Version : Professional
Type of install : custom (doesn't install clip-arts, help, document examples, etc).
Wine version : 5.0 (Xubuntu 20.04)
I tested only the install of Word and Excel.

What was not tested
All other tools were not tested for installation (Powerpoint, Access, etc).
The install problem seems related to the x86_64 support (~ Windows 64bits running 32 bits application). You better have to indicate ~ Windows 32 bits.
