If its the 2008 version then it should be, there documentation says this.

No. With Windows you can never assume that something that works with previous version will work with the new version. It most likely will work but there is no guarantee. You may need to run the application in compatibility mode if it gives you problems in Vista.

Hay! my laptop is toshiba satellite A135 s4527 home vista. but i run my laptop with oprating system windows XP2. how it possible. please help me


Hello and welcome to fixya.

In your case, im assuming you refer to the "Vista sticker" that is on the laptop. If a computer is vista-compatible this doesn't mean that it is not able to run older Operating Systems (such as Windows XP SP2) as well.

The sticker on the laptop just referes to the type of Operating System that came pre-installed with it. Now if you bought the laptop and asked your salesman for a DOWNGRADE TO XP Operating System or if this is what he understood then it will probably come with Windows XP instead of Vista Home.

This also applies if you are working for a company in which case the company's IT Department will decide what type of Operating System is to be installed on this computer.

Overall: Newer computers/laptop models that support Windows Vista can also run Windows XP

ALSO: Check for the OEM sticker in the back of the laptop or bottom (it looks like THIS for XP or THIS for windows vista Home Premium). This determines whether you can use a vista DVD to upgrade your computer later from XP to Vista.

If you have any more questions just let me know.


Thanks

Microsoft Office 2003 Professional - Picture manager


Fixed the problem - Even though the pc checks for updates automatically I should have checked to see if there were any available updates at the microsoft website. There were 3 available and once downloaded and installed the picture manager part of office suite professional 2003 is now working just fine!

Product key


Usually for laptops that come bundle with Windows Vista, there is only a 30-60 day trial of Office 2007 and not the full version. So unless stated otherwise, there will be no product key for Office 2007 with the laptop and you will need to buy Office 2007.

Microsoft Office Suite 2008


Do a "Complete" install - the next screen should give you the chance to select the items that you want to have installed on the computer.

Click on each one that you DO NOT want - select "Entire feature will be unavailable" - and leave Word alone.

Continue the Install process and only Word will be installed.

Good luck.
