I don't think autocad 2004 runs in win98, and I would prefer to debug
Wines own MSI. (I don't particularly need to run the program, I would
just like to add support for it to wine.)

Didn't work in my case for some reason. anyway, I removed winetools,
so I'm back to the IE6 error (even before I get to the eula).

Can someone add +reg to ?

The installer seems to only read this key:
SOFTWARE/Microsoft/Internet Explorer/Version
(and also this one)

I have manually set the Internet Explorer Version key, but that
doesn't seem to fool the installer. Oddly, it reads these keys just
before I press the "install" button.
I will look into it tomorrow.
