Notice

Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

Of course installing 3rd party browsers in WINE won't make any difference. If you can install/browse with them, that's because they will use 3rd party libraries like OpenSSL and have their own certificate stores which have no dependences on the underlying APIs provided by the OS.

All internet connectivity in JScript Panel and Spider Monkey Panel is through the xmlhttp ActiveXObject / built in windows certificate store which is entirely dependent on how updated the OS is. It doesn't necessarily have to be that way but that's the way all scripts are currently written. No one has gone out of their way with alternatives because no one cares about WINE enough.
I only try to used it to open links, didn't expect that solved the conection issues

I understand this, the program is for windows and is must be more convenient use the already existing tools of the OS.

It will be cool if it was different but linux users are a minority.

Until then the only thing that left is wait for a implementation in the wine side.

I suspect this would be servers being updated to block ye olde clients without modern TLS support. It's like Windows 7 is pretty useless out of the box until it's fully updated.

Sure it is  ;D

With ie8 you can forget about any https.or similar inside the prefix, even if you changes the keys in regedit ie8 always find the way to come back.

I even used a old 32 firefox installed inside wine to try to avoid ie8 but was a race lost before start

It's always required it. Perhaps you had a different WINE configuration? I see from the SMP thread, you're avoiding a 32bit prefix/IE8. That would probably fix it.

edit: i've not tried this script for awhile but I'm pretty it's required for last.fm too - definitely for images. bios are available via the web service/JSON but IIRC, WilB scrapes for extra info from the webpages.

Download images never worked in wine, at least for me, not even in the old times of first wsh or jscript panel.

A 32 bit prefix doesn't make any differences besides that is mandatory if you want to install ie8 verb.

But ie8 doesn't help with download images neither to get allmusic reviews. (I makes it right know and he gives "Biography Server: allmusic album review / biography: In Your Nature / Zola Jesus: not found Status error: 12157")

Sometime ago was necessary to even makes the panel works but with spider monkey and new wine versions is no more mandatory. The panel almost works in a default install without winetricks verbs. With wsh57, gdi+ and a key in regedit (AppliedDPI) you can use all complete samples, the cool album list and biography.

The only problems (in the "you can fix now" list) that left is the crash in right click and the allmusic data

But if you go the way of ie8 verb you can't download images anyway, allmusic doesn't works, the links in all the profile are linked to ie8 (and ie8 in wine doesn't open almost any page and get stuck all time) and some script like musicbrainz info doesn't works.

Is a no go that way.

And I had to use it a long time

https://hydrogenaud.io/index.php?topic=112914.msg975148#msg975148

In this allmusic worked, I know now where my download data comes from.

Yeah last modification of Fear Factory.txt 20 dic 2019, so around this time the panel stop downloading data.

The newest are from August 2020
