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.

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.
Executing w_do_call dotnet20

This package does not work on a 64-bit installation
