Install an .msi file using Wine

This tutorial works in Ubunbu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu, Lubuntu, Ubuntu Mate and other Ubuntu based distributions. The tutorial also works in Linux Mint and other Debian based distributions.

I downloaded some Windows software to install in Wine. After downloading I noticed it 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.
