Hey everyone,

Trying to make the new version 4.09 work with Office 2007. Thought I might reinstall to make the install smaller while upgrading to the latest playonlinux version. Everything was working with 3.8.12 I just put in the command to open Word, Excel, PPT documents and it opened the files no problem from the file manager. /usr/../playonlinux --what it is.

I do the same thing with the new version and I get a message saying cannot open file "my.doc" then another message "document.doc" for each word in the filename I am trying to open.

Is there a different command I have to use for this new version ?

Thanks

Have you tried playonlinux --run "Word 2007" "my document.doc" ?

Thanks, I will try that when I install it again, it's taking forever to install. I have been reinstalling it a few times have I been slowed down or something ?

Took about an hour just to install playonlinux 4.09 from the playonlinux debian repo. Normally takes a few seconds.

What do you think could be the problem then ?

You might have had some background tasks while updating POL ?

What ? Like when I updated from 3.8.12 to 4.09 ? I had some things running I think. Should I reinstall POL ?

I don't know, thought it would be better to start from scratch. It's still really slow can't download wine when installing office, it gets stuck and I just cancel it.

I have exactly the same problem after reinstalling on Office 2007 on Playonlinux 4.0.9.
Everything was working fine with Playonlinux 3.8.

Here is a copy screen of the received message when trying to open a .doc file:
http://i53.tinypic.com/9pyj4y.png

When clicking ok, word opens on an empty file. It seems that the file can't be found.

I also tried to open a .doc with no space in the path, but the problem is the same.

Would be great to have a workaround for this problem...i'm availlable to test any solution or workaround.

Thanks for the help

Try playonlinux --run "$PWD/file.doc" ?

OK, tried both suggestions I got this for the output for the first one:

$ playonlinux --run "Microsoft Word 2007" "My Resume.doc"
[POL_Wine_AutoSetVersionEnv] Message: Reading version : 1.2.3
[POL_Wine_AutoSetVersionEnv] Message: wineprefix : /home/../.PlayOnLinux//wineprefix/Office2007
[POL_Wine_SetVersionEnv] Message: Setting wine version path: 1.2.3, x86
[POL_Wine_SetVersionEnv] Message: "/home/...PlayOnLinux//wine/linux-x86/1.2.3" exists
[POL_Wine] Message: Running wine-1.2.3 WINWORD.EXE
rm: cannot remove `*': No such file or directory

Same problem.

Second one:

$ playonlinux --run "$PWD/My Resume.doc"
bash: /home/../.PlayOnLinux/shortcuts//media/sda7/Documents/My Resume.doc: No such file or directory
rm: cannot remove `*': No such file or directory

This one didn't open Word at all.

Running this:
$ playonlinux --run "Microsoft Word 2007" "$PWD/My Resume.doc"

Opened Word and said could not open "Resume.doc"

And,

playonlinux --run "Microsoft Word 2007" "$(winepath -w $PWD)/My Resume.doc" ?

No good either I'm afraid. What do I put for winepath ? I tried different things for it, like .playonlinux/../wine and /.pol/../winepath and just winepath.

When I put just winepath in I got this.

$ playonlinux --run "Microsoft Word 2007" "$(winepath -w $PWD)/My Resume.doc"
wine: created the configuration directory '/home/../.wine'
fixme:mixer:ALSA_MixerInit No master control found on USB Device 0x46d:0x805, disabling mixer
Could not load Mozilla. HTML rendering will be disabled.
wine: configuration in '/home/../.wine' has been updated.

As well as the usual messages.


Thanks for your help, we'll find out what it is. :laught:

Can you type

/home/../.playonlinux/wine/linux-x86/1.2.3/bin/wine winepath -w $PW

?
