Hello Mike, thanks for answering. When the install stop, you can press the cancel button and the
installation abort, so the install can process the events in the form. When abort, i can run regedit
without problems, so i think that the problem is not regedit. Today probed with IE5 & IE5.5 and
nothing, i can't install IE.
Any others ideas?
P.D.: I compiled & installed wine using root account, and run wine with an user account, very
restringed in privileges, so the user don't have permission for write in the wine installation
directory. I can run other programs but can not install IE so wine installation is not problem, i think.
