IE5.5 (was:(no subject))

Thanks for the reply!

I tried the instructions on Frank's IE5.5 page, including copying all
the files and directories to my ~/.wine/fake_windows/ directory (except
jsnl.dll, which I could not find...)

I do not know if dcom95 exists somewhere in one of the directories that
I copied across, but I know that exactly the same thing happens when I
try to run IE on the Windows partition (instead of in fake_windows).

When I get home to my Linux machine I will try setting the connection to
a LAN connection. (Do I just go into Tools | Internet options and select
it there?)

Thanks again,

set your connection to lan or get crossover office as it supports IE 5.5
....... Did you install dcom 95 ? you have to have dcom 95 before
