What works

Word runs and displays properly using the fix given below.

What does not

Word crashes after clicking the New Document option (bug 45371) and hangs while loading a document.


To work around the black screen issue, which isn't fixed even with the HKCU/Software/Wine/Direct3D/MaxVersionGL=0x30002 fix, I used the following workaround from here:

Create a DWORD named HKCU/Software/Wine/Direct2D/max_version_factory and set it to zero.

What was not tested

Most functionality.

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Intel
  • Driver: open source
