I cannot get MS Office to install & work for me in Wine.
I use Ubuntu10.04 & latest Wine 1.3.8
I put my Office2003 disc in drive & run wine setup.exe from terminal 
& it goes through install stages but gives an error message setup cannot complete> rerun setup.
There is a link from Applications>Wine>Programs>MSOffice>Word
& when I click this Word opens but says not setup for this user please run setup.

I have also tried to install MSOffice2003 in PlayonLinux but this gives an error message on setup too!
I have been trying to install this now over the last 2 days & do not know what else I can do.
I look forward to helpful replies,many thanks
