HowTo / Notes


winetricks -q ie8 d3dcompiler_43

Set override for native "mshta.exe" with winecfg or by executing the following command:
wine reg.exe ADD HKCU\\Software\\Wine\\DllOverrides /v "mshta.exe" /t REG_SZ /d "native,builtin"

Assuming CD is mapped to d: in Wine, the CD autorun launcher can be started using the following command. Not strictly necessary since setup.exe can be started directly from the CD using winefile, etc.

wine C:\\windows\\command\\start.exe /d d:\\ d:\\autorun.exe Launch.hta
