My system is running on Ubuntu 14.04 (64 bit) and I have already installed wine-1.6.2, and when I go and double click on setup.exe icon, I get the following Setup Error dialog:

Setup can't find or validate an installation file. Please try reinstall Office from your installation source, or if you install from a downloaded package,please re-install. if you continue to have problems,please contact Microsoft or your system adminstrator.

Is there any way to install Office 2013 ?

Thanks in advance.


I think you can not install MS Office on wine.

Ubuntu has LibreOffice, it's almost the same, and it supports MS Office document formats.
