    HowTo / Notes

    Available Install switches

    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.

    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.
