HowTo / Notes

HOWTO

Beginning with Wine 1.3.9, mfc42 is needed for the installer to complete. ­­You can install it with winetricks.

Guidelines for Submitting Test Reports
  1. Specify exactly which edition of Office 2000 you tested (Standard, Pro, etc.) This is crucial--bugs that affect one edition may not affect others.
  2. Specify exactly what type of install you tested (Typical, Custom, Minimal, etc.)
  3. Limit your report to the installer only. Reports on the performance of individual apps should be filed under their respective AppDB entries. Problems with running any of the apps should only be mentioned if it is clear that it is due to a problem with the installer.
  4. If you used any overrides during the install, please list them and explain exactly what problem each override was needed to solve.
