Some people have reported success running Publisher 97 and I 
think 2000 under cxoffice, but it's not officially supported.  
I'd join the discuss at wine.codeweavers.com list and poke around 
the archives a bit....

To get this at least marginally audio related, I have 
successfully run Buzz (sort of like a tracker with aspirations 
towards doing almost everything Jack does, but only for windows 
and orphaned for a few years) under cxoffice with good results, 
albeit only to get some .wav files of the stuff I'd already done 
in it so I wouldn't lose the data.
