    How to install .msi file in Linux

    I am using Data Doctor MSI to EXE Creatortool, It is is a powerful setup development environment to transform Microsoft Windows installer (.msi) setup files into executable installer (.exe) file format in just a few steps. Data Doctor MSI to EXE Creator automatically creates a .exe file from the selected .msi file and saves the converted file in safe location selected by the user. It is also provides an easy way to make a complete setup installation package (.exe) without making any changes in the original functionality and features of existing (.msi) setup file.
