wine beta release - errors with MS Office


I am trying to run MS Office on the wine beta release. Word errors with a 'lock' error and excel errors in the path directories. Has anyone successfully gotten these packages to work? If so what did you use for dll configuration?

Thanks in advance - Dan

Use winex if you must use MSOffice.

FWIW: I run wine with no windows partitions and no windows dlls. MSOffice 2000 runs fine with the default configuration.

However: I don't use it anymore. Everything I need to do in MSOffice I can do by some other means.
