Looking for SeamlessRDP and winbind

My goal is to help someone run Excel 2013 on Arch Linux. I'm exploring the wine / Crossover / PlayOnLinux options, as well as KVM.

For PlayOnLinux, I need winbind, but I don't find any package with that name.

For KVM, SeamlessRDP was recommended, and I also do not find any Arch package for that.

Do they have other names? Or should I be looking for different projects that implement this now? I have little to no experience with Windows stuff (either on Windows or on Linux).

Thank you. I found winbind in samba and installed Office 2013 with PlayOnLinux. But I cannot get Excel to run after a lot of troubleshooting effort. I'm questioning why even go thru this effort to run proprietary software. I will try again to find out if there are open source alternatives that will meet the requirements. Failing that, I think I will try the VM route.

Multi-init booting with apg Openrc and systemd coexisting
Automounting : not needed, i prefer pmount
Aur helpers : makepkg + my own local repo === rarely need them

For running office in a virtual machine, maybe look at this project: https://github.com/Fmstrat/winapps
