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.

Can not install Office 2016 Professional Plus (DE)
by Andreas on Friday February 9th 2018, 17:28

I am trying to install Office 2016 Professional Plus. From the microsoft page, I got an online setup, which tries to download office. This setup displays a tray icon telling me, that it downloads office, but never gets beyond 0% download status.
As this didn't work, I used a tool to download an ISO for Office 2016 Professional Plus. Executing the 32bit setup from there just leaves me with an error.
Can somebody tell me, what I am doing wrong?

Here is what I tried so far:
$ lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 17.10
Release: 17.10
Codename: artful
$ sudo apt-add-repository
$ sudo apt update
$ sudo apt install wine-stable
$ /opt/wine-stable/bin/wine --version
$ WINEARCH=win32 /opt/wine-stable/bin/winecfg
--> select riched20 and msxml6 library
--> Use Win7
$ WINEARCH=win32 /opt/wine-stable/bin/wine office/setup32.exe
--> Errorcode: 30175-4 (-2147467259)

Here is the output of wine when starting the setup from the ISO:

Thanks in advance!
RE: Can not install Office 2016 Professional Plus (DE)
by Andreas on Friday February 9th 2018, 18:00
If someone else has the same problem, here is the solution: I forgot to install the latest version of msxml6 and riched20 using winetricks ...
$ WINEARCH=win32 winetricks msxml6
$ WINEARCH=win32 winetricks riched20

After that, I could install Office 2016 with the setup.exe that was in the root of the ISO.

Note that the progress-bar during the installation is not visible. You simply see a window with various icons of word, excel etc.. When the setup is finished, the icons disappear and the office icon is displayed. Hit Return to close the dialog.

After the installation, I had to copy two DLLs, as stated in the "Test Results". In addition to this, I had to copy AppvIsvStream32.dll to ./Program\ Files/Microsoft\ Office/root/Office16/
Serious graphical glitches
by Jose Antonio on Friday February 9th 2018, 3:01
Hello, following your steps I've been able to install Office 2016 however:
1. At installation time, I only see a black window, not the installer splash screen. However, since the installation is fully automatic, it completes fine.
2. When running Office applications, I get serious graphical glitches, like all the blue space in the ribbon part of Word is black, instead of blue.

Using wine 3.1 it crashes.

Do you get this glitches? Is it to be expected?
RE: Serious graphical glitches
by Tristan on Sunday February 11th 2018, 19:10
1. I saw at least the tray icon with the %-status of the installation and partly the window with the app symbols. It vanished eventually though.
2. The graphical glitches occur for me too. You can try setting the HKCU\Software\Wine\Direct3D\csmt key to 0x1. That fixed it for me.
RE: Serious graphical glitches
by Jose Antonio on Monday February 12th 2018, 2:32
Thanks. I created the key and now the glitches are gone.
32bit on 64 bit
by Bert on Tuesday June 6th 2017, 3:58
How do you exactly install the 32bit version of Office to a 64bit linux system? Do you have the 64bit wine installed or the 32bit version?

For the winetricks command, I get the following reply, no matter which version of wine I have installed:
You are using a 64-bit WINEPREFIX. If you encounter problems, please retest in a clean 32-bit WINEPREFIX before reporting a bug.
Using winetricks 20170207 - sha1sum: e9fb56411adfee6b85d978502ce7a2625ec05c72 with wine-2.8 (Staging) and WINEARCH=win64
You are running winetricks-20170207, latest upstream is winetricks-20170517!
You should update using your distribution's package manager, --self-update, or manually.
