What does not
Installer refuses to install claiming there is a newer version of IE already installed.
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.
If you are using IEs4linux, please report all bugs to ie4linux's creators.
