.exe files execution in Ubuntu with Wine

First you need to install wine to get it through:
sudo apt-get install wine

Steps to get Internet Explorer are:

1. Open winetricks (Applications->wine->Winetricks)
2. Choose the option, “Select the default wine prefix” (confusing to me since I don’t know what a prefix is and it sounds like I’m doing something that will be the default for everything in wine)
3. Click “OK”
4. Choose option, “Install a Windows DLL or component”
5. Click “OK”
6. Now choose IE6, 7, or 8 from the list and check the checkbox
Note: Choose one option at a time as wine need to restart after each install.
7. Click “OK”

After installation it will ask for “restart”, this will not restart your system but restart the “wine”.

You also get some error messages, just click on OK.

From now on, if you need to run the installed program then go to Applications -> wine -> Browse C: Drive -> Program Files -> Internet Explorer -> Run “iexplore.exe” with “wine”

So, would you ever say that you can not run Internet Explorer on Linux? 🙂


Step:1 Go to Terminal and type for Wine Tricks installation 
             sudo apt-get install wine
Step:2 ofter install Wine then type for IE8 installation
             winetricks ie8
Step:3 type this for opening IE8 in Ubuntu
             wine ‘C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore’
