloading it from TurboSquid.  It complained about MSI having a major error, and quit, leaving me with a partial install.  I got a panel suggesting this might be a problem with wine.

So I used winetricks to install msi2.  Failed again:  Here is the console output from both the msi2 winetricks install and the attempt to install gmax.

I would really appreciate some advice here.  I may have missed something in preparing my environment or this could be a legitimate bug.  Please advise.
