microsoft office word 2003 help


Hi,

I'm running Microsoft Office 2003 on CrossOver Office Pro 5.0.1. I can't copy anything from an x-window or x-term into ms word 2003 without ms word 2003 crashing. On the crossover user guide they give this advise:

Code:
7.1.3.8.17. How do I copy and paste to and from my xterm?

By default CrossOver only uses the clipboard accessed by explicit operations via the edit menu or control keys. CrossOver does have a setting that allows pasting to an X application via the middle mouse button. With this setting CrossOver will also recognize selected text from an X application. You will need to enable support for this setting in the registry. To edit the registry for the current bottle, run the following command:

$ ~/cxoffice/bin/cxrun

Select the correct bottle, type in regedit for the command, run it and go to the following Key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\Clipboard and add the following line:

"UsePrimary" = "Y"
I understood this to mean add a new string value. So I added the string value UsePrimary = Y without using the quotations. The problem won't go away. Does anyone know what else I can do to fix this problem?

Is there arequirement you use MS Office 2003 ? I mean i work in an office where EVERYONE uses MS Office and I run Open Office on my windows machine (for testing purposes) and I have no trouble working with the MS Office documents (word, excel, powerpoint) ..

Just a thought.

I got it working. The tech support advised me everyone has this problem and directed me to change a few files. Problem solved!

By the way, ms office is so much better than open office. I'm glad I have it working.
