           Summary: 32 bit Word and Excel 2007 icons on 64 bit give
                    strange 32 bit prefix error message
           Product: Wine
           Version: 1.1.38
          Platform: x86-64
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: -unknown
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: ToddAndMargo at verizon.net

Fedora Core 12 x64
$ rpm -qa wine

The icons that get created after installing Office 2007 give the following
error message when trying to start word 2007 or excel 2007 (the run string is
from the icon):

$ env WINEPREFIX="/home/charlie/.wine" wine "C:\Program Files\Microsoft

wine: '/home/charlie/.wine' is a 32-bit prefix, it cannot be used with 64-bit

Word and Excel will work, if you modify the icon:
Exec=bash -c "cd /home/charlie/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Microsoft\
Office/Office12; wine ./WINWORD.EXE" 

Full (working) icon:

#!/usr/bin/env xdg-open
[Desktop Entry]
Name=Microsoft Office Word 2007
#Exec=env WINEPREFIX="/home/charlie/.wine" wine "C:\\Program Files\\Microsoft
Exec=bash -c "cd /home/charlie/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Microsoft\
Office/Office12; wine ./WINWORD.EXE" 
Comment=Create and edit professional-looking documents such as letters, papers,
reports, and booklets by using Microsoft Office Word.
