Yes. Use the Add Application button and then navigate to where you
installed PowerPoint. Click on the powerpoint executable and then go
back and click on the application and then the Libraries tab. Select
riched20 and that should set it to "Native, builtin". Click on the
Apply button to save this change. Do not click on the OK button as this
will close winecfg. Click to the Applications tab and click on the
Default Settings item. Then click on libraries and remove the riched20
AND riched32 entries.

It is BEST to use different wine prefixes for different programs, but
not totally necessary.
