i am trying to run office 2007 using wine , everything installed fine but when i try to open any file using word,excel i get DDE failure , or an exception please refer to attached screen shot
I have seen alot of assertion failed errors over the years (mainly in native Windows) and they are quite hard to pin point. I recommend that you uninstall Office then upgrade your Wine version as per the instruction below and lastly try installing Office again.
First add the add the PPA.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa
Then update your system.
sudo apt-get update
Then try installing Wine 1.5
sudo apt-get install wine1.5
That should get you up and running.
