Hi, so i need to install office on fedora 23, the guides that i find on the internet are old or not for fedora, so if you guys could help me installing it with wine, i already installed wine, wine installed a few programs like regedit, notepad and such, i already have office, but when i doucle click the .exe file it just opens archive manager and shows me some files and none of them seem to be an installer.

I don't think many people have tried to install microsoft office via wine. That explains few guides on the web. You may have luck going through wine's website to see the compatibility report and maybe installation guide. On the other hand, you may consider alternatives to microsoft office. Try LibreOffice which comes with Fedora's default installation. Subscribe to web version of microsoft office. Try WPS Office for Linux etc.

I think many people have tried to install MS Office using Wine. Please check their database here(installer), Word here

What version of MS office are you trying to install?

Thank you everyone for answering, i was tring to install Office 2013, i know that the older the version is, the better it will work. I didn't remebered the word online, thanks, i've used powerpoint online previously. I can't really use another option because right now i'm working in something that has a lot of word formatting and i can't mess this up.

So a doubt came out regarding wine, the office that wine has with a decent ranking is 32 bit, will it work correctly?

according to the Wine application database, the only recent version of Microsoft Office which might be compatible with wine is 2013 32Bit. Follow these steps to install.

Anyways, don't expect it to work and prefer LibreOffice over MS Office.

How about MS Office 2010 (32 bit)?
