Make sure you operate on a clean 32-bit WINEPREFIX (~/.wine)!
Prerequisite installation by using 'winetricks' script
Winetricks will take care of all needed installation prerequisites and work around some problems.
$ wget http://winetricks.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/src/winetricks
$ bash winetricks dotnet45 corefonts
Set the Windows version to Windows 8.1 using 'winecfg' before running the installer.
Make sure you installed 'winbind' component with your distribution package manager.
This is needed for the -Zi option of the compiler, and other mechanisms that handle 'PDB' (Program Data Base) files.
$ aptitude install winbind (Debian)
$ sudo yum install samba-winbind (Fedora)

Again: Just run wine as regular user and all should be fine.
