HOWTO
Winetricks Installation

The best way to install IE 6 is to use winetricks!

  1. Download winetricks
    wget http://kegel.com/wine/winetricks
  2. Let winetricks install IE6
    WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/.wine_ie6 sh winetricks -q ie6
  3. Start IE
    WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/.wine_ie6 wine ~/.wine_ie6/drive_c/Program\ Files/Internet\ Explorer/IEXPLORE.EXE


 
WARNING

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.


 
NOTE

If you are using IEs4linux, please report all bugs to ie4linux's creators.

installed correctly - issue with MS domain interconection
by floorripper on Tuesday September 27th 2011, 6:21
Hello,

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.

Do you know how to solve this issue?

What about VML ?
by biaib on Friday April 15th 2011, 9:34
using wine 1.2.2 on Ubuntu 10.10.

I tried to test a project using raphaelJS, and figured out all VML related libraries don't function.

examples here :
