After I successfully installed Ms.Office 2007 on Wine with the help of PlayOnLinux (how? do read here), I started to run Ms.Excel first.
But what happened? Ms.Excel stopped working (freezing) with the splash screen stay appeared, with the anomaly that the Office at the top left keep flashing and blinking on.
From my observation, Ms.Excel in fact do a request for a user's Full Name and Initial information because this is a fresh install. And on unknown cause, the dialog box is closed by the modal windows of the splash screen :-(
Well the solution is easy, press the key combination Alt + Space on the keyboard. A dropdown menu will appears, select Move, then press the arrow keys until the dialog box appear. Enter the requested informations, then press OK. Done!
|Press Alt + Space to show up the menu, then choose Move|
|Move down the box with keyboard, fill the informations|
Hope you are helped by these tips.
