Retail release January 29, 2013
This entry is just for testing the installer of Microsoft Office 2013 (aka Office 15) office suite.
Reports on specific programs included in Office 2013 should be submitted to their respective AppDB entries.
Office 2013 is available in 5 editions:
Followed the directions here: https://askubuntu.com/questions/879304/wine-2-0-says-it-supports-office-2013-how-do-i-actually-install-it
To fix the problem in PowerPoint (not enough memory), I added two overrides with winecfg in Library section: "riched20" and "usp10".
I've managed to install the SP1 service pack, it worked too. In version section in Word it changed to 15.0.4569.1506, so it went well.
In order to avoid features to be installed in the installation wizard you should use "n" letter in the drop menues, you can not see the options because it dissapears in 0,00001 seconds, but if you select with left click and press "n" you will see the red X mark. If it is a sub-feature, and there is not X option, you can use "i" instead (install at first use).
What does not
There are needed two overrides of libraries: riched20 and usp10. MSXML 6.0 was overrided too.
What was not tested
How to get updates working, it doesn't make any sense to have Office working if it is prone to vulnerabilities. I'm testing update software patchers like SUMO (standalone version), Avira or PatchMyPc with no success (SUMO doesn't detects the Office installation, the other two doesn't even starts).
In this way you can get your software running and safe, the history of MS Office 2013 patches is here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/officeupdates/update-history-office-2013 but you don't want to install all by yourself.
Try to do a clean installation, I had some problems when I use a Wine folder that was played a lot before. A clean one give me a smooth installation and use, tested:
Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access
