PlayOnLinux fails to install MS Office 2010

Maybe something's wrong with wine?

Hi all -

I'm new to mint and am trying to install MS Office through PlayOnLinux. I'm using the steps laid out here:

But am getting a lot of errors. The first one says: "Error in POL_Wine. Wine seems to have crashed. If your program is running, just ignore this message."

If I hit next I get another error that says: "Error in POL_Shortcut Binary not found: WINWORD.EXE Have you installed the program to the default location?"

Then this error gets replicated for excel, powerpt, etc.

I'm using a licensed 2010 Office professional cd. Am new to mint - not sure what's going on.
