What works

Downloads correctly (up to 50%), fails during installation phase.

What does not

Installation fails at 58% after hanging at 100% for a couple of minutes.

Main installer window was black during the whole installation, but the try icon (on KDE) and the progress notification popup displayed correctly.


What was not tested

Hardware tested


  • GPU: AMD
  • Driver: open source

Additional Comments

Used a prelicensed web-installer downloaded from an organisation that sold their soul to M$.

While the installer hung at 58% these suspicous lines kept reappearing (probably an issue with wine's MSI support):

wine: Call from 0x7bc5be0c to unimplemented function RPCRT4.dll.NdrClientCall3, aborting
012d:fixme:ntdll:EtwEventUnregister (deadbeef) stub.

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.

How can this status still be garbage (confirmed myself also) when the press-release for Wine 2.0 specifically said it supported Office 2013?

Because this entry is for Office 2016, not 2013.
