HowTo / Notes

HOWTO

Installation

­MSIE 1.0 expects Windows 95, so you need to set Wine to Win95 mode in winecfg.

Then, you need to create a link called rundll.exe in system32 and link it to /usr/lib/wine/rundll32.exe.so.

$ ln -s /usr/lib/wine/rundll32.exe.so ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32/rundll.exe

You should now have a working Internet Explorer!

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.
