The installer starts. this is a pretty big improvement over some earlier versions of wine.
What does not
everything else you get to the point where you hit install, and get a lovely error message that says
C:\Program Files\AutoCAD 2009 is not empty. Do you really want to install to this location?
this dialog box is the last thing you see before it errors out and setup shuts down entirely.
What was not tested
everything was not tested the program does not install does not work.
This is fundamentally crippling to anyone in Architecture, Engineering design, Electronics design, Broadcasting, Landscape design, or anyone who needs to work with a standardized industry. Unfortunately Autodesk is a monopoly and in order to be competetive you have to use it to be standards compliant with the rest of the industry you work in. There are litterally hundreds of fields that it is used for from genetics to television to home construction. It is the standard and as long as it doesn't run under linux, posix, unix, solaris. Windows will be the choice of OS because there isn't any other. This needs to get fixed as a top priority. it's an incredibly windows integrated program so getting it to run would probably make ANYTHING else run besides.

1. Get latest Wine sources from here
2. Search for MsiDatabaseGenerateTransform in /dlls/msi/msiquery.c
3. Change ERROR_CALL_NOT_IMPLEMENTED to ERROR_NO_DATA
4. Compile your Wine
5. Download winetricks by following command
6. Install required components by following command
sh winetricks dotnet30 windowscodecs
It will take some time because winetricks will download all above components
