Hi, PlayOnLinux added an option in the right click menu for opening my Office 2007 extensions. When I select the option, for example "Open with Microsoft Powerpoint", i get an error saying "File not found"

If i Right Click the .ppt file for instance and select "Properties" and hit the "Open With" tab, i can add another application with the following command:

env WINEPREFIX="/home/mark/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/Office2007" wine "C:\\Program Files\\Microsoft Office\\Office12\\WINWORD.EXE"

but this option is then named "env" and is placed in the "Open with" menu. So what i would like to do is set it for the "Open with Microsoft Powerpoint" right click option.

So in short, my question is where can I correct this command so that the "Open with Microsoft Powerpoint/Word/Excel" actually work from the right click menu?

I've only been on Linux for two weeks. Much too learn. I'd appreciate your help. Thanks.

Hi deutschmarx,
you can point Microsoft Office Word 2007, which is in ~/.PlayOnLinux/configurations/installed directory, in Open With tab and then you'll have got Open With Microsoft Office Word 2007 or whatever you name the script. This script already contains

env WINEPREFIX="/home/mark/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/Office2007" wine "C:\\Program Files\\Microsoft Office\\Office12\\WINWORD.EXE"

Hi,
You can also also use this line :
playonlinux --run "MSWord 2007"

right click -> open with -> playonlinux --run "MSWord 2007"

With "MSWord 2007" the name of the shortcut in PlayOnLinux.

NSLW, I asked that before in another thread, but don't know it was the right place.

Why are not the "open with" configurations based on ' ~/.PlayOnLinux/configurations/installed' script created by default instead of a lot of wrong lauchers? Is there any problem with it?
