Spell your words out, please. And did you use the script from the playonlinux site??
http://www.playonlinux.com/en/supported_apps-3-0.html

Also, if this is a new installation, the latest is Fedora 17...and you really should install Libreoffice for Linux (which does 99.x% of what MS Office does, and is FREE), and avoid using Microsoft apps. Not only will they run slower, but you'll have problems once they DO run...you're asking the system to run things it's not designed to run, and the app to run somewhere that it wasn't written for.
