Office 2007 on Mac w/ Crossover: Findings

I copied the native GDI32.dll from a Windows machine to CrossOver Office and did the "ln -s" to link gdiplus.dll to gdi32.dll and marked the gdi libs as native in the winecfg. Now Office 2007's installer crashes with an error with an HResult on the GetNativeSystemInfo function. It looks like the GetNativeSystemInfo function does not return the right information for Office's installer in Wine/CXOffice's kernel32.dll

Does anybody have any input on how I can try to modifiy this and copy it into the CXOffice install or any resources about this? I know about the MSDN resource that explains the function but I was wondering if there is any patches for GetNativeSystemInfo to try?

Have you tried looking at this?

Seems that someone got it working by installing on Windows and copying over to linux.  Maybe that might shed some light on the issue?

Actually, we've got Office 2007 starting to install + run in our development tree; that will
be part of the upcoming 7.0 release coming fairly soon now.

It's got some fairly serious warts yet, so it's not quite ready for testing, but we're getting there.

Cheers,

Jeremy
