First attempt without win64 : same results. Installed packages :
charpent at asus16-ec:~$ dpkg -l "*wine*" | grep ii | sed -re
"s/[ \t]+/ /g" | cut -d " " -f 2-3 | xargs echo
libwine:i386 1.6.2-8 libwine-gecko-1.4 1.4+dfsg-2 libwine-gecko-2.21
2.21+dfsg2-1 wine 1.6.2-8 wine32 1.6.2-8

Installation of Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Access ad Office tools. No
outlook no Publisher, etc...

Install goes uneventfully. But the same problem as before appears when
trying to use an app :

When launching Word, a dialog box asking for reconfiguration appears,
and asks for a reboot. Clicking yes leads to a Wine crash, clicking no
opens the application, which seems more or less usable. , if Word, Excel
and Access can be opened (Word with this bizarre procedure above),
Powerpoint fails.

Second attempt, after purging winbind : installation fails (without
hints from Office nor Wine).

No such luck... Still listening for suggestions,
