LXer: Crossover Office 5.0 works with MS Office 2003!!!

Published at LXer:

I purchased the student edition of Microsoft Office 2003 back at the beginning of this year. I found that Wine and Crossover Office 4.2 would not run this version of MS Office. So I've been waiting for about ten months for the new version of Crossover Office. For those who don't already know this, Wine and Crossover Office are products that enable you to run Microsoft platform applications on a Linux machine. Wine is available from and Crossover Office is available at The two products are created in cooperation with each other in the same way that Sun Microsystems works on it's Star Office product and cooperates with There's another enabler for MS software on Linux made by Transgaming Technology called Cedega. It is available from Today I downloaded the 30 day trial version of Crossover Office 5.0 from Once I installed it I tried to install Microsoft Office 2003. After one false start where in invoked the wine excutable to install Office, and one false error message during the installation, the software was finally installed.
