I had same issue both in Mint Cinnamon and LMDE, as I've used Debian more often than Ubuntu or Mint.
The only distro I had absolutely no trouble installing and running CXOffice is Zorin OS 12. It installed and behaved like putty in my hands.
so - I'm using LM19.x Mate version,
and it seems that I'm able to install New Programs - - only tested, just a few - - they do install A.ok.
but, if I've imported one of my several archives - they don't seem to work, properly,
& I'm not real sure of what is going on, as another Laptop, Cx 17.5 does seem to be working ok.
so - I'll try that version, as well as the later Cx 18 version, again, on this particular desktop. ..
some of these files were created with Cx 14, and Cx 15 or there-about.
& none of them for Cx 17 or Cx 18, when the individual program is run, some of them give the error:
'unexpected handle in net framework' - - not all of them, do though - - some installs didn't need that to run ..
when they were first installed, that is.
these are a bunch of Morse Code programs, in the one bottle.
two other bottles, containing either eSword / theWord seem to be fine.
& another bottle containing the program RapidTyping is also fine.
yet another bottle contains M$ Office 2013, which has issues, as well.
maybe it's that I'm expecting too much, when restoring those older archives, to an later release of Crossover ?.
my idea, back then, was to potentially to avoid any re-install issues, but maybe those bottles are too old ?.
and maybe not as compatible, with the new versions of Crossover, as I'd was thinking ..that they would be.
they were all created on an 32bit LinuxMint machine, and generally with win-xp as the bottle's base.
same hardware, as I've still got, but with some older versions of LinuxMint & Crossover.
the joy of having several PCs is that you can keep on going:
installed Cx 18.1 and import those bottle's yet again. ..
only one of the Morse Code programs failed - the one that needed net-framework, to install, & still gives an Unhandled Exception Error.
and of course, M$ Office 2013 won't run - some parts load / no run,, other parts won't run at all.
seems to be tied in with trying to Activate < again > yet it was activated, when the install was completed.
that may be tied in with that fact that this bottle was created with Cx 15 ?.
any-way this is not any sort of disaster - - these are My Test PCs

Thank you for the details. We do have a bug regarding upgrading old, activated Office bottles, and I think we are close to a solution there. It is good to hear that most of the bottles did survive the upgrade.

CrossOver Forums: the place to discuss running Windows applications on Mac and Linux
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.
