Neither with the double quotes nor with the backslash
winword.exe doesn't manage to start. So I turned back to Winetools.
That's what I did:
I connected to internet; then, from another console, I did
, and chose 'Base setup', then "TrueType Arial": I got the message:
'The config file says the software you want to install is already installed. Continue?'.
I chose 'yes', there was a downloading, after which I accepted the license, and the installation went up to the end;
I found myself in the 'Base setup' menu again, and selected DCOM98; there was a downloading as well, after
I accepted the license, and the installation went up to the end;
then I found myself in the 'Base setup' menu again, and selected the
'Internet Explorer 6.0 SP1 (plain method)', and got the message:
After the installation your system.reg will be replaced!
You will loose all registry keys of installed programs (except for DCOM98)!
This is a full automatic installation of almost all components.
You can add additional components later by using the uninstaller.
I chose 'no'. Then I exited the 'Base setup' menu, went into the Main Menu and continue with
"Install additional software" and choose "Microsoft Office 2000". I got the message:
If you are asked for, select drive D: for installation.
Never install Office-Tools/Office-Assistents.
They might shredder your setup.
I pressed 'o.k.' and got the message:
If you downloaded the file by yourself (e.g. in a different language)
you can use this one instead of the default.
Do you want to use the default?
I chose 'yes' and got the message:
For this software you need a mounted CD. Shall I mount it for you?
I chose 'yes', and got the error message:
Mounting of the CD failed. You should do it manually.
I pressed 'o.k', and after a few seconds got the message:
It seems that the installation has failed.
I pressed 'o.k.', and found myself in the Additional Software menu again.
I exit WineTools.
What now? Maybe it doesn't work with Wine 20041201?
Or what wrong did I do?
