MS Office Pro Plus 2010 I've not looked into the problem with Outlook as I don't use it very much. My methodology for installing was as follows: 1. Start with a new wine prefix 2. From winetricks, install dotnet20, msxml6, and corefonts 3. Using winecfg configure a library override for msxml --> Native 4. Run the MS Office 2010 installer from a mounted ISO (MS Office Pro Plus x86 2010) - I used a valid key and allowed online activation 5. The installer may hang for a while at the applying updates stage - leave it alone for a bit and it should complete ok. 6. Open winecfg again and configure overrides for riched20 and gdiplus --> Native 7. Run your Office app of choice!

These instructions assume you are familiar with the basics of using Wine and Linux, including running apps from the command line. If you are new to Wine and/or Linux, before proceeding further please familiarize yourself with the information in the FAQ, particularly the sections on creating a 32 bit wineprefix, running an installer, and using wineprefixes.
After installing, set riched20 to native, builtin in winecfg to enable Powerpoint to start and selection boxes to display correctly.
Office Professional Plus does not require .NET to be installed, but if it detects that it is installed, it will look for a machine.config file. This will fail on Wine versions without wine-mono installed (i.e., versions prior to 1.5.6).
The recommended solution is to install wine-mono. The instructions below are provided solely for those who are unable to upgrade to a version of Wine supporting wine-mono.
There are two ways to work around this without installing wine-mono:
Installing winetricks dotnet20 will also work around the bug; however, because that will install native dlls that may cause other problems, it is not recommended.
The above workarounds must be done before running the installer. If you do not, and the installer fails, you must delete that wineprefix and start fresh, as the rollback process leaves behind something that prevents subsequent attempts from succeeding, even with one of the workarounds applied. Note also that a rolled-back install leaves running processes that must be killed manually.
There are known regressions affecting the Office 2010 installer in the versions of Wine listed below. Do not attempt to install in them.
In addition, Office 2010 is not installable in any version prior to 1.3.9; this includes all 1.2.x versions.
1) Copy the CD content to a folder on your computer
2) Find the folder named "Standard.WW" (or ProPlus.WW or whatever your version name)
3) Inside that folder should be a file named config.xml.
4) Edit config.xml and make sure that it has the following:
Configuration Product="Standard" (or ProPlus)
PIDKEY Value="XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX" (use your actual serial key here)
Setting Id="AUTO_ACTIVATE" Value="1"
Each of the above lines in the config.xml file should be between angled brackets, which unfortunately can't be shown here because the AppDB will not display anything between angled brackets. If you are unsure how it should look, see bug 30033 for an example with the brackets.
5) Save the config.xml file and run the installer..
