Installing Office 2007 Ultimate

Q: Installing Office 2007 Ultimate

Pretty basic for those that know but I've just bought discs for Office 2007 Ultimate and need some reassurance. Do I need to completely unistall my current OEM (Dell) Office Professional 2003 before I begin and (knowing my luck if it all goes pear-shaped) will I be able to painlessly re-intall the OEM if neccessary (I have discs). Does one then have to download years of updates from the MS site or how does that work? Sort of trying to know the pit-falls before I start as I'm pretty much alone in this. Much appreciate any advice. Cheers.

Preferred Solution: Installing Office 2007 Ultimate

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Installing Office 2007 Ultimate

There is a small bit of a problem when going from trial software to commercial versions, but that doesn't sound like your issue.

Going from any Office version to some newer version of Office should not be a problem, at all.

So, short answer, NO,
you should not have any issues in going from one version of Office to a newer version. All of your files will open just fine.

Even if you wanted to go from a trial version to a commercial or now-legal, paid-for version is not hard, as long as you follow the directions.

A COUPLE THINGS you may find different with Office 2007.
First is the new appearance of the controls. There is now the new "command ribbon" where all the old command selections now look different, and some things are moved. I don't like it, but I am slowly learning the new look.
I have read there is a way of shutting off the ribbon, to get back to the "old" way/look, but I haven't bothered. I want to learn what most people are going to suffer with.

Second) and this is the BIGGIE, all the files that you create are now going to be the new MS version of XML formated documents. That means your expected saves of ".DOC" and ".XLS" documents are now the new ".DOCX" and ".XLSX" file extensions.

You can change the default saving formats to be the old Office 97-2003 formats, if you want. Since the new .xxxX (X on the end) formats are unique to MS Office 2007, you might want to consider changing the defaults, if only to minimize the problems if you share your documents with others.

Office 2007 can still open and save either format, and many others as well. But changing the defaults to what we are used to might minimize the problems - for now.

I am running a copy of Office 2007 Ultimate that I got through an academic program. I need to install a key for Office 2010 on a new system. The cost for the key only is about $20 less than a 3 license traditional disk version, so I am considering upgrading every system.

However, I don't want to lose MS Access or MS Publisher to upgrade.

If I install Office 2010 Home & Student over Office 2007 Ultimate, will the extra programs from Office 2007 still be available to me? I know they will not be upgraded, but having a few different versions floating around doesn't bother me.

I got a copy of Office 2007 Ultimate from The Ultimate Steal which worked fine on XP and Vista 32-bit.

I try running the installer on Win7 64-bit but get the error "The installation of this package failed". The file is X12-30307.exe.

I try extracting it via cmd: X12-30307.exe /extract:Office2007. This works fine. I then run the setup file in the extracted folder and it starts fine (I can see it in the Task Manager) but it closes after a few seconds. I have tried running the file in compatibility mode but no luck.

Has anyone had the same issues or know why it doesn't work?

Hey guys, my wife is taking a course that requires her to install Office 2010. The issue is that she wants to preserve her current setup which includes Office 2003 and 2007 existing side-by-side on her Windows 7 (64-bit Home Edition) notebook.
The 2003/2007 setup is not one that she really wants to mess with (i.e., she has no interest whatsoever in uninstalling the two Office suites that she currently has), so ideally she would like to have Office 2010 installed temporarily (for the duration of her course) on the machine without interfering with the current setup.
What is the most painless way of doing this that does not involve shelling out for a second computer?

A:Installing Office 2010 on a machine with Office 2003/2007

Hi, welcome to the forum,
I had a similar situation here but in the end I opted out.

I removed both Office 2003 and 2007 and installed 2010, I then used virtual XP and installed 2003 there, 2007 and 2010 are too similar and the dll's will 'bite' along the way.

Even my 2003 and 2007 gave me issues after some time.

Have you checekd what the Microsoft Support site says?

I do not own a fax mechine in my home.

I have written a document and filled in a PDF form and saved in my computer.

I have written my document in the Office Enterprise 2007-Word on my desktop that has Win 7 Ultimate x64 OS.

Is ther a free software that I could use to fax my document using my broadband connection directly from my computer to a destination that request my document & the PDF form?


A:How could I fax in office Enterprise 2007 &Win 7 Ultimate x64?

Fax (or facsimile as it stands) for uses A Fax Modem, so an old fashioned 56k PCI Fax/Modem can be used to send Faxs using Windows built in fax facilities (see the Fax device in Devices and Printers) which can be configured to use the Fax/Modem.

A less well known way is Fax over IP, which uses VOIP (Voice over IP facilities), so you could use a Skype account and an add-on called PamFax (Use Skype As a Fax Machine: Send a Fax from Computer).

The only other way it so Email the PDF to the user, FTP it to a FTP file server, or use a Instant Messaging utility such as Windows, MSN, Google or Yahoo chat to send it over your broadband network to another user.

I purcased MS OFiice 2010 Professional through the MS Home Use Program to replace MS Office 2007.

I received the link and product key via e-mail; I've ordered the CD's but they won't arrive for another 2 weeks.

Several posts indicated that I should uninstall the 2007 version, then install the 2010 version. If I do that, I won't have access to the e-mail for the download.

Should i just install 2010 over 2007, or wait for the CD's?

I currently have Office 2003 Student full version installed on my computer. I have received Office Professional Plus 2007 Student media version. Do I need to uninstall Version 2003 prior to installing 2007 or will installation of version 2007 automatically uninstall version 2003. Does all the information in my .pst file convert as necessary for use in Outlook 2007. There are two discs, one called "Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2007" and the other one called "Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2007 (Microsoft Office Communicator 2007". I'm guessing that the disk with the shorter title "Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2007" would be the correct one to install. What is the second disk with Communicator?

A:Solved: Installing Office 2007 over Office 2003??

Read other 7 answers

Originally, I had Office 2003 installed in my computer, & a trial version of 2007 that had already expired.
Today I installed a full version of Microsoft Office 2007, without removing any of the other two versions from my computer. I realized that it seemed to automatically remove the older version. I`m not bother about it not being there, as I got the new version, but I wonder if this is an automatic uninstalling that Office does, or if the version is still there but I can`t see it, as I would like to remove it properly if it`s still somewhere in my computer.
I checked in Control Panel & the only thing I can see is "Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007", the full version I just installed, & everything that come with it. No 2003 anywhere.
Does this mean 2003 is fully uninstalled?
Thanks a lot!!

A:My office 2003 disappeared after installing office 2007

You can check to see if it is fully uninstalled (I am sure that it is) by going to search and typing the name there. If it is still present, the program will appear.

Worst case scenario, just remanants will remain. Download and use ccleaner. If you run this software, you can be certain that 2003 has gone to software heaven.

If given the option not to use the reg cleaner inculuded in ccleaner take it. I and many others at the forum feel that reg cleaners do more harm than good.

I recently bought Office 2007 Ultimate and would like to have it on my laptop and desktop. I know MS doesn't like this for the OS itself, but Office shouldn't be a problem, right? I use my desktop for documents at home but sometimes I use my laptop when I'm away and it would be inconvenient if I have to buy another license just to install the program on it legitimately. And if that isn't an option, if I decided to do it anyway, would MS send death ninjas to my door step?

I don't think they would send ninjas. But watch for lawyers.....

I believe the license on Office is two computers.....?
You would need to read the EULA.

I bought Office Ultimate through the itsnotcheating website quite a while ago now when the offer was first introduced. I've just upgraded to Win 7 and need to reinstall it. I still have the valid product key but do not have any of my order details or the original downloaded file.

Is there a legitimate link/source where I could download this file from?

Thanks very much for any help.

A:Office Ultimate 2007 download link?

Hi there
try the Trial and then use your legitimate key.

Try Microsoft Office 2007 - Download Microsoft Office Software

I assume this works since MS will send a key if you want to purchase it.

If it doesn't work just ring the activation center (activate by phone) and explain the problem -- say you've downloaded the trial but you've got a valid key.

They'll give you a new product code.

In spite of a lot of negative postings that you see about MS -- they are actually quite reasonable if you explain the problem.

I have been running a new PC, ASUS Z97-WS, for about six months.  Over 80% of my application crashes are related to Microsoft products.  I am running WIN7 Ultimate x64, using Office 2007.  Word crashes regularly and normally reports “… software exception (0xe00000002) …”  I have run hardware tests, including Word diagnostics without finding errors.  Word tends to fail when saving a file for the first time.  If it recovers it normally looses the data entered, it sometimes shows repairs related to image objects but is vague on details.  If Word saves a file successfully, it seems to run fine from that point forward.
I have all the latest Microsoft updates, BIOS updates, print drivers, and have disabled all Word add-ons and have replaced normal.doc.
What would you recommend I try to prevent Word crashes?  Thanks.

PS Office 2007 worked when I installed them on a previous ASUS PC about 7 years ago.

I bought this package from the Ultimate Steal. I got the Download which is the .exe file. Now, when I double-clicked on this instead of coming up with the box whis says "run" etc straight away, it literally loads (the little blue circle thing going round and round lol) for about 10 minutes. Finally the box will come up. It will then take ages for the box toc ome up which says to give permissions (as admin). Once it did thsi it installed fine.
Everything seemed fine until I tried to use Microsoft Word with an image in the document. As soon as I tried to save, it would say "not responding" and freeze for about 5 minutes and then eventually save. The typing etc would also be slow in the document if there was an image present and other programmes which were open such as Internet Explorer would also be slow.
Today I un-installed Microsoft Office. I am wanting to know whether I should use the same .exe file, which I have saved on desktop, or whether I should try and download it again. Could I contact Microsoft for support and will it be free?

I have vista ultimate x64 service pack 2 + automatic updates, office 2007. The same software and hardware configuration is on 4 computers. All 4 have the same problem after a while since fresh installation.

- outlook (startup, or later) the window appears but when I click on it, it's status changes to Not Responding, and it freezes.
- word, the startup logo appears in the center of the screen but the window doesn't.
- excel, seems to work but when I use software that uses excel I get automation error in that software.
- any other program works like: total commander, my own software (.NET), sandboxie, yahoo messenger, opera, firefox.
- vmware, no problem, but when I try to start a virtual machine vmware freezes too.
- sidebar is frozen too, it doesn't redraw.
This problem has a random behavior after restart things go to normal. After 3-5 restarts the problem reappears. Or even after using the computer for 6-7 hours.
I can see each process with task manager but they are not listed in applications. If I kill them and reopen there's no change.

Hey all,
I'm running Windows Vista (SP1) and I recently purchased a license key via Microsoft (via their ultimate steal offer) for Microsoft Office Ultimate 2007.

Once I had paid, I received a license key and a link to the installation file (which is around 550MB).

I downloaded the file, however whenever I try opening it (either by double clicking it or right clicking), Documents hands ("Not responding") and then eventually my whole PC tends to crash.

Once my computer even went to the blue screen of death (for a brief moment), saying something about a stop error? Sorry, I didn't catch it.

Could this be a faulty .exe I downloaded (if so, where can I re-download?) or a fault with my laptop? I've had some similar problems with explorer.exe in the past (the right click menu sometimes takes a while to appear), and explorer.exe sometimes crashes when I try open random files (even pictures sometimes).

EDIT: I've run virus-scans etc and they've all come back clean. I've also run a couple of explorer.exe tweaks (running in classic mode, disable thumbnails) but they haven't solved it.

Any help would be appreciated.

When you install Office 2007, it will find Office XP and ask if you want to replace it. If you say "no," it will install 2007 in a different directory, keeping both versions of Office with one exception. You cannot have more than one version of Outlook, so regardless of what you choose, Outlook will be replaced.

I would prefer not to uninstall it, because if my friend`s 3 computer licence has expired, & I have already uninstalled my trial version, then I`m stuck, & I won`t have even a trial period left on my computer, which is useful to open certain Powerpoint, Word files, even if I can`t create new ones.
Can I go ahead & install my friends Office Cd without unistalling my trial version?


A:Installing office 2007

I don't know for sure but it might be possible, you will need the product key during the install and I would imagine if it had already been used the 3 times you would not be able to continue with the install.

Don't forget to make a restore point before doing anything, you could also make an image of your system then if it didn't work you could restore the image and be back where you were before starting the install.

Those are my thoughts I don't know if they are any use to you, please let us know what happens if you do decide to go ahead.

I have Vista installed and two days ago went out and bought Microsoft Office 2007 because I need it for college.

I can't install it.

Error message: component 1935 failed to install....rolling back.

Is this a NetFramework 2.0 error? Or something else?

I can't uninstall or repair any of the Netframework updates either. I'd have to do it manually.

I turned off Firewall, AVG, etc, etc and tried installing 2007 again but with no success...

I am trying to install the upgrade version of Microsoft Office Small Business 2007.
I have an office Suite 2005 Disc.
I was able to successfully install the new office suite on my lap top, but am unable to install it on the other 2 office computers.
Here is whats happaning:
I put in the Upgarde disc and then it asks for the disc of an older office suite. So I put in the old disc, but the computer is unable to read the disc or something because what happens every time is that the computer freazes up and I have to restart the whole system. And it will not install. Is there anything I can do to show that I have on older version of office suite so that I can still install the new version?
please help!
Thank you.

I just got a new laptop with the Office 60 day free trial installed.

I bought a new Microsoft Office Professional 2007 Product Upgrade License from DRI, Microsoft's reseller. This did not come with any media.

When I go to the Activation wizard to enter the new product key, I get the following error:

"The key is incorrect. Verify that you have the correct key and then retype it."

The key is entered correctly.

Do I need actual media to load this upgrade? If so, what do I need?

I even installed Office 2000, then tried to install 2007 using media I had from another installation. I entered the new product key, but got the same error.

Any ideas?

This is probably a ridiculously stupid question, but...

I purchased a Dell Inspiron 530 desktop computer for my family last summer (XP OS) and had Microsoft Office Home & Student 2007 installed on it. Therefore, I have an unopened disk with the product key on the back.

I'm going to be purchasing a new laptop from Dell this summer for my own personal use (Vista OS) and I need Office 2007 on it. I am not going to pay to have it installed since I have a brand new disk that I purchased last summer.

Since my desktop is XP and my laptop will be Vista, it will still install correctly, right? I assume Office 2007 is compatible with both OS?


A:Installing Office 2007 on my new laptop

Is the product key on the disk the same key that the installation of Office is using? The license follows the key not the physical disk. It doesn't matter if it's unopened.

As to whether or the license can be used on multiple computers, you'd have to consult the specific license agreement for that installation.

Hi there guys.......
may you guys confirm me my doubt?!

I cant finish installing the office sp1, I allready installed the 946691 update and it gives me the same error.
I am starting to think it is ther free space on mu C: drive, that is a bit under 4gb!

What you guys think?

A:Problems Installing Office 2007 SP1!

Hello Th?oPatrizi,

First off, can you please post the error message you get or take a screenshot of it? 4GB shouldn't be a problem for Microsoft Office itself (Only 200-500mb), but that is dangerously low. I recommend you uninstall some unused programs with the Windows Uninstaller.

Go to Control Panel -> Programs, Uninstall a Program.

You should try to keep more than 15gb if possible, this allows for maximum system performance and is considered a "safe" level for your pc to be at.

We will try to help you more when you post the error your getting.

Hi all,

Is it possible to install Office 2007 in another partition example i have install Windows 7 on C: drive ..is it possible to install office in D: drive?

A:Installing Office 2007 in another partition

Yes it's possible, you'll just have a mess to clean-up when/if you reinstall Windows; create a specific folder for it on the target partition, don't just let it install all over the place, if you know what I mean.

Hello Guys,

I am a new member so here goes my first post. I am trying to install Office 2007 Professional Plus on a Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit OS. I just got the PC recently and it came with a trial version of Office 2007 installed on it. When I launch the Setup.exe for Office, I get the following error message:

"Setup could not find any products to install. Please contact your system administrator"

I have tried to run the "Setup.exe" file as an administrator and have also tried to run Setup in Windows XP compatibility mode using the "Troubleshoot compatibility" menu.

I have searched for this particular problem on the web and I have found a few refences alluding to difficulties in uninstalling office but not for installing it.

Any help would be appreciated.

Btw, the setup log file included the following error message:

A:Problem installing Office 2007 Pro Plus

Hi, and Welcome To The Seven Forums
Not sure why you are having the problem, albeit instead of testing Office 2007, why not jump over to Microsoft.com type in Microsoft Office 2010 beta, and download the Office 2010 beta. Since the one that comes (should) with your new computer is only good for 90 days, or less the 2010 beta is good until October with the Retail version hitting the shelves in July or August.

Again welcome, and good luck.

I keep getting the following error when trying to reinstall MS Office 2007:

Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007 encountered an error during setup.
Error 25004.Config.Xml not specified. A valid Config.Xml file must be authored when deploying '(null)'.

Strange this is that when I go to Control Panel to remove the previous 2007 installation, it is not in the list.

I have been using Office 2000 with XP + SP3 on my desktop but now also have a laptop with Vista + SP1.

I have decided to install Office 2007 onto the laptop, initially, and would like to know if there are likely to be any problems that I should be aware of, or likely to experience before I install?

Is the 2007 version very different to 2000?

A:Installing Office 2007 with Vista + SP1

Many other options with 2007. Same platform though can't see any issues at all installing Office 2007. Free for three months I believe unless you have a bought copy. Be sure to update your installation from Microsoft. Automatic updates should have you covered.
