That has been known to work, but not without some serious hacking. One
major problem is the software needs administrative access, so you need
to copy the registry from a working windows to the wine system.
If you're up to it its ok, but you do have to wonder whether you really
want cross contamination :), or even whether you want to support a
company that stubbornly refuses to consider OSS as a system it will
build it software for.
