Hi, i tried help this dude on IRC channel getting an application to run called
MegaSpoof. Even after creating fake registry key it kept complaining about
missing Internet Explorer. 
After looking through the +relay log i found this:
000d:Call KERNEL32.CreateProcessW(00000000,0034f428 L"c:\\Program
Files\\Internet Explorer\\iexplore.exe -Embedding",0000000
0,00000000,00000000,00000000,00000000,00000000,0034f7d8,0034f828) ret=77f1d75f
000d:Ret  KERNEL32.CreateProcessW() retval=00000000 ret=77f1d75f

In current wine a simple "wine "c:\Program Files\Internet
Explorer\iexplore.exe"" just fails , because we don't have that directory. After
manually creating it , and copy to /Program Files/Internet
Explorer/iexplore.exe, the application didn't complain anymore, and got further.

Question: do we need to mimic windows behaviour, and create that directory + put
wine's iexplore in it, or is the policy that in this case we just have to
download MS ie6, and install that (as the application suggested)
