You might be spinning your wheels on that - many win-apps will detect
vmware and refuse to run - even Windows virus applications will usually
detect vmware and go into hiding.

You might have better luck running Wine -

If you also have a licensed copy of the M$ dlls - you can set Wine
to pick and choose between the M$ dlls and the ones provided with Wine.
