Hello. I installed MS office 2010 using playonlinux previously and all worked fine on my manajaro distribution. I then reinstalled manjaro a couple of weeks ago because of system break that I could not recover. During that reinstall I formatted and rewrote the boot and root partitions but kept my old home partition. I reinstalled playonlinux to reinstall MS office but playonlinux has found my evidence of the old install on home. I am now trying to get it to recognize it to the point that I could use it.

I get into the shortcut to a virtual drive part as well as repair a virtual drive but this does not seem to make a difference.

Do I have to re-install MSoffice with installer or can I just recover what is there already on home?
