    MS Office under Wine is probably never going to work. You'd need CrossOver from CodeWeavers or some similar non-free product to do that.

    As an alternative, you could run a Windows VM in your Linux machine and run MS Office in that.

    Or you could use LibreOffice/OpenOffice, which is an open source Linux alternative to MS Office which is able to handle most of the file formats and is regularly maintained and updated.

    Hello and Welcome!

    According to the Wine database, atreyu is pretty much dead-on.

    You're not going to have much luck with it at all.
    Probably better for you to just search for an equivalent app. You could check here or here.

    Have you used Synaptic to install packages in PCLinuxOS before? You need to familiarize yourself with how to install packages to get the most out of your Linux distro. Try the steps listed here.
