What works

Nothing, crashes on splash screen

What does not

Crashes on splash screen


Tried 32 bit prefix, and Windows XP, 7, and 10. Powerpoint still does not start. Word and Excel do start, however, after doing the following:


"Need to manually create "Direct3D" section in "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine" thread and in this section create an DWORD parameter called "MaxVersionGL". Edit this parameter by entering value "30002". It need to get rid of blank screen.
Open Wine configuration, go to "Libraries" tab, add a new override for "riched20" and set it for "Native (Windows)". It need to avoid incorrect font rendering."

I also created HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\Direct2D with DWORD max_version_factory set to 0 (per appdb's instructions for Word)

What was not tested

everything beyond the splash screen

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Intel
  • Driver: open source
