Update: Forget Wine. Virtualbox from Sun is free and far superior. You can run Ie6, Ie7, Ie8. You’ll need to go to the following page and follow the instructions. It’s important that you read down the comments to get everything set up as needed.

Main article, and comment.

If you get a blue screen of death on start up you will need to start safe mode by (frantically) hitting F8 at Windows boot and choosing safe mode. Once in safe mode run regedit and change Start value to ’4′ for the following then restart windows:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Processor

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Intelppm

  1. It works for me.
    Thanks a lot. :)

  2. it worked for me
    but no icon
    and the menu is missing
    and it crashed easy

  3. hey.. is there a way to install IE7?

  4. launches internet explorer just fine, but i don’t get the top bar on ie with “file”, “edit”, “tools”,etc. i need to get to “internet options” to install a security cert to access the one site i need ie for. thanks for your help.

  5. Doesn’t work. Won’t install IE6. Though I am stuck with all the junk packages downloaded to my system.

    Wonderful….

  6. Any way to get that top menu? It’s a pretty important menu and it totally gimps the functionality of the browser without it…

  7. It worked for me. Thanks a lot.

  8. Oh.. I don’t see the top bar as well. But thanks anyway.

  9. very interesting since IE4LINUX have been abandoned, thanks ;)

  10. Sweet, this is brilliant

  11. Without the menu and address bars, IE is pretty much useless.

  12. Very good. Made steam mostly usable, and other assorted things that rely on internet explorer as well.

  13. I get an error when trying to start it.

    $ wine ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Internet\ Explorer/iexplore.exe

    wine: cannot find ‘/home/myuser/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Internet Explorer/iexplore.exe’

  14. I realized that it was installed under Archivos de Programa because the OS is in Spanish. However, now when I execute IEXPLORE.EXE I get a dialog box that asks if I want to set IE as the default browser. I have tried answering yes and no but I always get this:

  15. It is really buggy, most of the buttons work but when I tried to type my pword in gmail it said the set i tto allow coolies, when I tried it rashed, again,

    The graphics are very good but its too buggy to use.

  16. It works fine for me too.
    All of the menus and address bars show up OK.
