Installing Msn 7.0 with wine on mandriva 2006

Well guys I got wine from easy urpmi I installed it and everything and I was looking through forums in how to install but im still a little confused in how to install something as easy as msn 7.0

i got the program from msn site it name is INSTALL_MSN_MESSENGER_DL.EXE
i got wine and everything i think i saw from somewhee around the forum to install it you need to do this


and it execute something and it gave me this error msn setup failed, please go to msn website and download the software from there

I read somewhere on winehq that msn 7.0 works on linux
all the other programs like gaim,amsn,kopete they cant use webcams or use video conversation closes one to msn iss amsn so that's why im trying to run msn 7.0 instead of all this programs
