I just went ahead and tried it

simply renaming it doesn't affect anything

however, deleting it does

so i guess my solution is to move the file outside of the usr/lib directory completely untill install is complete

tested this with notepad++, notepad2, premiumsoft's navicat and autoit

seems like this is the best method so far

I'm still not sure how crossover does it because their winemenubuilder.exe.so library is still intact

For now, im using 2 functions in my scripts

disable_wine_icons() and enable_wine_icons()

so if anyone has any better ideas, i can easily manipulate the script

Thanks again
