Ubuntu – Howto fix “Please insert volume ‘OFFICE12’ (needed for package ‘office2007pro’)” on winetricks office2007pro

microsoft-officewine

I'm trying to install MSO 2007 with winetricks with the following commands:

WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/.local/share/wineprefixes/office2007pro winecfg
WINEPREFIX=~/.local/share/wineprefixes/office2007pro winetricks office2007pro

I get this error message:

Please insert volume 'OFFICE12' (needed for package 'office2007pro').

Problem solved using the following steps:

  1. Create iso-file named OFFICE12.iso with label OFFICE12 with your MSO 2007 setup files (folder with setup.exe and autorun.inf). And then mount it with Disk Image Mounter or from terminal. It should mount to /media/$USER/OFFICE12.

  2. Run winetricks again with

    WINEPREFIX=~/.local/share/wineprefixes/office2007pro winetricks office2007pro
    
  3. The setup.exe will launch. Wait it to finish.

Installation SP3 (office2007sp3-kb2526086-fullfile-XX-XX.exe) is recommended too.
