Microsoft OneNote 2013 cannot start : "Need to install Desktop Experience"

I've installed the Microsoft Office 2013 Professional suite but cannot get OneNote to start.  An error message appears requesting that the Windows 7 Desktop Experience Feature be installed, but there's no option to add this feature in the CrossOver 16.0 Control Panel.  I cannot add this feature separately via a CrossOver Tie either since it's not available.

Has anyone found a solution here?

Still noting the same issue with the latest version of CrossOver released yesterday (16.1.0).  The Wine Version appears to be identical to that of the previous release (1.9.21).

I just did a fresh install with Office 2013. I get the same error you get. I will have to think for a while how to get the desktop experience to work.

Unfortunately, just chiming in to say that I have the same problem on cub Linux. Since I am a raw beginner, I'm curious for any help that might be provided.
