    Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007


    Hi, just installed wine so I could run Microsoft Office in my Linux OS. I popped in the installation cd and used wine to install the .exe files and everything seemed to install just fine was even able to put in my code to use it, at least it didn't give me any errors. However, when I try running word, power point, or excell It just loads and says opening the program for about 15 seconds then it disappears with nothing opening. I'm using 2.6.27.12-78.2.8.fc9.i686 (Fedora Core 9). Any help would be appreciated.

    You could just use OpenOffice, and save the files as MS Office documents.
