Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Am trying to install Office 2007 Academic on to at least one of my Vista laptops:the diskdrive makes horrible grinding noises and quits before disk has been recognised. My destop (Windows 2003)has no troubling reading the disk. Is this a Vista compatibility problem or an incompatibility with a laptop disk drive do you think?

    Thank you hlangston for your reply. I should have mentioned that it is only the Office 2007 disk twhich both my laptops have trouble reading. The newest of the two grinds and never reads the disk. The older laptop grinds away at first, but will read the disk eventually. Could it be that the newer drive is too sensetive for its own good? Microsoft concedes that it might be a problem with disk but this seems unlikely to them as it can be read perfectly by my desktop. Awaiting contact by HP on what they think might be problem/solution....

Sounds like a bad disk drive. I'd replace the drive.

    It seems to just make since that it is the drive. Have you tried other cd/dvd's to see if they also do the same thing?

MS vista and MS office 2007 installation


You install disk is corrupt (probably from a scratch on the disk), you can download a new copy to burn, making sure it passes the MD5 checksum after download is complete (and use your key during installation).

Hi kasibual

MS OFFICE POWERPOINT HOME AND STUDENT 2007 ACADEMIC LICENSE

You do not say where you obtained your MS Office PowerPoint Home & Student 2007 Academic Version. If this program originally came from a Microsoft Authorized or other legitimate source with the original installation disc and Product ID and was, when new, an unused, unregistered, unactivated, genuine version but you have either mislaid or damaged the original disc, then you could beg, borrow or buy any MS Office Home & Student 2007 Academic Version disc with which to re-install the program, using your original Product ID when a code is requested during the installation process. You could borrow a disc from a friend or an educational institution. You could go to a local repair centre with a comprehensive software library. You could buy a replacement disc on eBay.

http://office.microsoft.com/en-gb/help/installation-and-activation-information-for-2007-microsoft-office-programs-HA010173340.aspx

If you obtained MS Office PowerPoint Home & Student 2007 Academic Version from a third party, you will have difficulty knowing whether it is genuine, unused, unactivated and unregistered.

If you were hoping to be able to download MS Office PowerPoint Home & Student 2007 Academic Version, then you should be aware that Product Full, genuine, licensed versions of Microsoft Products cannot usually be downloaded. Microsoft have withdrawn downloads and direct sales of MS Office 2007 applications, the only remaining support services being updates and security patches during Automatic Updates. If there is some obstacle to your installing , here are some constructive, useful, helpful, practical alternative options to consider instead. One option is to download MS Office 2010 Pro 60-Day Trial and install it, carefully following each step:

Go to: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/try


If you do not want to buy or cannot afford a full, licensed copy of MS Office PowerPoint Home & Student 2007 Academic Version and/or prefer to pursue the downloading option, consider the latest version of genuine, similar free comprehensive Office Suite applications - OpenOffice and LibreOffice- downloadable free, from their original source, at:

www.openoffice.org

http://www.libreoffice.org/

You can use OpenOffice and LibreOffice simultaneously with MS Office 2010 Pro 60-DayTrial. If you delete MS Office 2010 Pro 60-Day Trial, well before the 60 day expiry date, and Remove all components of it from Add or Remove Programs (or its equivalent in your Operating System) and Restart before downloading and installing it again, it is usually possible to enter into further 60 Day trial periods. If you are determined to continue using it but there is some insurmountable obstacle to your installing MS Office 2007, then you might have to purchase a full, genuine, unused and licensed copy of the software from a reputable, reliable supplier, such as Amazon:


http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_i_2_13?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=ms+publisher+2007&sprefix=MS+Publisher+#/ref=nb_sb_ss_i_0_18?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=ms+powerpoint+2007&sprefix=ms+powerpoint+2007&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Ams+powerpoint+2007

Online offers of Free Licences, Product keys or Downloads of MS Office products are probably almost universally either not genuine, illegal, unlicensed or pre-used licence versions, downloadable only from illicit download sites or sites that are masquerading non-existent MS Office products as camouflage for the marketing of other (often unrelated) software, products or services. Even if you do succeed in finding a Product ID or download site that seems to work for MS Office PowerPoint Home & Student 2007 Academic Version, you will still have to purchase a separate, genuine, unused Activation Code for the product before you can successfully install it, use it with confidence, register it, activate it and download and benefit from Updates and Security Patches for it from Microsoft.

I hope this helps.

Microsoft office 2007 pro installer and key


Make sure your system spec's will run it and also your OS is up to date with updates,xp is sp3 and vista is sp1, I am testing sp2 and it
has fixed a lot of problems with vista,it should be released to public
around April. If you are try to run from a download and not the disk,it could be a bad download.

If you can, watch what the error is when installing and post it.

Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007


Hi,

In my experience, when you're buying new laptop especially with Windows Vista Bundled (pre-installed), they will also install Microsoft Office 2007 Evaluation Version, which mean you have to supply activation code which also mean you have to buy it! (the license). Except the full version of Microsoft Office has been stated as "included" in your purchase.

If you don't want to bother to invest by buying Microsoft Office 2007, you can try to use "open office" which is free and support Microsoft office format also (http://www.openoffice.org/)

Can't get Student version to auto-set up


There are a number of bugs with Vista and the later versions of Office (like 2007). Try running "setup.exe" from the Office disk and use great caution before installing SP1 for Office 2007 since the SP1 auto-install can cause problems with Vista.

PRODUCT KEY 25 CHARACTER 2007 HELP


Unfortunately, these are trial versions that come pre-installed with Windows. You do not have the software because the full version was not included in your purchase.
Good news, though. The 2007 Student & Teacher (academic) version, which includes Excel, Powerpoint, and Word, is only $79 at newegg.com and it has free shipping.

Windows Vista and Office Pro 2003


hi, yes you can install office 2003 while you already have office 2007. you just need to change the installation directory when you launch the setup for office 2003. change it into something apart from what office 2007 already is installed in. so what you're trying to say is that you should be entitled to an upgrade to office 2007 if office 2003 doesn't work? i would maybe think so... but no solid answer for that one.
