A couple of weeks ago I managed to do a fresh install of IE6 and other apps, which went fine - this was with approx. wine-0.9.8 or thereabouts. I used the latest sidenet configurator (Jan 06).

However, now I'm updated to wine-0.9.12 (may not have actually used it at each version in-between) and something seems to have gone grievously wrong. Whenever I try to open IE6 I get a popup saying that "This application is requesting an ActiveX browser object" and inviting me to install the "Mozilla ActiveX control". If I decline, my IE6 window opens blank. If I go ahead and install, this seems to work, but IE6 crashes on launch.

I haven't made any other config changes, so I assume this is some type of upgrade to wine. Where can I get more background info on this, and more to the immediate point, how do I clobber the bloody thing? I've tried another reinstall, but after the IE6 install the same thing still happens.

Dagnabit, this is getting on my wick now. I just learned it means no help-files will open either.

Is there some way this Mozilla ActiveX thing can be totally blocked from interfering? I wouldn't mind if the thing worked, but I can't make it work at all. Make it go AWAAAAY!

Havin_it,

I'm running into the exact same issue. I notice that the activeX control is coming from [url]winehq.org[/url]. So I'm assuming that the latest wine update breaks ie6 (hence the blank screen) and that the activeX control is supposed to be a fix. But ie6 is crashing now on startup.

sucks...

Sorry, meant to post back about this yesterday. I did manage to get it working after careful reading of the appdb material about IE6. There's been a patch (for us it was added around wine-0.9.10 I think) that stuffs up the install of IE. (The symptom is a series of error-dialogs about dlls not registered at the end of the install.)

These bugs explain what is wrong - it pertains to the development of a builtin version of IE.
http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=4975
http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=5087

What I did:
1) Remove old .wine dir
2) Edit /usr/share/wine/wine.inf to remove these lines (in the FakeDlls section):
Code:
shlwapi.dll
winhlp32.exe,winhelp.exe
crypt32.dll

3) run winecfg
4) Apply the ie6_overrides.reg file from the appdb page: "wine regedit ie6_overrides.reg"
5) Acquire mfc40.dll (can't recall where I got this but Google is your friend :) ) and place in ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32. The one I got was zipped with msvc40.dll so I chucked that in too for good measure, don't know if it matters though.
6) If you already have a collection of Windows fonts, symlink ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/fonts to the dir where you keep them (or copy them there) - this avoids teething probs with installers
7) Acquire and install dcom98.exe
8) wineboot
9) Acquire and install ie6setup.exe
10) wineboot

@unclecharlie: you could try the edit to wine.inf with your existing .wine dir, it might work without reinstall. Here's hoping! Probably advisable to get mfc40.dll as well, if you haven't already.

Havin_it,

Thanks for the info. Unfortunately, removing my .wine directory isn't an option. I've got quite a few apps installed into wine and I REALLY don't want to start over. I did already remove the mentioned lines from the fakedlls section of my wine.inf file. I'll probably just grab the ie6_overrides.reg file and try to reinstall ie6 into my existing wine setup.

I'll post back to this thread if I get it working...

o.k. that totally worked...
All I did was load the ie6_overrides.reg and then reinstall ie6 and it works fine... ( I already had mfc40.dll and dcom98.)

Thanks for the help,
Charlie

I followed these steps:
1. emerge wine
2. install WineTools
3. remove offending lines from /usr/share/wine/wine.inf
4. run wt and let it create fake windows directory
5. download ie6setup.exe, ie6_overrides.reg, DCOM98.EXE, and mfc40.dll
6. install ie6_overrides.reg, DCOM98.EXE and mfc40.dll
7. wineboot
8. install ie6
9. wineboot

When I launch IE, it loads fine. It even opens msn.com and loads most of it. However, at just about the end of the page load, it crashes with this output in the console:
Code:
err:shell:ReadCabinetState Initializing shell cabinet settings
err:rebar:REBAR_WindowProc unknown msg 200b wp=00000000 lp=71180f00

Hm, that's the same output I was getting when launching IE before the reinstall. Interesting that the builtin iexplore.exe (in system32 dir) is mentioned near the end...

The main difference in your steps is you used winetools, whereas I just did it manually with winecfg. My observation about winetools and sidenet is that although often they work perfectly, they don't keep pace very closely with changes in wine development, so they do tend to be broken a lot of the time, especially just now with such big changes taking place.

On a sidenote, one of the bugreports above mentions that the builtin iexplore should work more reliably within a few weeks when they finish the native advpack.dll - it'll be interesting to see if they are as good as their word.

That'll be good to see. Oddly enough, the ie6setup.exe that I downloaded kept crashing part way through the install; I had to use the one inside of WineTools to get it to finish correctly.
Now I just have to get the IETab extension working in firefox....

I've installed IE6 using the exceptionally easy IEs4Linux (v2.0 beta4) over Wine v0.9.11 and I'm trying to get a digital certificate to my office. They're using the MS Cert Server and when I navigate to the site in order to enter my info for the cert I get this nasty :evil: MS IE6 pop-up window error:
Code:
An unexpected error (0x800700EA) occured while getting the CSP list.

Anybody else able to get digital certificates working in IE6/Wine?

I had the same problem. But for me ie6_overrides.reg was enough, I need no re-install of IE6.

I'm having various probs with other apps now. What d'you suppose would happen if I just removed the WHOLE FakeDlls section? Serious question!

Sure, but there seems to be a bug in it that doesn't allow you to install digital certificates :( . 00GENT00 seems to have gotten digital certificates working, but I haven't tried his suggestion yet. The ies4linux author responding to my bug report with "no idea." :(

thanks, I did this and now I can run ie6 but how do I install support programs?

some sites have video windows that don't shown anything. it seems I need to install something but I don't know how really.
I am completly new to wine, that is why I searched and ran your script.

Which by the way needs to be run in X.
I was doing most of the install via ssh and I tried it and got nothing at first....

I have a similar problem to rpmohn, above.

Could someone, please, give a recipe how to install ie6 over "stock" wine, with good result.
I had a working verson of ies4linux but it failed after upgrade of wine (emerge -uDp world). I have one important application I need, where the service provider requires ie6 and no ohter browser or operating system than w2k or XP (which is very unfortunate). My problem is that ies4linux get ie6 installed but can not cope with my application (and I can not figure out why at this point) and the tips in this thread seem to be outdated.
Please help, someone.

Sounds like a service provider that needs introducing to a clue-by-four(tm).

Personally, I've pretty much lost patience with wine lately. They have high ideals and are achieving interesting things (I guess), but seem to be breaking an awful lot of apps along the way. I'm unable to use Dreamweaver MX anymore because of something they must've done with the PNG handling, and Fireworks and Freehand aren't as stable as they were.

They are in the process of introducing a 'simulated' IE6 into wine, so to avoid problems I'd roll back to about 0.9.10 if I were you. I posted a howto a while back in this thread which should work with that version.
