Wine Logo

I downloaded some Windows software to install in Wine and noticed this was in .msi format.

I couldn't open with Wine to install the software from the right click menu, so the only other way was via the terminal using the msiexec command.

wine msiexec /i abc.msi

The msiexec command is a tool for installing .msi packages.
The . MSI file extension stands for Microsoft Software Installer
