installing windows live


I have tried several times to install windows live using wine, i did make the file executable but when i try to run the cursor acts like its loading but nothing ever happens. Are there any commands i need to use or am i missing a step?

Windows live is currently not supported by Wine.

I think it's because Live requires silverlight and the .NET framework to be operational.
