I have never used method #2 successfully. I depend on Mike Hearn's 
script. This script adds DLLOVERRIDES to the AppDefault section of the 
config file.

Does IE6 actually start for you with the latest wine from cvs? Knowing 
full well that the installation methods may cause this difference, I 
have not been able to get IE6 to run since a patch committed on Sept 
27--#13938. Everything I have read indicates that things work better 
with a win98 environment. However, your comments indicate otherwise.

I also have not been able to use Mozilla ActiveX after I install it. 
There is another situation that I have identified. IE6 Help Engine 
worked with a native mshtml before patch #13475. I am currently 
generating logs with debug info to submit the results of my regressions 
to the developers' list.

I have learned that if a use a system.reg and a user.reg taken from wine 
compiled from source before 20040824 16:00:00 CDT in a version of wine 
compiled from the current cvs, IE6 and its Help Engine are fully functional.
