I re installed Ubuntu many times and I still can't get it working.

I get this:

Error in POL_Wine
Wine seems to have crashed

If your program is running, just ignore this message

And then I press Next I get this:

Error in POL_Shortcut
Binary not found: WINWORD.EXE
Have you installed the program to the default location?

And then this:

Error in POL_Shortcut
Binary not found: EXCEL.EXE
Have you installed the program to the default location?

then this:

Error in POL_Shortcut
Binary not found: POWERPNT.EXE
Have you installed the program to the default location?

then this:

Error in POL_Shortcut
Binary not found: ONENOTE.EXE
Have you installed the program to the default location?

etc.

I have BumbleBee installed using a gt555M. And the MS Word is a 32 bit version and I already tried other MS Word installations. I installed a game called SuperMeatBoy using PlayOnLinux and that works fine.

The best option I have found is to install PlayOnLinux.

PlayOnLinux uses the wine technology but will also install extra libraries specific to certain programs. The last I checked, it supported Office 2010. I have it running with Excel, Word, OneNote, Sharepoint and Powerpoint.

I had a problem too with it while using PlayOnLinux. And I was doing seriously stupid mistake. Be sure you don't do it. First of all get a x86 copy, secondly you have to mount and iso using mount command or program like Furius ISO Mount and then in PlayOnLinux choose the setup.exe. I thought that POL will automatically mount image for me but it doesn't. So choose the setup.exe in POL not an iso file.
