MS-Office 2007 doesn't run after parallel Wine install

This is on Ubuntu Mate 18.04.

I installed crossover and it ran flawlessly with Office 2007. Until yesterday, when I installed Wine (from the repos) and an old Word 2000 in it.

On my account (with .wine and Word 2000) everything still runs well, but on other accounts (with Office 2007 and Crossover only), making a new bottle lasts for 5 minutes and then fails without error, or Word & Co. don't start at all.

Any idea if there is a library conflict somewhere? Would it help to re-install a current Crossover? Or could I only mess up everything even more?

I chose Wine for Word 2000 because there is no "recipe" for that version in Crossover, and the two used to run well side-by-side on my old system.
