Open MS Word 2003 when .doc

Post by davix » Sun Jan 20, 2013 10:43 am

Hi Folks,
Iam using MS Word 2003 with Wine 1.5.22 on my Ubuntu 12.04. Word is working well.

The problem is:
When Iam trying to open a .doc File, Word opens up, but the File isnt't load into, so I have to open it manually over Word.

What can the problem be?

Thats are my parameters:
env WINEPREFIX="/home/user/.wine" wine C:\\windows\\command\\start.exe /Unix /home/user/.wine/dosdevices/c:/users/user/Start\ Menu/Programs/Microsoft\ Office/Microsoft\ Office\ Word\ 2003.lnk

Already tried:
env WINEPREFIX="/home/user/.wine" wine C:\\windows\\command\\start.exe /Unix /home/user/.wine/dosdevices/c:/users/user/Start\ Menu/Programs/Microsoft\ Office/Microsoft\ Office\ Word\ 2003.lnk %f

Much thanks in advance!

best regards

It's a known bug: http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=22935.

The bug hasn't been updated in awhile. You might want to add a comment that this is still an issue in 1.5.22 and also affects Word 2003.
