What works

Selecting from the start screen, creating blank presentations, signing in MS account, switching tabs in main screen, slides design preview, etc. No crashes during using, good.

What does not

Animations (when selecting template from start screen, pressing "File" button, switching tabs in "File" menu), activation. In created slides selected design appeared only in preview and title page, but if switch Layout on Blank slide from right mouse button menu, design appeared also in slide editor. Restoring window after minimizing.


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.

What was not tested

Saving presentation, adjusting settings.

Additional Comments

Tested in Windows 7 simulation. In Windows 10 simulation app crashes during start. PowerPoint sometimes crashed on start, but you can start and work in it on the second or third attempt to start, denying start in safe mode request. In Wine 2.0.2 program crashed when trying to switch tabs in main window, but using development build doesn't cause that (and maybe many more) problem. Slideshow is working, but before showing slide appeared a window where saying about probably incompatible videoadapter. Slides are showing correctly although. Sometimes window "Setting up Microsoft Office 2016" appearing, it's normal.
