What works

Installation works without a problem. The splash screen and the window open up when running it through Wine.

What does not

Everything after you click to open it. After the splash screen and the Excel window shows up, it errors out saying something along the lines of it encountering a problem and prompts you to send an error report and/or close it. There is a check box to restart the program when you close it and it is checked by default. Upon restarting, it asks if you want to start in safe mode. Same thing happens. If you restart it again it asks if you want to run a detect and fix. If you give it the ok, nothing happens.

Workarounds

What was not tested

Basically everything due to not being able to get the program completely booted up.

Additional Comments

This is just to update the application database with the latest version of Wine. If there are ways to get around this issue, I don't have the knowledge to do so.

HowTo / Notes

Native alternatives for non-windows platforms
There are some good alternatives to this application that might exist for your platform. You'll find a list on the main page of this application.
HOWTO

(Updated 2012-07-13)

Follow the instructions in the Microsoft Office (installer only) entry for installing. After installing:

  • To use the thesaurus, set riched20 to native. 
  • Starting with ­1.1.38, set gdiplus to­ native, builtin. This override is not needed for earlier versions, as prior to 1.1.38 the default behavior was to favor gdiplus that was installed ­by the app itself. ­ ­ If using native gdiplus causes Excel­ to crash, the most likely cause is nonconformant ttf fonts installed on your system. (Ubuntu in particular is known to be afflicted.) Run winetricks fontfix to fix this.

It is not necessary to install either of these dlls, as O­ffice installs its own version. Do not set these overrides globally unless Office is installed in a separate wineprefix.
