IExplorer 6 under Wine

    Lets say you've already installed this things:
  • wine
  • winetricks
  • wine_gecko
    Now you want to install IE6. First of all, let winetrick do some work:

winetricks corefonts vcrun6 wsh56 gdiplus msls31 riched20 riched32 tahoma

    Maybe, some of packages are extra, but nothing bad will happen if you'll install them. One more package you will need is this:

winetricks msxml3

    Winetricks will show an URL aks to follow if to download msxml3.msi package and to save it to

~/.cache/winetricks/

    After that you can repeat installation via winetricks.
   Next thing you'll need to do is to copy some dll-libs to your wine environment. They are:
  • msctf.dll
  • msimtf.dll
  • uxtheme.dll
  • msvcrt.dll
    Originally they are placed here:

C:\WINDOWS\system32

    Or here:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\dllcache

    You need to copy them here:

~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32/

    After counfigure your registy, placed  here:

~/.wine/user.reg

    Opet it in some text editor and find this section:

[Software\\Wine\\DllOverrides]

    There you can copy this content:

"browseui"="native, builtin"
"comctl32"="builtin"
"crypt32"="native, builtin"
"gdiplus"="native"
"hhctrl.ocx"="native, builtin"
"hlink"="native, builtin"
"iernonce"="native, builtin"
"iexplore.exe"="native, builtin"
"itircl"="native, builtin"
"itss"="native, builtin"
"jscript"="native, builtin"
"mlang"="native, builtin"
"mshtml"="native, builtin"
"msimtf"="native,builtin"
"msxml3"="native,builtin"
"riched20"="native,builtin"
"riched32"="native,builtin"
"secur32"="native, builtin"
"shdoclc"="native, builtin"
"shdocvw"="native, builtin"
"shlwapi"="native, builtin"
"url"="native, builtin"
"urlmon"="native, builtin"
"usp10"="native, builtin"
"uxtheme"="native,builtin"
"wininet"="builtin"
"wintrust"="native, builtin"

    You can do it using winecfg also. The result should be like this:


    Now IE can be installed:

winetricks ie6

    This command will download IE6 installator, prepare and launch it. The only thing you'll have to do is to click 'Next' during instalation process.
     The final result:
