    HowTo / Notes

    Important Note: HP provides native builds for Linux and Mac. These instructions assume that you're using the Windows build with Wine because you have a need for its features.
    • Create yourself a virtual room at the HP website. Be sure to create a URL key for the room, needed below.
    • Install MSIE6 with ies4linux to its default prefix, ~/.ies4linux/ie6
    • HP distributes gdiplus.dll, however winhttp.dll is not included - grab this file from a Win2k or later OS and launch winecfg :

    cp winhttp.dll ~/.ies4linux/ie6/drive_c/windows/system32/ && WINEPREFIX=~/.ies4linux/ie6 winecfg

      HP doesn't support Virtual Rooms on win9x since winhttp.dll and gdiplus.dll came later. Therefore, we'll make "win2k" our global version and restrict all native .dlls to MSIE, still allowing it to run as win98. IE serves a purpose in launching the application.

      • Using winecfg, set the default version to Windows 2000. Add iexplore.exe as an application, set its version to win98, and add a dummy placeholder library "xxxyyyzzz" for it on the Libraries tab. Apply changes and close.
      • Manually edit ~/.ies4linux/ie6/user.reg , replacing the "xxxyyyzzz" placeholder with the IE overrides (move them out from under the global [Software\\Wine\\DllOverrides] section). Save and quit.
      • Now launch your virtual room with MSIE :

      WINEPREFIX=~/.ies4linux/ie6 wine iexplore.exe
