ÂThis entry is just for testing the installer of Microsoft Office 2000 office suite.
When reporting test results, please follow the Guidelines for Submitting Test Reports below (scroll down to notes section).
|Excel||Number crunching for the masses...|
|Access||Design your own relational database.|
|Word||The largest and most well-known word processing software currently available.|
|Microsoft Powerpoint||Create slideshows with animation and sound.|
|FrontPage||WYSIWYG HTML Editor from Microsoft.|
|Microsoft Outlook||Email, Calendar, Contact Manager, and more.|
Dutch version tested.
Starting the setup. Enter username, initials, left company name empty. Accepting the EULA. Clicking "Install now" to install everything with default options. The installation completes and Access, Excel, Powerpoint and Word can now be started. So the installer appears to have installed all the applications without problems.
.doc and .xls files can now be opened directly from nautilus with Word/Excel as well. Perhaps you need to run Word/Excel first for it to pick up the new app.
All screens appear to be rendered correctly.
What does not
What was not tested
Custom install, anything else not mentioned.
Outlook cannot be started right after the installation because Outlook Express 4.1 or higher (note: Outlook is not the same as Outlook Express) is nowhere to be found, that's not wine's fault. I just didn't install Outlook Express 4.1 or higher prior to the installation because I couldn't be bothered. Call it human error.
