What works

Used the "Click to Run" web installer for HUP ("home use program").  Installer comes up and says it's "Preparing", gets to about 68% (got the same results on 32-bit).

What does not

Install fails with "A problem was encountered" and then hangs.  I have to manually kill the process to exit.


What was not tested

Could not get installation to complete.

Hardware tested

  • Driver:

Additional Comments

Also tried again after uninstalling Mono, but from what I've read x64 .NET packages don't install in Wine. Got the same results.

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.

Is it really 64bit installation or only 64bit bottle?

Actually 64bit installation requieres NDR64 that is not implemented, so how you did get to it works?
Any status update with Wine 2.0?

No one has any updates to this after the release of Wine 2.0? It's supposed to work now but in my own attempts it is not running. Not sure if some extra components are needed or tweaks in winecfg.

I made some progress trying various tweaks. It's possible some of the issues are unique to the drivers for my graphics hardware (AMD GPU), as some of the internet search results suggest some nVidia users running proprietary drivers have had success getting Office 2013 to work.
