That would probably have been my message (if it was related to needing to create a cache file). It is no big problem, it just means that the History and Cookies won't work properly in IE.

I believe several functions in our implementation of WinInet are lacking. I believe they are one of InternetCrackUrlA/W and InternetCreateUrlA/W and also InternetReadFileExA/W.
In short, you will have to use the native WinInet for the moment. To do this, copy wininet.dll from a Windows machine and put it into your C:\Windows\System directory on your fake Wine drive.
Then run iexplore with:
WINEDLLOVERRIDES="wininet=n" iexplore
Or put the appropriate override in your config file (see elsewhere for details).

That should be fine as that is similar to what is on my system and IE works fine with the proviso above.
