1) Install via command line using
msiexec /i renweb.msi
2) download the following dll files from www.dll-files.com:
mfc40.dll and msvbvm60.dll
Then, extract them to your .wine/drive_c/RenWeb/RenWeb.com folder
3) If you want to use your native browser (in my case, Firefox) change the BROWSER line in your Parameter.txt file to:
BROWSER /usr/bin/firefox <-- with a tab after Browser
4) The reports will still try spawn a new WINE IE browser, but it is usually blank. Still, you can open up Report.HTM (found in your .wine/drive_c/RenWeb/RenWeb.com folder)in whatever browser you want, so just bookmark the location.
