  programs in "Microsoft Office 2007" don't start

Status in PlayOnLinux:
  Fix Released
Status in “playonlinux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: playonlinux

  lsb_release -rd
  Description:	Ubuntu 9.10
  Release:	9.10

  apt-cache policy playonlinux
    Installed: 3.6-1
    Candidate: 3.6-1

  I expect, when I type: playonlinux  --run "Microsoft Office Word 2007"
  to get a word window
  Instead, I get the error message:
      wine: cannot find '/WINWORD.EXE'
  Idem for all the programs of the suite.

  After looking at the different scripts, I found that all scripts in


  are completely wrong:
  How can somebody make 3 so big errors in a  8-line script, errors that
  prevent the program to start:

  cd "$HOME/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/Office2007/drive_c/Program Files/Microsoft Office/Office12"
  cd "$docpath"
  wine "/POWERPNT.EXE" "$docname"

  1/ the / in the wine command explains the error message
  2/ After removing the /, when giving an argument in the call, the 2nd
    "cd" command cancels the 1st one, which gives the error:

     wine: could not load L"C:\\windows\\system32\\POWERPNT.EXE": Module
  not found

  3/ even after correcting these 2 errors, i.e replacing the last 4
  lines by just:

     wine "POWERPNT.EXE" $1

     it works only if the given file is in the same directory as the .EXE
     to make it to work, the correct script is:
  export WINEPREFIX="$HOME/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/Office2007"
  export WINEDEBUG="-all"
  EXE="$HOME/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/Office2007/drive_c/Program Files/Microsoft Office/Office12"
  wine "${EXE}/POWERPNT.EXE" $1
