HowTo / Notes

Installing with the Blizzard Downloader

You will need mshtml.dll and wininet.dll from internet explorer 6SP1

I got mine using the latest version of ies4linux

Copy them to ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32

Use the libraries tab in winecfg to set them both to native

Downloading and installing should now work
