office 2010 and .lnk files

Office 2010 seems to be working great with crossover 11.2
my only problem is whenever I save a .docx file another two files with same name and added .lnk are created; if I am working on a document, and save it 3 times then I will end up with 6 .lnk files -
any idea how to fix that?

Had the same annoying problem and fixed it by making a "Recent" folder for the crossover user inside the bottle.
Have a look over here for some more info: http://www.codeweavers.fr/support/tickets/browse/?ticket_id=904741

And after, you need to set up an cron job to remove each day the thousands *.lnk files created in you Recent directory !!!

In order to solve the problem you have to create the following two folder in the office 2010 bottle:

./home/xxx/.cxoffice/Microsoft_Office_2010/drive_c/users/crossover/Recent
./home/xxx/.cxoffice/Microsoft_Office_2010/drive_c/users/Public/Recent

That's it!
