I can't seem to get this to install - period. I keep getting this error message:

"Setup has detected a newer version of Internet Explorer already installed on this system."

I have no idea how to fix it. I can install Internet Explorer on WINE outside of PlayOnLinux, but there seems to be something about adding in PlayOnLinux that makes it think I already have IE8 installed. I have no idea why. Any ideas on how to fix it?

NEVERMIND! IE8 stopped installing on the normal WINE as well. I have no freaking idea what's going on at this point.

Hello all,

I'm trying to use IE8 on PlayOnLinux on Arch Linux. But the problem is that I'm behind a proxy server ... and until know I couldn't connect to the internet or to the intranet.

I've the environment variables correctly set and I can browse the Internet using the default IE8 "winetricks browser" (but it doesn't work for Intranet sites either).

I've the proxy server set on playonlinux gui and I've tried to edit directly on windows registry of the playonlinux installation ... but with no success.

Could you please help?

wine 1.9.17-1

winetricks 20160724-1

playonlinux 4.2.10-1
Linux hostname 4.7.2-1-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Sat Aug 20 23:02:56 CEST 2016 x86_64 GNU/Linux

 

 

 

 

Thanks in advance.

It crashes when you go to a website with SSL. Unfortunatly, the default homepage is set to https://winehq.org, which makes it crash just seconds after startup. This needs to be fixed soon. (P.S. I have Ubuntu 14.04 64-bit.)

I have encountered the same problem...Is there anyone who can help me out???I am from China, and my university's website required IE to login...
Thursday 14 August 2014 at 6:46 -
sorry for the wating. Select IE on the application list and press on the "debug" button. A new window should open and IE should launch. After the crash, look in the window. You should see the log ;)

@Tutul I could not see a Debug Button on the Application installation list. The only Debug option is on the List with the Installed software. But I could not use it with the installer it self to record the installation process.
Thursday 14 August 2014 at 18:27 -
Installations done use scripts that support integrated debugger are automatically logged, even if the debugger window is not opened.
Check Tools > PlayOnLinux debugger > Install scripts > Internet Explorer 8

To be honest, the only reason people ever install IE is not to actually browse with it, but because it is needed (as are it's dependencies) by certain programs to install and run. There really is very little reason to actually browse with IE, considering that you have native browsers. Unlike what most people say, between chrome and FF, even the most "IE ONLY" sites work fine. Even when I was told that nothing but IE works with whatever tool we were using at work, I used chrome or FF and 99% of the time it worked fine. :D

Or for web developers to test websites
Friday 15 August 2014 at 11:33 -
I was actually going to include it in there, but designing for IE8 is, well, insignificant for the amount of users still using it. Plus, I would want to test on an actual windows install (even a VM) to make sure it rendered natively, as the end-user would probably not be surfing through Wine. That is the only reason I did not include that particular.
Friday 15 August 2014 at 11:44 -
Well for customer designed website, I agree with you. But sometimes, you have companies that use old web apps for their intranet, and every client have only IE. (The contrary is also true...). I agree that at the end, you'll have to test with a VM ; but it can still be very useful to have wine to develop the "big part"
Friday 15 August 2014 at 11:46 -
Anyway, if people are crazy enough to use wine based IE8 as a default browser on Linux, I cannot do anything for them...
