    Office 365 problem on Win 10 Pro in Virtualbox under Linux Mint


    Hello everyone.

    I'm running Linux Mint 19.3, Cinnamon edition, and it's up-to-date.

    I'm also running Windows 10 Pro as a guest in VirtualBox under LM. The Win 10 installation is up-to-date - Version 1909, OS build 18363.720. I subscribe to Office 365 Home.

    My problem arises when I install Office 365 - either from Microsoft Store or direct from the Office web site. It appears to install correctly but when I run Excel, Word, etc they start correctly but the display in the app has a white background with the occasional black box within it, which is unusable.

    However when I attempt to run the virtual machine (in VBox) on a native Windows 10 Home system the apps start and display correctly.

    This isn't a deal-breaker because I can use the online apps, or the mobile apps which I install on the Win 10 Pro guest running on LM. (Strangely, I can't find Excel Mobile, for example, in the Microsoft Store. I have to search for it online - which, I guess, is because it's intended for mobile devices not a Win 10 system on a PC.)

    Any help/guidance most gratefully received,

    Steve

  3. Cortana & Office 365 Integration

    We are trying to integrate Cortana with our Office 365 subscription, but it never works. Here are the steps we have done:



    • Turned on Cortona in the Office 365 Admin portal
    • We are using Windows 10 1703 – connected Office 365 service to Cortana
    Did the same on windows 10 mobile with no luck, Cortana says its connected to Office 365, but sees no data and we are getting zero errors

    We went rough office 365 support first and tried all fo their suggestions, they kicked us over to Windows support which is currently closed.

    We are on v1703 with all updates in place, it does not work on Windows 10 desktop or mobile

    any ideas? I can give you all steps 365 support had us run through if that will be helpful

    Thank you

    Doug
