MS Office 2010 on Wine does not open files on doubleclick

Post by TheChefkoch » Tue Apr 06, 2021 5:26 am

See subject, recently MS Office 2010 which ran well on Arch Linux with Wine is not opening Office files on doubleclick anymore. The mouse cursor turns into the spinning ball indicating it is working, then nothing happens.

The office suite is working fine when I navigate to the file within the app.

I downgraded Wine (6.5-2 => 6.4-1) and now it works again. I understand there were some changes to how Wine handles paths in recent updates - any advice on how to resolve this with the latest version of WINE in my current setup (Budgie Desktop on Arch Linux)?

I could resolve it with input from this thread on the Arch Linux forums: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=265206
