Install Microsoft Office 2007
Despite winehq.org's strong recommendations to install Office12 into a separate, dedicated wineprefix (http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.p ... n&iId=4992
), my experience shows that installing into a separate wineprefix results in "IOPL not enabled" error. I've spent 2 days looking for a workaround - there is no workaround. The only feasible way is to install into the main wine folder. To achieve programs separation you may install your other wine programs into separate wine prefixes.
Next insert your Office12 CD, rightclick setup.exe and choose Open with > Wine Windows Program Loader. Proceed as usual.
If you store your CD as .iso file, you can mount it with gCDEmu - analog of Daemontools, which is the only app I know so far that can mount, dismount and make files (mounted to /media) accessible to Terminal calls. (http://cdemu.net/
). See my post on How to install GCDEmu: http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=42&t=79916
