Playonlinux Installation assistent appears

Go on button pressed

The Assistent shows MS Office 2003

amongs 4 alternatives the correct place "CD called Office 11" is shown. Place the bar

Go on button pressed

Trouble: The CD is not found

The installation process is stoppd at this point. I do not understand this, as I follow the process.

I have installed wine 1:1.6.2-0ubuntu14.2 an wine tricks 0.0+20141009+svn1208-2ubuntu1 from the Ubuntu software Centre.

Hope somebody can give me support

At least I was succesful. I missed creating a virtual drive before installing MS Office from CD.

Now there ist a fault: IOPL not activated, when I start Excell, MSWord or other exe files being part of MSOffice 2003.

Who can give a little support

Yours wthiel
