I installed the latest version of PlayonLinux using the instructions given on their download page (http://www.playonlinux.com/en/download.html) for Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise Pangolin). I followed the instructions to install PlayonLinux, but it seems it installed Wine 1.2.3 (x86). According to WineHQ, versions after 1.3.21 should be able to install the Service Packs perfectly. (http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=4992)

To get the updates installed, I added Wine 1.5.14 (x86) through PlayonLinux but when I opened Word 2007 under that version of Wine both Wine and Word 2007 crashed. Now I'm not sure where to start or what to do. I'm a novice to Wine in general so any detailed help would be much appreciated.
