What works

Installation of the entire Office suite worked well, although I was not given the opportunity to choose which parts of Office I wanted.  For example, I only wanted to install Word but could only install the whole suite.

What does not

So far, Word itself does not work.  I am asked to register the software with the code key but even after entering it the prog.  just repeats the request again and again then quits out.  I am asked to insert the code key three times and then the program quits out.  The system.reg files seem to be OK but no luck.  I then tried to uninstall and re-install to no avail.  I could not uninstall using WINE.  I had to rip Office out by deleting.  Reinstallation the second time was no better.


What was not tested

I never got to actually test out Word because I could not get past the registration key window, (with the correct key, I might add).
