Selected Test Results

What works

* Installation (well there is different AppDB for Office installer)

* starting the Word2000 Professional (Czech Editon v9.0.3821 SR-1)

* creating a new file, opening and editing files, pasting of texts

What does not

You can not save your work in wine 1.1.35 (regression; bug 21071). When you try to save your work, wine crashes. So warning for all those of you, who have autosave 1hour.


What was not tested

Everything other than basic functions.

Hardware tested


  • GPU:
  • Driver:

Additional Comments

Saving and autosaving is important as writing text itself, thus i rate this as garbage. There is already a patch for bug 21071, but it requires some skills and tools. So stay at wine-1.1.34 or wait for wine-1.1.36. One more thing to installation - after displaying "Installation completed sucessfully" wine crashes, but that is benign (post install procees "CFGWIZ.EXE" is executed and crashes --might look like installation failure to someone, but that is not true).
