I am using CrossOver Office 7.1 to run Microsoft Office 2007 including PowerPoint 2007 on Ubuntu Linux 8.04 ("Hardy"). However, so far I was unable to use the Package on CD feature of PowerPoint 2007, which is very handy when it comes to prepare a presentation for e.g. a meeting. When I click on "Copy to folder", I get an error message stating that PowerPoint Viewer and the Package for CD feature are corrupted, I should install them anew. If I install MS Office 2007 again, the same error message comes up, and if I try the PowerPoint Viewer included in MS Office 2007 on the command line with CrossOver Office, it works, indicating that there is something wrong with Package for CD.
Therefore my question: does the Package for CD feature of PowerPoint 2007 work for somebody? If not, then it is a bug of PowerPoint 2007 in conjunction with CrossOver Linux 7.1, perhaps.
This is the first that I've heard of this issue, but it does not mean it works or doesn't work. I would suggest filing a support ticket detailing what you are seeing.
Then, we can take a look in-house to see if it's something we can fix easily or with some work. OR, if there is something we know to do to get it working properly. Further, it will allow us to keep good track of the actual issue.

We're rebels. We're misfits. But mostly, we're software liberators. And we're very, very good at what we do. We have to be. Lots of developers work with open source, but only a tiny fraction of those are good enough to get software that was designed for one platform to work on another one. We invented CrossOver software - a unique approach to cross-platform compatibility that does not require dual-boot or another OS license. We launched PortJump to help app and game developers broaden their market beyond Windows® users. And we launched ExecMode to help organizations solve really ugly technical challenges.
