The Wine versions below are known to have regressions that affect Office 2003. Do not try to install in them:
If you are using a version of Wine older than 1.8, upgrade to either the current stable or development release.
Make sure you have all dependencies of Wine installed, including winbind.
If you have 64 bit Wine installed, you must create a 32 bit wineprefix for Office 2003 using the WINEARCH=win32 environment variable.
No overrides are required to install Office 2003 Pro. Install as you would in Windows: insert the cd and run the installer. If the .exe installer crashes (bug 31942), install using the .msi file which should be located in the same
directory as setuppro.exe. The name of this file seems to vary by
version; files reported to work include pro11.msi and STD11.msi.
Once Office 2003 is installed, set the following overrides in winecfg:
It is not necessary to install these dlls, as Office installs its own version. These overrides should not be set globally unless Office is installed in a separate wineprefix. If other apps are installed in the same wineprefix as Office, set the overrides individually for Office apps.
The above overrides are needed for all Office 2003 applications. Check the AppDB entries for the individual Office applications for any additional, application-specific tweaks that may be needed.
Test reports that do not follow these guidelines will be rejected.
