DCOM98 for Windows 98: The installation program appears to be damaged or corrupted

After installing on my Linux box, I tried to install Internet Explorer 6 and got the following error while installing its dependency, DCOM98:

"DCOM98 for Windows 98
The installation program appears to be damaged or corrupted. Contact the vendor of this application."

Jack from CodeWeavers correctly identified that the solution was to completely remove ~/cxoffice and ~/.cxoffice with rm -rf (rather than the Uninstall program, which for me is located under Applications -> CrossOver) and then reinstall CrossOver.

I hope others don't have this problem, but if they do, that they find this post.


p.s. Here are some details about my system:

[pdurbin@beamish ~]$ lsb_release -a
LSB Version: :core-3.0-ia32:core-3.0-noarch:graphics-3.0-ia32:graphics-3.0-noarch
Distributor ID: RedHatDesktop
Description: Red Hat Desktop release 4 (Nahant Update 7)
Release: 4
Codename: NahantUpdate7
[pdurbin@beamish ~]$

I actually didn't have to go that far...deleting the 98 bottle (allowing Crossover to rebuild it on the next attempt) and trying the IE install process again did the trick for me. Of course, IE6 was all I had in my 98 bottle, so YMMV.
