The readme file in
tells in "Readme for MPAB IDE.txt"
3. Minimum Required Configuration

The following minimum configuration is required to run MPLAB IDE:

* PC-compatible Pentium(R)-class system
* Supported Windows operating system (see section 2)
* 32 MB memory (128 MB recommended)
* 95 MB of hard disk space
* Internet Explorer 5.0 or greater for installation and on-line Help

I had that problem with Atmel AVR-Studio too. So I installed winetools,
wine-20041019, ie and the avrstudio.
