      How to install MS Internet Explorer 7, 8 or 9?


      I have been testing the guides on Ubuntu 12.04 and it doesn’t seem to work… using winetricks you can download and “install” the needed files but when running ie8 using wine it starts to load but i get an error:

      “The program iexplore.exe has encountered a serious problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.”

      After searching on the net i found this comment:

      “What are you trying to achieve? Just browsing? For that, you might be better off with firefox, chrome/ium, or opera. But if you need to use it, then go to , find the ubuntu link/commands, and download play on linux. then open it up, and hit the install button. Then (on the window that pops up) hit on internet, then find whatever version of IE you want. Follow the easy install guide, and use it. Should work, more or less. If you are gonna use it to check website compatibility or something, then you might be best off installing it in virtualbox

      You can try it yourself but there’s no garantee it will work… Good luck and have fun!
