Type dw20.exe in the box, and click Add. Select dw20.exe from the list, click Edit, select (Disable), click OK, then click Apply.

You said in your initial post you were using 1.2. Which is it? If it's 1.1.42, you need to upgrade.

The only override on that list that is necessary is riched20, and that's not needed for the installer.

Delete ~/.wine and start over with a clean wineprefix, using Wine 1.2 or newer.

How would I know? It's your computer.

You didn't answer my question about which edition of Office you have.
