MS Office is only bundled set of Office applications software eg. Winword, Excel, etc.......It had nothing to do with the compatibility isuses with any devices like printers, fax or scanmner, etc....
Compatibility isuses are with the Operating Systems (OS) eg.XP,Vista, Win 7 ... on your PCs. Different OS require different versions of Devices "Drivers & software" . If you can successfully install your device Drivers & software for the AIO "Lexmark x5470" on your PC Operating System, you should be able to print, scan or fax from MS Office applications.
in new laptops loaded with vista, only Vista is legitimate but Office 2007 is a 90-day trial software. you need to purchase the key code from microsoft. but if piracy is not an issue to you, visit the piratebay dot org
THIS IS THE PITS! I HAVE FOUGHT THE SAME THING ON MY HP LAPTOP WITH VISTA HOME PREM, AND MY DESKTOP HAS WIN XP PRO,SP2. MT VISTA HAS CRASHED ABOUT A THOUSAND TIMES AND MY XP PRO IS AS STABLE AS A ROCK! THERE IS NO SOLUTION TO THE XP DOCUMENTS. VISTA IS NOT BACKWARD COMPATIBLE AS XP IS WITH OLDER VERSIONS AND IT IS A PAIN WITH EMAIL ATTACHMENTS! IF IT IS CAUSING PROBLEMS WITH YOUR WORK I WOULD DO THE FOLLOWING. VISTA CAN BE REMOVED EXCEPT FOR THE FILE ITSELF AND XP CAN BE PUT ON YOUR NOTEBOOK. YOU THEN WOULD BE ABLE TO FUNCTION AS BEFORE. ANY GOOD COMPUTER SHOP CAN DO THIS SWAP QUICKLY AND HAVE YOU RUNNING AGAIN. I LOOKED INTO IT AND YOU JUST HAVE TO MAINTAIN THE VISTA FILE FOR THE SYSTEM TO FUNCTION BUT THEN THE XP OS CAN BE ADDED AS THE OPERATING OS. THIS DOES NOT CAUSE ANY DAMAGE AND LATER IF YOU WANT TO GO BACK TO VISTA YOU CAN JUST DELETE XP AND REINSTALL THE VISTA FILE AND EVERYTHING IS BACK THE WAY IT WAS. IT CAN BE DONE. AND YOU DON'T HAVE TO GIVE UP YOUR NOTEBOOK OR THE DUO-CORE AND HEAVY MEMORY ETC! CHOICE IS YOURS! HOPE THIS HAS GIVING YOU SOME HOPE AND AN IDEA ON HOW TO PROCEED. IF I CAN HELP MORE, JUST REPLY TO:
