First time I am using PlayOnLinux (POL).

I have CentOS 6.5 (i386) OS and Playonlinux 4.1 is installed on a trial setup.

I have to install MS Office 2007 on more than 20 Linux (i.e. CentOS 6.5 - i386) but they are not having internet access, so how to make everything available to USB pendrive, so offline installation can also be possible.

- How to find which script is executed to install Office 2007?

- During execution of that script, is it also stored on local drive, if yes whats location of script and other dependecies downloaded too?

- Is log file generated for executed script to install Office 2007?

Many thanks!

There is another problem as well, In Excel 2007, when I open two excel spreadsheets I can access only one. Even if I clicks on another spreadsheet it doesn't allow me to change active spreadsheet. I am not able to perform Cut, Copy and Paste bewteen multiple excel workbooks.

Please guide me what to do?

 Offline installation is not supported, as there's no mechanism to compute all transitive dependencies.

 You can check it out online:

- During execution of that script, is it also stored on local drive, if yes whats location of script and other dependecies downloaded too?

I think it's temporarily available as ~/.PlayOnLinux/tmp/install. Other scripts it calls are also temporarily available from this directory I think, called after their original script name in the repostory. One problem for you is that they're always (re)downloaded from the server.

Files downloaded should land in ~/.PlayOnLinux/ressources/ if reusable, or also in ~/.PlayOnLinux/tmp/ if they're not.

- Is log file generated for executed script to install Office 2007?

Try Tools > PlayOnLinux debugger > Install scripts > Microsoft Office 2007. If you can't find that in the menus, your version of PlayOnLinux is too old (more than 2 years old actually).
