Microsoft Office 2007 Does not work properly in Wine 1.4
Microsoft Office 2007 Does not work properly in Wine 1.4,
I can install it in Zorin (Ubuntu-based),
but when I run it,
like Winword,
it launched,
but when I try to save file, it crashed.
I has installed necessary dll files with winetricks,
but still failed.

My Linux is 64 bit.
dotnet20 is not supported.
msxml6 also can't be installed.

I'd suggest Virtualbox for Windows Office Suites.

Instruction from certain forums says it should work. :(

The relevant source should be the WineAppDB, where the Word version from Office 2007 only gets a silver rating, which means that parts are not working of working correctly. If you have to use Windows software the obvious solution is to use it in Windows (either VM or dual-boot), otherwise switch to open source software like LibreOffice or

+1 obvious isn't it.

If you MUST use the OLD VERY OLD MS office 2007 and NOT the current MS office 2012 or the bit older 2010


use OpenOffice3.6 or LibreOffice 3.6

If you insist on using Microsoft Office (any version for that matter) i would recommend the use of PlayOnLinux.

Office 2010 (32 bit version) works very smooth under that, 2007 would probably do aswell if i had a install cd of that.

What PlayOnLinux does is create a 1 program specific WINE enviroment with all the dependencies of just that one program. So no conflictions between windows stuff.

(o ps, tested the last version under Ubuntu 12.10 64bit. So 64bit Ubuntu based should (in theory of course) work)

Are you using a 64 bit wine installation, perhaps?

I've got Office 2007 into Wine and it works very well. Are you sure you've got all the necessary dll?
In my case, I selected Windows Version as Windows Vista from the Applications Tab and I overrode two dll files rpcrt4.dll and msxml3.dll from Libraries tab, 'cause they must be native windows.

I am using 64bit Linux, Ubuntu based distro.

posix04 12-08-2012 06:07 AM

I'm using Ubuntu 12.10 64bit. I think there isn't any important difference between mine and yours distribution.

414N 12-08-2012 06:24 AM

If that was meant to be an answer to my question, then it's wrong.
What I asked was: is your installed wine a 32 bit or a 64 bit one?
This should answer why dotnet20 and msxml3 aren't supported, as you said in your second post...

future_computer 12-08-2012 06:57 PM

it is wine 64bit

414N 12-09-2012 02:51 AM

Then try to switch to a 32 bit wine installation (you'll need to install some 32-bit libs as well) if you don't really need to run some 64-bit only Windows programs.
