I'm having problem installing Ms Office 2007 under Wine on AMD64 box
when I click the install button I get an endless list of errors in the
terminal, mainly to do with things being unimplemented. And the
progress bar *never progress*.
Have you tried renaming temporarily your ~/.wine to ~/.wine.old prior
to installing MS Office? Perhaps there's something in your current
~.wine profile messing it up. Renaming it will reset your Wine to the
defaults (a default profile gets re-created the first time you launch
Also, it all "may" depend on which flavor of Windows (XP/Vista/2008...)
you select in Wine Settings.
All other distros seems to be fine, as early as more than 2 years ago:
That was my attitude too, until I discovered that a freshly installed
Debian was fine too; it was with prolonged use that my Wine
installations got flaky -- just like real Windows! Although Wine "Is
Not an Emulator", it emulates Windows rather well. The need to
"reinstall your Windows OS" every 3 months or so is, therefore, a Wine
feature and not a bug. Luckily, a "reinstall" is so simple to do in
Wine: you just delete your ~/.wine profile et voila'.
That said, however, that's just my experience. Your mileage may vary.
Even more so seeing that you're using Squeeze/Sid whereas my experience
is strictly limited to Lenny.
