I'm trying to install python under WINE in order to run and communicate with a windows application that uses COM.

I've tried the following but neither seems to work:

[root@localhost ForCentOS]# wine msiexec /i python-2.7.2.msi
fixme:msi:MSI_OpenDatabaseW open failed r = 80030050 for L"C:\\windows\\temp\\msifc.tmp"
[root@localhost ForCentOS]#

[root@localhost ForCentOS]# wine start python-2.7.2.msi
fixme:exec:SHELL_execute flags ignored: 0x00000500
--> this hangs and does not return...

Wouldn't python for linux work for you? –  Caltor Oct 24 '12 at 10:19
