Selected Test Results (selected in 'Test Results' table below)

What works
Installation works through winetricks. The exact install procedure is clunky. See the winetricks script under load_ie7() for details. They unregister wine's IE, change overrides, remove fake DLLs, put in a dummy catalog file, remove the Z:/ drive and install. Winetricks does all this, so it is not really necessary to do anything, just made a fresh .wine folder, ran "winetricks ie7" and sat back.


What does not
Crash occasionally when resizing windows, accessing history. Some sites, namely http://anch.org crashes. Rudimentary JavaScript sort of works.


What was not tested
Anything beyond using it to check the layout of some key sites.

Internet Explorer 7

If you want to run Internet Explorer 6 with the rendering engine from version 7, follow the instructions, or use beta options of ies4windows script.

Note: ies4linux is NOT supported by Wine.  Report bugs using their script to their maintainers.


 
HOWTO - inprogress
To install, use
  winetricks ie7
The install seems flaky, so if it hangs or crashes, try it again.

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.
