Selected Test Results (selected in 'Test Results' table below)
This note was originally added to IE Version 5, but may be relevant to all versions.
Don't run IE on an RW mounted DOS partition !
Pretty problematic directory renaming/corruption can happen.
This seems to happen if Wine doesn't have access to certain Windows registry keys.
Renames e.g. "Program Files" to "$!$!$!$!.pfr" and does other horrible things.
BTW, it does not only happen with IE, as it seems to be a generic Windows
Setup process of Explorer which is doing this, which can be launched
under multiple circumstances.
To be safe, use a backup copy only, i.e. copy all relevant windows files over
e.g. to an ext2 partition.

I have installed ie6, I had to change the line in the winetricks code like listed in previous threads. Normal internet pages are working. But when I have to connect to the internal company Web-pages which require Microsoft Domain authentication, it stops to work. I am not able to authorize myself with domain/username & password.
How to disable "Internet Explorer Script Error" windows

Does anyone know how to disable the "Internet Explorer Script Error" dialog windows of IE6?
I had to install it just for the Star Trek Online's launcher and I keep get this kinds of errors (probably because the webpage the launcher is showing has some html/javascrip code IE6 doesn't support), but since the launcher is working fine anyway I would like to ignore those errors.
filters not working

I've just installed ie6 with winetricks, to the list of NOT WORKING things we can add one more: opacity using microsoft's filter setting.
e.g. here: ende.com.pl opacity transitions are working under ie6/windows XP, and not working with ie6/wine
