Dan Kegel announced a new release of winetricks version 20091125. Below is a copy of the email Dan sent to the wine-devel mailing list. The highlight of this release is the inclusion of the ie7 verb, now with just a couple mouse clicks you can install and have Internet Explorer 7 running on your favorite UNIX Operating System.

Also Louis Lenders sent a suggestion about fixing a MDAC bug in winetricks..

Could it be possible to "fix" mdac as well?  Because of wine now having a more
or less stubbed oledb32.dll, apps that need mdac don't run properly anymore.
Simple solution is to set oledb32 to native, before the mdac installer is
started, (and leave it to native afterwards) Could that be added to winetricks?     Digg This!     Furl     Google     Seed Newsvine     Reddit     Slashdot     Stumble It!     Technorati     Yahoo MyWeb
