Install winetricks (compile your own preferably) from http://wiki.winehq.org/winetricks.
Open terminal and type:
Install these packages:
comctl32, dcom98, dotnet11, dotnet20, mono20, gecko, jet40, mdac25, mdac27, mdac28, ie6, wmp9, native_mdac, allfonts, allcodecs
Be sure to install these in that order.
If a package gives an installation error, open up winetricks again and install the next one on the list instead. Be sure to install it afterwards though.
Navigate to the folder where you downloaded helium_2009.exe, and type:
If the installer fails, make sure you installed all the packages.
I haven't got it to run yet, but if you do, you'd might want to install the Access package from winetricks too.
Set up a MySQL server in your distribution, and use helium to connect to it via the Tools - Library - Management option.
Can anyone confirm the order of installation, and maybe packages that isn't needed?
