Version 6.0 (codenamed Aspen, after the ski resort in Colorado), was released in June 1998 and is the last version to run on the Windows 9x platform.
Each version of each language in part also settled to v6.0, including
Visual J++ which was prior v1.1, and Visual InterDev at the 1st release.
The v6 edition of Microsoft was the core environment for the next four
releases to provide programmers with an integrated look-alike platform.
This led Microsoft to transition the development on the platform
independent .NET Framework.
It tells winedbg to query process ids, filters out the target process, converts the PID to decimal and then starts winedbg in gdb proxy mode, attaching to target process and executing patch script.
This should work for all VC6 installers and even Embedded Visual C++ 4.x ones.
What does it do?
Basically it starts the installer under control of a debugger and the works around bug 5322 by in-memory patching execution flow.

Install MSDN on the VS6 wineprefix. When the installation program finish, copy hhctrl.ocx from Windows XP to your wineprefix system32 directory. Override hhctrl.ocx with "native,builtin", then MSDN will run normally. To enable the index, install ie7 using winetricks & copy itircl.dll from Windows XP to your wineprefix system32 directory.
