This doesn't work for me either. It gets the setup
program to download the files (when set to win98) but
fails to actually install. This is the method I have
found works for me:
- Edit /usr/local/share/wine.inf and remove the
- Create a a fresh .wine directory. It is important
that you edit the .inf file first, as the wine.inf
file in .wine is generated using the file you edited.
I believe the file may sometimes be found in
/usr/share/wine/wine.inf as well.
- Change the Windows version to win98 using wincfg
- Use the following file to apply some DLL overrides:
(run regedit ie6_overrides.reg to apply it)
- Install native DCOM98 from here:
- rm .wine/drive_c/windows/system32/regsvr32.exe
- Put native mfc40.dll in your
.wine/drive_c/windows/system32/ directory. This isn't
needed for the install program to work, but after it
finishes copying files, it fails to load a .ocx file
with it. Get it from:
- run ie6setup.exe, get it from
- In the setup, choose a minimal install and uncheck
Internet Connect Wizard for the easiest results.
This is mostly taken from the howto on the AppDB page,
partly from a comment about wine.inf, and the .reg
file which I have rehosted was written by someone
else, but the file is no longer available on their
I did all those instructions myself here, with a fresh
install of wine-0.9.14, so it should (hopefully) work.
Also worthy of note is that the default page
(www.msn.co.uk) for me, crashes when it tries to load.
I found that stopping it whilst it is still
downloading, and changing the home page to something
else fixes the problem, as most other pages seem to
