    HowTo / Notes


    (Updated 2012-12-26)

    Install to a clean wineprefix following the instructions in the Microsoft Office (Installer only) entry. After installing set riched20.dll to native to get around bug 14980. Do not install it with winetricks; Office installs its own version.

    Window Resizing Issues

    Workarounds for bugs 23805 and 30587:

    Solution 1: Run in an emulated virtual desktop. This is probably the easiest solution for most users.

    Solution 2: Uncheck "Allow the window manager to control the windows" in winecfg. The downside is that Word will no longer show up in the taskbar.

    Solution 3: (KDE users only) In System Settings, Window Behavior, do the following:

    1. Select Window Rules
    2. Click "New..." to create a new Window Rules
    3. Enter the description
    4. Window Class: Regular Expression: value *\b(winword.exe|excel.exe|powerpnt.exe)\b.*
    5. Check "Match whole window class"
    6. Check on tab "Size & Position"
    7. Check "Full screen": value Force, No
    8. Check "Ignore Requested Geometry": value Force, Yes
    9. Click Okay
