No.. it won't.. office versions are backward compatible meaning a newer version will work with files made on a previous office versions and not vicerversa.

if you don't want to pay for office 2007 you have 2 options

1. look for a bootleg copy... don't expect support from microsoft or updates.. and I don't feel right telling you where to look for them but they do exist in internet if you want to look around (although be noted I'm not suggesting this option as it is illegal)

2. try the opensource version of office called open office.. the bad thing about this option is that the files produced by Microsoft Office 2007, called Office Open XML, OpenXML, OOXML, Office 12, .docx, .docm, .xlsx are not yet supported by open office but you have some options to covert those files to file version that can be opened and worked with open office... and as per the link below support is coming up for those files in open office so for now it would be a good option if you're planning on spending 0 dollares on your office suite.

Dear tiffy,

Ms office 97 will not suit your vista OS. so either you have to buy a new Ms office product or you can try installing Open office 2.01 software for free.

thanks,

From Service Pack 3 with Microsoft office 2007, how do i change my operating system to MS office 2007?


Hi, there!
As I know, MS office is a software to use for office works such as typing document, calculate and basic office database. MS Office software is NOT an operating system. You can not change you operating system to MS Office 2007. I think you meant is: Install Service Pack 3 of Microsoft Office 2007 on your computer. To do so, you first need the Microsoft Office 2007 software on your computer or you need MS Office 2007 disk. The Service Pack 3 of MS Office 2007 is the update only not the actual software to use.

Hope this will help. Thanks for reading.

Gentlemen: I have downloaded MS 2007 for free from Brothersoft website. After installation, i can't use all the programs, such as excel and word. Every time i attempt to encode, this statement flashes...


Microsoft Products including Office 2007 are licensed software and cannot be used without the product key. You can only download the trial version.
Instead you can use OpenOffice, which is an absolutely FREE and open source office and productivity suite. Refer here to my earlier solution regarding Office Suite. OR. If you wish to use Office 2003, you have to uninstall Office 2007.
To uninstall you can use any uninstaller or uninstall the program using "Add Remove Programs" from the control pannel. As stated by you, if you are having problems uninstalling MS Office 2007, as a work around, manually delete the MS Office 2007 folder from the 'C:\Program Files' and Start Menu. After that you can use the following software to fix the registry entries left by Office 2007 and the remaining files etc.

-You can use Registry fixing software/utility. I have come across a Registry Tool, which is effective to fix common Registry issues. Its Free, small size, easy to use and completely safe. Click here to download CCleaner. Install CCleaner, Click 'ISSUES' and 'SCAN FOR ISSUES' and then click 'FIX SELECTED ISSUES'. Also, Run cleaner from the main interface of CCleaner.

Make a backup of the registry and proceed. You may proceed without registry back, if you like.


Hope it helps! Good Luck!

SOFTWARE MICROSOFT 2007 DOWNLOAD


MS Office 2007 is available here:
http://www.nextag.com/MS-office/shop-html?nxtg=3a570a1c0591-970B8697213DFCAC

Why not just get Office 2010? Office 2010 has the same great basic layout as 2007, just more features, and you can try it for free:
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/try/

If you don't like the price of Office 2010, try Open Office: http://www.openoffice.org/
Open office will open and save documents as .doc (Microsoft documents) so they can be read by Microsoft Office products. Open Office really is a good product, and it is FREE.

Microsoft also has a free online Office (Skydrive):

Sorry, but if you are looking for a free download of Microsoft Office 2007, we are not allowed to provide that info on this site because it is illegal.

I have xp i have 512 MB RAM and P3 processer but i cant not install ms office 2007


In order to install any software, it is imperative to ensure that the computer in question meets or exceeds the minimum requirements.

Foremost, Microsoft Office Basic/Standard/Home & Student/Professional/Small Business/Professional Plus/Enterprise 2007 require a CD-ROM or DVD drive. Microsoft Office Ultimate 2007 requires a DVD drive.

Microsoft Office Basic/Standard/Home & Student/Professional/Small Business/Professional Plus/Enterprise/Ultimate 2007 requires a system that has at least 500 MHz (since a Pentium III can range in speed from 450 MHz to 1.4GHz, it seems likely that you've met this specification); & at least 256 MB of RAM (your system's 512 MB meets this & is the minimum amount recommended for Outlook Instant Search).

However, you did not make mention of which service pack (1, 2, or 3) that is installed on your version of MS Windows XP (MS Office Basic/Standard/Home & Student/Professional/Small Business/Professional Plus/Enterprise/Ultimate 2007 requires at least SP2); nor did you mention how much free disk space is on your system. MS Office Basic/Standard/Home & Student 2007 requires at least 1.5 GB (MS Office Professional/Small Business/Professional Plus/Enterprise 2007 requires at least 2 GB of free disk space & MS Office Ultimate 2007 requires at least 3 GB of free disk space. Also, MS Office Basic/Standard/Home & Student/Professional/Small Business/Professional Plus/Enterprise 2007 requires an Internet browser comparable to at least Internet Explorer 6 (IE6).

By the way, OneNote Instant Search & OneNote Audio Search require a CPU of at least 2 GHz & at least 1 GB of RAM. 1 GB of RAM is also the minimum requirement for grammar & contextual spelling in Word. Business Contact Manager requires a CPU of at least 1 GHz & at least 512 MB of RAM. Since you did not mention your exact iteration of MS Win XP (Home/Professional/Professional 64-Bit), it is important to note that "Send to OneNote 2007" print driver, Internet Fax, & Groove Folder Synchronization are not available on 64-bit operating systems.

Furthermore, I do not find it reasonable to quote any more specifications such as those for MS Office Accounting products unless found necessary, besides such specs are readily available at http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/products/2007-microsoft-office-release-system-requirements-HA010166865.aspx?CTT=1.

It is entirely possible that the cause of installation failure could be a faulty optical disk drive (CD/DVD/etc.) an invalid product key or perhaps an operating system (OS) which the installation deems to not be genuine.

Normal.dotm Won't Adopt Macros & Code is Seen as Full of Bugs


It sounds like your Anti-Virus or Spyware is blocking and won' t allow access, it thinks its harmful, try turning off the Virus software installed, do your thing and then turn the software back on. If thats not it then your Software is damaged and you will have to install a new copy of Office. Good Luck.

Can my HP Photosmart C4380 support Microsoft Office Professional 2007 Fax and Scan? Or must the HP fax and scan only be used?


Sorry, Fax and Scan is part of Windows Vista not MS Office. I have been advised by PC World team that this printer (HP Photosmart C4380) does not have the necessary drivers to support Vista Fax and Scan wirelessly and can only operate with the HP Fax and Scan which is very basic and only seems to function via USB cable, not wirelessly. Update drivers may become available.
