Many times have I done this, but never quickly. The reason – never wrote it down, thus forcing myself to have to search through loads of pages again and again… The secret is knowing which Windows libraries to install using winetricks, after that, it’s a simple process:

  •   Install latest Wine and cabextract
    sudo apt-get install wine
    sudo apt-get install cabextract
  • Get winetricks:
    wget http://www.kegel.com/wine/winetricks
  • Install Windows libraries usin Winetricks:
    sh winetricks dotnet11
    sh winetricks gdiplus
    sh winetricks vb3run
    sh winetricks vb4run
    sh winetricks vb5run
    sh winetricks vb6run
    sh winetricks msxml3
    sh winetricks msxml4
    sh winetricks msxml6
    sh winetricks riched20
    sh winetricks riched30
    sh winetricks vcrun6
    sh winetricks vcrun2005sp1
    sh winetricks vcrun2008
    sh winetricks dotnet20

That’s it! Microsoft Office can now be installed by running the setup.exe from the installation CD… (wine setup.exe from console, or right click from file manager -> open with wine).
