Re: Office2003 in wine with F10?

Previously I was able to get MS Office 2003 installed and working for Excel

Although I have an operational Office XP setup in F10 using Crossover, I
used to like having both Office XP and Office 2003 apps available for
different purposes for the two sets of apps. The Crossover and wine installs
are totally independent so each set does not affect the other.

However in F10 I have not been able to get Office 2003 working in wine. I
appear to get the install working but if I try to run Excel it hangs and I
have to kill the relevant processes otherwise I have bit of the Excel gui
hogging my screen! I guess I should pay attention to the stream of messages
that appears in the terminal during the execution of the setup file when
doing "wine setup"!

Does anyone have Office2003 working in F10, and if so is there is step by
step guide to getting it going.  I expect that I need some dll files putting
into the .wine area, possibly using winetricks, or perhaps there is some
trick with winecfg that needs to be done - but so far I am stuck!

There were wine updates recently (mine were installed on 12/3 according to yum.log). I had a working application on F9 that all of a sudden failed to run properly for me yesterday (I can't remember the last time I used it, it was obviously well over a week ago). I fixed it by updating to the version of wine in updates-testing: wine-1.1.9-2 was updated to wine-1.1.10-1 from updates-testing and that application now starts for me again. If I remember correctly, my error was that wine couldn't find winedos.dll.so. Well, it can now after the update.
