Additional Comments

Tried uninstalling Mono as some suggested, then running the installer, same issue. Also, tried uninstalling Mono, then installing dotnet35, dotnet40, and dotnet45 (tried each in succession on a fresh prefix every time, with WINEARCH=win32, and also tried various Windows versions, including Windows 7, 8.1, and 10), same problem. Winetricks also could not install dotnet35 and dotnet45, it tries to install dotnet20 which conflicts during install.

HowTo / Notes

Guidelines for Submitting Test Reports

 

  1. Test in a clean wineprefix, using plain Wine. 
  2. Specify exactly which edition of Office you tested (Standard, Pro, etc.). This is crucial--bugs that affect one edition may not affect others.
  3. Specify exactly what type of install you tested (Typical, Custom, Minimal, etc.)
  4. 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.
  5. If you used any overrides during the install, please list them and explain exactly what problem each override was needed to solve.
  6. Test reports that do not follow these guidelines will be rejected.

Where is the HKCU\Software\Wine\Direct3D\ entry?

I just managed to install office 2013 with the help of this entry! Thanks a lot!
But when i run Word I also entcounter the black window problem. I searched out fot the HKCU\Software\Wine\Direct3D\ reg entry but i couldn't even find the Direct3D entry anywhere. Am I missing something?

Besides: I used playonlinux to install office 2013 but before i did the installation auf the setup.exe i installed msxml4 followed by msxml6. This did the job for installation....

Thanks anyway cool job!

Best Benjamin.

Really strange problem: With msxml6 installed, no product key works anymore!
by Tormen on Friday March 24th 2017, 13:39
Hi,

It seems really bizzarre, but I tried it several times:

With the trial version (both German (de-de) and English (en-us)) downloaded from
www.microsoft.com/de-de/evalcenter/evaluate-office-professional-plus-2013
And mount the img file OfficeProfessionalPlus_x86_en-us.img to /mnt/iso.

When I create a fresh WINEPREFIX, set it to win7 and then install winetricks msxml6 and then run the setup, like so:

mkdir -p /virt/wines/ms.office2013
WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=/virt/wines/ms.office2013/ winetricks settings win7
WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=/virt/wines/ms.office2013/ winetricks msxml6
WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=/virt/wines/ms.office2013/ wine /mnt/iso/setup.exe

The behaviour of the setup changes!

It starts with first asking you to enter a product key.
And no matter what product key I entered, they all never worked (even though they should).

Without installing the msxml6, I saw a bunch of xml related messages in the output when launcching the setup, but in this case the setup right away offers to configure and install ms office!

Is that logical that with the msxml6 installed, this would then actually /break/ something ?
If helpful, I could provide debug output and/or file a bug report.

Thanks a lot in advance for any feedback!

Tormen
