Trying to install the demo from the downloaded exe results in a blank screen. To fix this you'll need to use Sun Java rather than the built in one.1. Download and install JRE from http://jdl.sun.com/webapps/download/AutoDL?BundleId=10778
2. Extract the contents of FM2009 setup exe to a folder. Browse into the extracted folder to windows\resource\ and delete the jre folder.
3. Run the setup from windows\Setup FM2009 Demo.exe
1. Grab the winetricks script from here -> http://wiki.winehq.org/winetricks
2. Open up a console and cd to where the winetricks script was downloaded to.
sh winetricks win2k sh winetricks vcrun2005 sh winetricks winxp sh winetricks vcrun2005sp1 directx9

Notes (from the winetricks page)
winetricks is a quick and dirty script to download and install various redistributable runtime libraries sometimes needed to run programs in Wine.
Note: Although using winetricks may be very useful for getting some programs working in Wine, doing so may limit your ability to get support though WineHQ. In particular, reporting bugs may not be possible. See Reporting bugs after you have used Winetricks.Note: Some of the packages listed below may not work well with older versions of Wine. As always we recommend you use the latest version of Wine.
