After installing install-crossover-pro-7.1.0.sh 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

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.
Please Note: This Forum is for non-application specific questions relating to installation/configuration of CrossOver. All application-specific posts to this Forum will be moved to their appropriate Compatibility Center Forum.
CrossOver Forums: the place to discuss running Windows applications on Mac and Linux
We're rebels. We're misfits. But mostly, we're software liberators. And we're very, very good at what we do. We have to be. Lots of developers work with open source, but only a tiny fraction of those are good enough to get software that was designed for one platform to work on another one. We invented CrossOver software - a unique approach to cross-platform compatibility that does not require dual-boot or another OS license. We launched PortJump to help app and game developers broaden their market beyond Windows® users. And we launched ExecMode to help organizations solve really ugly technical challenges.
