Internet Explorer

Post by invisible kid » Thu Dec 03, 2020 10:29 am

I am trouble-shooting a battle.net login issue and for a sanity check I tried:

wine ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Internet\ Explorer/iexplore.exe

The default site it goes to is:

https://www.winehq.org/

It comes up with an error box:

There is a problem for the certificate for this site.
Do you want to continue anyway?

I can click "yes" to continue many many times and the site will load.

Does that confirm that it's working okay, or does that mean I need to install certificates or perform a related fix?

I am also getting error messages for:

[1206/111703.301:ERROR:dxva_video_decode_accelerator_win.cc(1397)] DXVAVDA fatal error: could not LoadLibrary: msmpeg2vdec.dll: Module not found. (0x7E)
[1206/111703.303:ERROR:dxva_video_decode_accelerator_win.cc(1405)] DXVAVDA fatal error: could not LoadLibrary: msvproc.dll: Module not found. (0x7E)

And this web page offered some info:
https://askubuntu.com/questions/651099/ ... -by-a-game

And on that page it's suggested to test by doing this:
wine ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Internet\ Explorer/iexplore.exe https://www.youtube.com/html5

Like I said I have to click past all the missing certificate messages, then it fails the html5 test too.

The posts states:
After all of this https://www.youtube.com/html5 should display H.264 and MSE & H.264 as supported on Firefox under wine.

So it looks like I might be affected by two potential issues that might be fixed by debugging this:
1. ssl certificates
2. missing msmpeg2vdec.dll

Issue solved. I had to poach debian file ca-certificates.crt and put it in /etc/ssl/certs. I did other stuff too, but it wasn't going to work without that.
