Office 2016 not installing on crossover 18

  On Ubuntu 18.10, using 4.18.8 kernel, crossover 18 installation is failing.   I would try the offline installer, but I'm not sure where to get it (the MS instructions don't seem to work, pretty sure they rearrange their site and don't check their old docs work).

Office 2016 Home/Student was definitely working before I upgraded Ubuntu, but I've tried a reinstall since it wouldn't start after the upgrade, also had to re-download, so not sure if something has changed.


Update - I found the offline installer HomeStudentRetailImage.img and mounted it with the volume mounter, ran the installation and got the same error.

This issue has been forwarded to the Official CodeWeavers Ticket System.  If you have observed this issue and would like to report it as well, please open a support ticket or send an email to with a description of what you are seeing and a link to this post.

Thank you!

I'm having similar issues, the 32-bit installer opens and gets as far as 31-41% before freezing and does not resume. I'm using Ubuntu Budgie 18.04 with kernel 4.19.13 and crossover 18.1. Is there any fix for this?
