wine + installshield

So I'm trying to install something in my fake windows directory via wine, and it's giving me an "object reference not set" error. I've looked this up, and I apparently need a file called stdole32.tlb from my windows partition... but I don't HAVE a windows partition. I've obtained the file from a windows machine just in case it works, and have tried a couple of things with it, but I'm a little lost.
Has anyone else run into this problem, and if so do you know how to fix it?


EDIT/UPDATE: got it working. Followed instructions here:

Well Mr "Breaking Radiation", and such a pretty colour you are too well done!

Good of you to post the path to the fix too - this will help others.
Would have been nice had you posted it as a reply to your original question though - that way it is removed from the zero-replies list.

Never mind, I'll post a reply and that will do the trick.

Good on yer mate.
