Online-based install of Visual C++ features. Workaround (same as some apply for Windows) was done to get through installation being stuck at creating system restore point.
In the end showed error boxes in the end about "... has detected a configuration issue" and also "Invalid ACL" for some items on install summary page.
What does not
Visual Studio does not run after install.Running from console shows abort due to "Call ... to unimplemented function KERNEL32.dll.WerUnregisterRuntimeExceptionModule"
What was not tested
Visual studio itself
'winetricks -q dotnet46 corefonts win7' has to be applied for the installer to work.

Never run wine as root (su, sudo)! Wine doesn't require to be run as root!
You will screw your WINEPREFIX and possibly other things up. If you have run Wine as root you need to:
Again: Just run wine as regular user and all should be fine.
