I need to use Microsoft Office for a class I'm taking, and I can't use an alternative. I'm running WINE 4.5, Ubuntu 19.10, and PlayOnLinux 4.3.4, and I have access to the installer executable and installer disc image.

Each time I double-click the executable in either the image or the installer, it starts up and gets stuck on this screen for about a minute, and it crashes.O365 Installer Loading Screen I try to set this up in PlayOnLinux, and the same happens.

  • You wont get an answer here as this will require thorough knowledge of wine and office 365. WineHQ is a better place to ask about this. As a reference see for instance forum.winehq.org/viewtopic.php?t=29676 and appdb.winehq.org/… "I need to use Microsoft Office for a class I'm taking, and I can't use an alternative" still no reason to use WINE. If you want a working office 365 use Windows. Virtualbox if you want to run it inside Linux. Less hassle and a far more superior experience. – Rinzwind Jan 7 at 14:25

You can use KVM instead of WINE to run windows on you linux machine. I find it better than Virtualbox
