I am replying to a message from August[0].

I am experiencing the same problem and am wondering, whether anybody has found 
a solution? My Wine version is the one in Debian testing (20050628) and I did 
the initial setup with the ies4linux script[1]. IE6 works fine, but when I 
start the MS Office setup I get the message posted below.

Thanks a lot,
