Office 2007 Doesn't Work! Help!


I'm using Ubuntu 9.10, and I really need Office 2007 so I tried Wine 1.1.31.
After installing Wine, I used wintricks to get MSXML, VCRUN2005, then the installation started.
Everything seemed fine with the installation, but when I tried to run PowerPoint, there was no response.
I tried to run PowerPoint in terminal, then I got some error:

fixme:actctxarse_depend_manifests Could not find dependent assembly L"Microsoft.VC80.CRT" (8.0.50608.0)
err:module:import_dll Library MSVCR80.dll (which is needed by L"C:\\Program Files\\Microsoft Office\\Office12\\POWERPNT.EXE") not found

err:module:LdrInitializeThunk Main exe initialization for L"C:\\Program Files\\Microsoft Office\\Office12\\POWERPNT.EXE" failed, status c0000135

I'm sure that I did install vcrun2005, and it didn't work even if I reinstalled it.
Is there something wrong with the installation or just something I've neglected?
Please give me some advice.
Much appreciated!

Have you considered just using open office instead?

Thanks for the tip. Maybe I should try and older version.
I have OpenOffice but my colleagues are using MSO and I don't want to drive them mad with the *.odt ^_^

Maybe I'm missing something, but can't you just save to MS office formats with openoffice? Is there something special about a particular format you are using?

If you use MS Office 97/2000 formats (.xls, .doc, .ppt) instead of OpenOffice or newer MS Office formats, both OpenOffice and any version past MS Office 97 should be able to read and write them. Just do not use macros and try to stay off the more exotic styling at both ends, and you should be fine. Most things people use daily do work, but some things might not.

Because MS Office formats are Microsoft formats, they aren't 100% supported in OpenOffice. But what they don't tell is that the same applies to different versions of MS Office -- the new MS Office program versions might even say to you, when saving into the older MS Office formats, that some formatting may be lost.

Best way would be to deliver ready documents as dvi or pdf depending on what suites best (probably pdf), that way you can be pretty sure they work at the other end.

The problem has been solved!
Here is my solution:
Install wine
Install vcrun2005, msxml3, scripting host
Install MSO
Run winecfg: set riched20.dll and usp20.dll to "native", choose "Windows XP". (Do not choose Windows Vista or you'll be told "dlls not found")

Thanks for your help, guys!

Yeah, that's why I need MSO. I need to design beautiful PPTs with animations.

so save it as a .doc or .pdf problem solved.

for MS Office 2k7 just VMWare and install windows, and run it that way.


[edit to add] i should of scrolled further down the page. for power points OOo works just fine too and unless you are doing major animation or macros you should not lose to much formatting if any at all.
