Installing Microsoft Office 2007

To install Microsoft Office 2007 the first thing you will need to
  1. After you have a copy of CrossOver Games on hand install it.
  2. Then go to ~/cxgames/lib/wine and copy the to ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32
  3. you will need to re-name the pointer rpcrt4.dll that is currently in ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32 to *.bak
  4. Re-name the to rpcrt4.dll
  5. While your already in /system32 re-name msxml3.dll also to *.bak
  6. The next thing to do is run winecfg again and set msxml3.dll and rpcrt4.dll to "native windows" select save and exit.
  7. You will now need to Install Microsoft XML Parser (MSXML)3
  8. The easiest way to do this is to download winetricks and do the install via the winetricks script.
  9. You might need to mount your Office 2007 CD with the option -o unhide. This will avoid having problems with hidden files during installation.

Mount and cd to your disk and start the install.

mount -t iso9660 -o unhide /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom0
$ cd /media/cdrom0
/media/cdrom0$ wine setup.exe
1. Regarding WINE --instead of download and installing, follow the installation through packagemanager. But package managers has too old wine versions.
see this link -- latest version of WINE
If your WINE is not the latest version, then go to this link and add repositories if needed. INSTALL latest WINE through packagemanager.
2. Regarding Cross Over Games-- Trial version is enough.
3. Access, Groove, Outlook express are not working.

    ewwwww, evil proprietary thingy, it doesn't even meant to exist, neither in unix nor in real!!! >:-[
    i can only imagine it will work much worse than notepad++, which heavily loads system when you just type text there... and you have to wait for it to appear in window for 0.05-0.2 seconds.
    why would we possibly need that $%!& when we have OpenOffice?
