The installation process was successful but I get error messages when opening any application. The instructions I followed were from here. How do I go about it? I am using Ubuntu 10.04. The error message I get is

Unhandled exception: assertion failed in 32-bit code (0x6b02b832).

I hate saying this, but did you search Google for this? Here is the first result, which should get you on your way to using Office 2007 on Ubuntu 10.04. :) – SirCharlo Sep 4 '12 at 14:14
That said, I had best experience with running MS Office inside a Windows 7 copy on a virtual box machine. Nice integration with the Linux desktop, no compatibility problems. – January Sep 4 '12 at 14:18
Here's an additional link that may help you, should difficulties arise with Wine. – SirCharlo Sep 4 '12 at 14:20
@Sircharlo, i tried using the first link you sent to. the installation was successful but none of the application is opening. – Edwin Otwori Sep 4 '12 at 14:26
Try upgrading your Wine using the Ubuntu Wine PPA. – Cumulus007 Sep 4 '12 at 15:40

I don't know if this will help you with your problem, but I had a similar problem with installing games on Ubuntu and got a similar error. My suggestion to you, and thing that worked fo me is, try updating your graphics driver.

Hope this helps!
