winecfg: Can not find all overwritten dlls in a native windows 7 installation


  1. I have installed Office 2010 in Crossover.
  2. I have installed Office 2010 in a native windows 7.
  3. I had a look at winecfg librarian tab of the Crossover installation.
  4. My expectation was, that I would find all files from the list in the winecfg tab "overwritten files" also in windows 7. I have found all files, that are not crossed out in the picture (see below), but I did not find the files, I have crossed out in the following picture.


How can it be, that (compared with the crossover installation) several dll's are missing in my windows 7 installation, although my native windows 7 installation works also great? (and all updates are installed).

What does this mean?
-Are this dlls missing in my native windows 7 installation? If yes: But why does Office 2010 work in my windows 7 installation?
-Does winecfg in crossover overwrite useless, non-existent dlls? So is this a crossover "error"?

Thank you. Would be very interested.
