How about the attached patch? It adds registration code to iexplore.exe,
so user may run
$ wine iexplore -unregserver
or even better, just for sure:
$ WINEDLLOVERRIDES=shdocvw,iexplore.exe=b wine iexplore -unregserver
to unregister iexplore.
It would be wine specific as native doesn't support self registration in
An other option would be to put a separate section in wine.inf so user
could run rundll32 to unregister it, but IMO it is worse due to
complexity of the command.
