About Bordeaux:

The Bordeaux Technology Group is a software services and development company specializing in Windows compatibility software. Users of Linux, BSD, OpenSolaris and Mac systems from time to time find themselves in the need to run specialized Windows software. The Bordeaux suite enables access to these programs and data in a seamless and low cost manner without requiring licensing of Microsoft Technology. The Bordeaux Group also provides migration services and support for alternative operating systems specializing in Windows compatibility.

There is a multitude of software developed only for the Windows operating system and even when software vendors port their applications to another platform, generally it lacks features that the Windows version contains. The only solution these developers face is to have access to both systems for testing which leads to increased infrastructure demands, and wasted project resources. If you are vendor interested in supporting your application on Linux, BSD, Solaris or Mac OS X or a software user that needs to run a Windows application on Linux, BSD, OpenSolaris or Mac OS X we can help.

Version 2.0.10 New Features:

  • Fixes to the Cellar manager
  • Fixed a bug in the GUI
  • Updated winetricks
  • Minor bug fixes

We use PayPal as our preferred payment provider, with PayPal you do not need an account to make a transaction simply select to pay via credit card, its very simple and fast.

Bordeaux 2.0.10 press release

How to install Microsoft Office 2010 on Linux with Wine

I installed MS Office Professional 2010 on my Ubuntu computers and it's working fluently.
It is a nerve breaking experience for a Linux new bee to work with open-office for documentation works than their favourite MS Office. New interface and new formats of open office makes them reluctant to take it as a first choice. So this post is for those who are tired of rebooting your system to make small changes in the documentations.
Now you don’t want to reboot your system to get windows™ and MS Office™ to work on your documents. You can do it from any linux distribution with wine.

To help further Wine development please consider purchasing a copy of CrossOver from CodeWeavers.

You can use ( Tribeca ) as your Promo Code in CodeWeavers store you will save 25% off CrossOver for Mac or Linux!



1. Install Wine 1.3.35 beta through PPA.

Code:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa
Code:
sudo apt-get update
Code:
sudo apt-get install wine1.3
2. Now start a new wine prefix or rename the hidden folder .wine in your Home directory (if you had Wine installed before).

From winetricks,

Choose "Select the default wineprefix" then "Install a windows DLL or component" and from there install the dotnet20 and msxml6, following the instructions.
Again from "Select the default wineprefix" choose "install a font" and select the corefonts.

From winetricks and "Select the default wineprefix" choose run "winecfg". From there go to tab "Libraries" and click on *msxml6 then "Edit" and choose "Native (windows)".

3. Run the MS Office 2010 Professional x86 installer you have.
I used an .exe file. On Wine website they used an .iso mounted (MS Office Pro Plus x86 2010). Choose to install only Word, Excell and Powerpoint.
I used a valid key and the online activation worked perfectly.

During the installation the installer was hang for a while but finally it completed the installation.



4. On winecfg as instructed above to the tab "Libraries" and from "new override for library" click the small arrow and choose to "Add" riched20 and gdiplus. Then click on both, "Edit" and as above change their override to "Native (windows)".

5. Final steps.
Open Word, Excell and Powerpoint to see if they work. Then go to each one to File-options-Trust Center->Trust Center Settings, lower the security to none in every option and uncheck the Enable Protected View options. Word and Excell are working perfectly, the only problem is with Powerpoint which is not very dependable.

Wineskin 2.5.4 Released

Wineskin 2.5.4 update is out! You can get it in Wineskin Winery or use the normal Manual download option on the Downloads Page.

I'll work on getting the Manual and FAQ updated.

The list of stuff!

  • new Icon and logo
  • updated WineskinX11 to xorg-server 1.11.99.902+patches
  • updated almost all supporting libraries to most current
  • CMD+H or Cmd+Opt+A will knock you out of fullscreen mode now. Cmd+Opt+A will still toggle it back on.
  • File Associations should work correctly
  • Various error detection and handling improvements
  • Fixes to detecting where fonts are on system X11
  • Uses newest version quartz-wm on your system, unless its not found, then uses wrapper version. This fixes many problems with decorated windows. (optional-default)
  • WineskinQuitScript script added in Menu Script folder to do a CMD+Q shutdown. Lets software makers have a chance to put in commands and such to do before someone can just kill it with CMD+Q.
  • Wineskin.app Prompt on Quit option updated to tell Windows apps to shut down, so that the Windows app has a chance to prompt to save, etc... may not always work
  • CD Eject command added to top menubar by default. Can help getting discs switched right for multi-disc game installs.
  • If you launch a wrapper that a different user is already using, it no longer causes problems, it just gives an error that it cannot be used by multiple users at the same time.
  • Default settings changed for copy/paste so it should work more reliably
  • Default Menu scripts have info on them on how to access and use Wine correctly, so you can launch other programs in Wine or whatever is needed.
  • Installer will only prompt to set an EXE if the currently set EXE is not found after installation
  • Engine base for Custom Engine builds updated to W2.5.4EngineBase and should work better now on all OSes and Xcode 3 or 4 (Xcode 4 is still limited to building 10.6+ compatible engines). libxml and freetype problems should be fixed, so no more XQuartz install required for building.

Bordeaux 75% off sale

The Bordeaux Technology Group is proud to announce a 75% off sale on Bordeaux for Linux, Mac, FreeBSD, PCBSD and OpenIndiana. With the new reduced price we hope more people will have the opportunity to use Bordeaux and Wineskin Pro to run their favorite Windows applications and Games.

Bordeaux for Linux , BSD , Mac and OpenIndiana will cost only $4.99 during this sale.The price of Wineskin Pro has also been reduced from the normal selling price of $29.95 to only $4.99!


About Wineskin Pro:
Wineskin is a tool used to make wrappers to run Windows software on Mac OS X. The wrappers are in the form of a normal Mac Application, which can be double clicked and ran just like its native. They can also be used to make a distributable port of software. You do not need the Windows program's source code, you can attempt to port any program you want.

With Wineskin Pro you will receive basic support for installing and configuring the Wineskin Application. We will also answer questions about installing engines and configuring wrappers, and in the near future provide custom engines that have been tested to work with today's most popular Games.

Unlike other solutions you can have multiple engines (Wine versions) installed at one time, so if your favorite game runs in that engine you don't have to worry about it breaking in a future Wine release.

About Bordeaux:
The Bordeaux Technology Group is a software services and development company specializing in Windows compatibility software. Users of Linux, BSD, OpenSolaris and Mac systems from time to time find themselves in the need to run specialized Windows software. The Bordeaux suite enables access to these programs and data in a seamless and low cost manner without requiring licensing of Microsoft Technology. The Bordeaux Group also provides migration services and support for alternative operating systems specializing in Windows compatibility.

There is a multitude of software developed only for the Windows operating system and even when software vendors port their applications to another platform, generally it lacks features that the Windows version contains. The only solution these developers face is to have access to both systems for testing which leads to increased infrastructure demands, and wasted project resources. If you are vendor interested in supporting your application on Linux, BSD, OpenSolaris or Mac OS X or a software user that needs to run a Windows application on Linux, BSD, OpenSolaris or Mac OS X we can help.
