I am trying to run windows office 2007 enterprise on Ubuntu 12.04. I have been able to launch and write something on it. But it crashes when I try to save anything. Since Office 2007 has got a good score, I think the problem is in my current version of Wine (1.4). Maybe I shall upgrade it to Wine 1.6, but I don't know how. I have made some research and I didn't find anything helpful. Could you please help me?! Thank you

Then install wine1.6

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install wine1.6

ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa has wine1.6
