This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

no, its the installer itself. – gabemai Sep 17 '12 at 17:08
The question this is being duped to is indeed related to the installer. – hexafraction Sep 19 '12 at 19:08

I never had a problem installing Microsoft Office because I used PlayOnLinux. It manages Wine versions and has installation scripts similar to wine tricks or Cross Over.

I think for the most part Libre Office does everything MS Office does, but I understand some times you need to install it.

Hope this helps.
