Been experimenting with CX to see if I can get IE6 running on my mac so that I can login to a website for work. The native version does not work and it looks like the website is using a lot of ActiveX and DHTML. Has anyone gotten IE6 to install in an winxp bottle? Whenever I attempt this, IE never shows up in my applications list. Was going to try and get IE6 going and maybe try install .NET. Any success here? When I install IE6 into my win98 bottle, I still have problems with the website so not exactly sure what it is looking for yet. Anyone have any trouble with DHMTL? I know this is not specific... I'll see if I can find some of the functions they are trying.
AH got java installed. Just downloaded it and installed it as "unsupported software" it seemed to work just fine. Unfortunately, my website woes still persist. Appears ActiveX is not working and not sure if that will ever work under CX - thoughts?
I've found Crossover seems to have a 1 in 5 chance of running an ActiveX component, and if it doesn't run it the first time it's basically not going to run it at all. There's one hidden package in Crossover called the MFC libraries which I've been told you can install into the same bottle as IE and it will help with ActiveX, but I've never seen a change in the times I've asked people to try it.

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.
