WordPerfect Office X5 on linux


Yes I realize this is OLD software and only a niche few use WordPerfect. My mother is a baby boomer and used to do medical transcription using WP. She swears by it and refuses to try anything else. ( sigh)

So I’m hoping to get this working in Linux Mint 19.1 cinnamon using wine 4.0 and whatever else coherent enough to wine

I get this error crash message when trying to run the installation wizard from the retail cd

Unhandled exception: page fault on read access to 0x000016d4 in 32-bit code (0x6c7f8dbd).

Ideas? Thank you much



Most of the WordPerfect X series installers don’t work at all or at least running from the CD/DVD . this is for X3

It detailed a workaround, might be worth a shot.

Might be pulling teeth, but get her to at least try libre office or something.



Yes…believe me, I’d LOVE it if she would just dump Corel and go with Libre, and she’s retired from doing medical transcription, but refuses to even try anything else. (sigh)

I’ve looked over that x3 workaround, and it’s not an issue of seeing the installation options, it’s at the point of showing all four parts ( word processor, spreadsheet, powerpoint part and whatever the fourth part is) that the wizard locks up on me.

I’ll try some alternate “ruling out” things. Thank you for the link and attempted help though. Cheers.



If all else fails, fire up that debugger :^)



If you can make an iso of the discs I can try to get this running and make a write up for you.



o.0 :slight_smile: (nods humbly)
yes But I’ll have do that tomorrow late afternoon after work please. Lost track of time dealing with guvcview and trying to set up motion detection in linux mint cinnamon 19.1 on a logitech c920

Thank you for the offer, i’ll definitely get that done and see how get it to you.

Just PM me a link to or something. You’ll figure it out.

I’ll PM you back with what data I can gather or if I get a success.
