I am new to Wine and I have this error while opening POWERPNT.EXE:

0009:err:eventlog:ReportEventW L"Microsoft Office PowerPoint"
0009:err:eventlog:ReportEventW L"PowerPoint failed to start correctly last time.  Starting PowerPoint in safe mode will help you correct or isolate a startup problem in order to successfully start the program.  Some functionality may be disabled in this mode.\n\nDo you want to start PowerPoint in safe mode?"
0009:err:mscoree:CLRRuntimeInfo_GetRuntimeDirectory error reading registry key for installroot

Is there any way to fix this?

Instead of using PowerPoint,I recommend you to use Apache OpenOffice as it is available for Ubuntu and provides same features.

  • i don't know how to use it tho

  • Installing OpenOffice is a struggle - why not just use LibreOffice?
