Compatibility With Microsoft Office Xp Professional


I have a notebook (hp) with  vista home premium 64-bit os installed. It has an upgrade for win7 available free under an hp/microsoft upgrade plan. I have a microsoft office xp professional; vs. 2002 program that i want to use. Is the office suite compatible with any of the levels of windows7 upgrades? Hp's free upgrade is only available on this computer for the win7 home premium version. I need to know which works, or doesn't. If it is more cost effective, i would upgrade my office suite.

Compatibility Ms Office 2000 Professional

I am in the market of a new computer and need to make a decision which version of windows 7 to buy. What version of windows 7 will work with office 2000 pro? None or does it matter? I have used outlook 2000 as my email client and created an archive folder with many subfolders. Will they transfer and work without any problems to windows 7? Also, will i be able to open and edit the ms word and excel 2000 files i have created from within windows 7? If not, would i first need to install office 2003 or 2007 or in the near future office 2010 to be able to import all my office 2000 data files and open them from within windows 7 that way?

Lost Microsoft Office Accounting Professional After Upgrade

Where can i locate microsoft office accounting professional 2007? Lost it in system upgrade from vista to windows 7 and i have no disk. I recently upgraded my vista 32-bit to windows 7. I did a clean wipe install and have been reinstalling all my programs. I have no disk for office accounting pro 2007 because i purchased it online. I have a data backup ready to restore but microsoft has discontinued the whole accounting line. I have a product key, i just need a place to get a download or a disk. Can anyone help me? I called ms customer support and digital river (that's who brokered the download) but i'm just getting the runaround.

Btw windows 7 is much better so far than vista

Microsoft Office Xp 2002 Compatibility

I am having problems using my old office xp standard 2002 disc from my old xp computer with my new windows 7 computer. Excel is missing some functions like the summation symbol on the toolbar which allows me to add numbers quickly. In fact, when i try to reload this office xp disc, microsoft says the product key i entered does not exist.

Best buy (where i purchased the computer in january 2010) tells me i need to buy a later microsoft office disc specifically for windows 7 for about $150 otherwise some things will probably never work correctly and i might even mess up the operating system. But some internet forums say just upgrade to office 2003 and all will be fine, except maybe outlook which i never use.

Office 2003 Issue - Microsoft Office End User License Agreement

Windows 7 pro, get "microsoft office end-user license agreement. " From office 2003 programs. I purchased a new hp computer with windows 7 pro, then loaded all of the software i'd been using on my old xp system. Every time i start any office 2003 app, i get a dialog box labeled "microsoft office end-user license agreement. " I must click on "accept" before continuing. I use an old vista solution of 'running as admin' and now i receive a box asking if it is alright to modify this program(registry i think). How can i stop this box from appearing?

Office 2000 Compatibility

Have recently bought windows 7 (starter) netbook, on which i was hoping to use my pre-existing office 2000 word & excel files which are on flash drives (i have the 2000 program on disks) but all attempts to use these files engage the office 2007 suite, which i have no wish to use whatsoever. Is there any way round this annoying obstacle ? I have subsequently read that w7 & office 2000 are not compatible but would welcome any advice on how best to overcome this in the least expensive way please.

Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004 Compatibility

I installed ms flight simulator in windows 7. The installation went smoothly. And i could start ms flight simulator up till the homepage appeared. But: when opening "videoparts" (i.e. The instruction at the start, parts of ms fs with moving pictures) the programme closed and a message said: "a problem has occurred. The programme doesn't work well anymore. The programme will be closed. "
I tried to find if anything was wrong with the compatibility. But everything seems fine. I hope someone can help me with my favorite game-programme.

Compatibility Between Ms Office Project Web Access 2003 And Ie8

Compatibility between microsoft office project web access 2003 (sp3) and ie8 on windows 7. My organization will upgrade all the client desktop computer from xp (sp2) to windows 7 (64-bit) with office 2010 (32-bit) and ie8 by the end of this year. Our group is currently using project server 2003 (sp3) with sql server 2005 (sp3).

I would like to know if the current configuration of client - project professional 2003 and pwa 2003 (sp3) - will be compatible with the new windows 7 environment. In the official microsoft windows 7 compatibility site, project professional 2003 is certified as "compatible", but no information on pwa. I also concerned about pwa and ie8 compatibility. I wonder if anyone knows if pwa2003 can work with ie8 on windows7?

Microsoft Office Outlook 2003

Running windows xp media center edition 2005. I have office 2003 professional. Today, 7 june 09, apparently there were a lot of updates not only to xp but office as well. The .net and silverlight was just a couple of them. Anyway, after that, i rebooted as instructed but now i get an error when i try and reply to someone that has sent me an email. It states :  "the message interface has returned an unknown error. If the problem persists try restarting outlook. "

I have restarted outlook 2003 several times and i get the same error. I haven't changed my email account or anything (it seems) that would cause it not to operate properly as it had for the last year. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Microsoft Office Outlook Malfunctioning

After microsoft automatic update, outlook in vista has stopped working properly. I can open program, write an e-mail or two, and may be able to forward one mail, then program freezes. This happened right after an overnight update. How do i fix this problem without taking away the new updates ? Or stopping automatic updates for the future. Also automatic updates changed all my internet home pages. This was very upsetting. Why? I still have firefox but all my settings got erased. That was not ok with me. I have given permission to do automatic updates to programs but not to reset my personal
Settings. How can i prevent this in the future?

Microsoft Office Home And Student 2007

I just bought a new dell laptop with windows 7 and microsoft office home and student, both installed by dell. When i attempt to get into word i get a message telling my that i have to insert a 25 digit product key. I then found a 25 digit product key on the cd dell provided me and made 5 attempts to type it in the message; but it tells me that it is the wrong product key. I went into help and reached a spot containing word info. It had the words "product key" listed but there were no digits following. I'm really concerned because the message also told me that i will only get 25 chances to enter the product key.

Stopping Microsoft Office Updates Offer

Os: windows 7 home premium 64-bit my computer came preloaded with a trial of microsoft office home and student 2007. I have since uninstalled it. Even though it is no longer installed on my machine, windows update continues to pester me with office updates i do not want or need. I have all updates installed, even a handful of earlier office updates from when i did have the software installed. Since i no longer have office, i have no use for any more updates to it. Therefore i would like to know how to stop this incessant nagging to update office. I would appreciate a real helpful response and not just an irrelevant copy-paste auto-response.

Microsoft Office Pro What Version 64-bit?

I am upgrading to window 7. I just got my computer back from hp repair. Due to the repairs all of the software applications had been removed. The computer came with vista and a free upgrade from hp. I just upgraded to windows 7. Now i need to download my application software and i am starting with my microsoft office professional. I tried to go on the compatibility checker to make sure that the microsoft professional 2007 is compatible.

In checking, the microsoft website says that office professional version 12 is compatible with my 64 bit system. Where do i find my version? I have the original packaging from the store but cannot seem to find the version. How can i make sure it is compatible with a 64 bit system?

Microsoft Office 2007 Error During Setup

I got the error in the title of this but no other errors. None of the kb articles was relevant.

I fixed it by removing anything related to the microsoft office document converter that allowed me to open docx and xlsx file.

I uninstalled the microsoft office document converter but that failed so i had to use the windows installer clean-up utility to remove it.

I deleted everything from the program file/microsoft office/12. 0 folder. In my case there was some visual studio stuff there which i left in place.

I also deleted the keys in hkey_classes_rootinstallerproducts which ended in 01fec (for example 000021091a0090400000000000f01fec) which were related to office 2007.

Product Code For Microsoft Office Word

For christmas of 2009, i was given a brand new toshiba laptop. I was so happy. But recently, i've noticed that i can't use word, due to no product key. This is a major problem for me, as i'm currently trying to write a book and cannot do such efficiently without using office word. I've checked the box the laptop came in, but there's no sign of anything that would likely help.

I have my windows update turned on to automatically download and inform me when updates are available. I then pick the updates i want installed. It seems that everytime i have an update for my microsoft office products i get an error code example 646 and then i have to download the update and manually install. Sometimes this doesn't work. I also am now being told i need to install office 2007 sp2 when i download it and attempt to install it i am told that it is already installed. My copies of office and windows 7 are completely legitimate and bought at the best buy. I had this problem also with vista. I don't understand what is going on.

Error 1402 Problem With Microsoft Office

I had a copy of office 2007 installed that stopped working properly. I tried to uninstall it, but crashed half way through. Now it says i don't have permission to delete the files, and when i try to reinstall it says error 1402 can't write to the registry. I have used the manual and automated attempts to fix security settings, have removed microsoft office from the installer with installer clean up, and done a clean boot to try and get this problem sorted.

Nothing works, it keeps saying i don't have permission. I have the exact same problem with adobe acrobat, it will not let me install and gives the same error message. The adobe fix page just says uninstall all versions and reinstall, but that does not help. I have done multiple spyware scans and virus scans, and am clean.

Microsoft Word In Office Small Business Problem

I bought the m office small business 2007 and installed it on my new computer in july last year on vista. Then i got a free upgrade to w 7 from the manufacturer, and replaced vista, sometime in the fall. All worked fine, until today, when my word is just looking pretty messed up -there is an added icon like thingy on the page screen on any existing word doc. I open or i am trying to create- it looks something like a backwards p with two lines in the tail. Very weird!

I've tried as much as troubleshooting as i could have, but nothing works: i deleted and reinstalled the microsoft suite, i read and searched and looked everywhere, but can't find anything remotely similar to my problem. I'm sure someone out there has seen or heard of this before and might be able to point me in the right direction!
