"IOPL not enabled" error trying to run Wine


Hi all-

I just installed Wine 0.9.2-1 on my Fedora Core 4 (2.6.17-1.2139 kernel) dual-booting laptop, and when I try to run excel.exe or winword.exe from the XP partition, I get a little error window that says "IOPL not enabled" and when the window is killed, my terminal says:

fixme:actctx:QueryActCtxW stub!

...I've googled around looking for some answers (or at least some info), and I can't seem to find anything too terribly helpful...has anyone else run into this problem?

Any ideas/suggestions? I'd really like to get Wine working, so I never have to use windoze again!

Cheers!

Hi, I am having a similar problem and dont find any helpful info except that I dont get your fixme message.
Did you solve your problem in the meantime?

In my case it may have to do with the original windows actually not working properly,
or/and I not using wine correctly.

wine "IOPL not enabled"

If you have the urlmon dll override active in the Libraries section - remove it (worked for me).
