Office 2007 Compatibility Pack

Q: Office 2007 Compatibility Pack

I am using Office 2003 but need to access Office 2007 documents. Can I download the "Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint File Formats"? Have done this on computers using Windows XP but Windows 7 is not on the list of "Supported Operating Systems".

Preferred Solution: Office 2007 Compatibility Pack

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.)

Hello,

When I try to open a 2007 Word or Excel document I recieve as an attachment in Outlook 2003, I get the following message:
"This action is only valid for products that are currently installed". Office 2007 compatibility pack was installed and it still did not work.

I then uninstalled Office 2003, uninstalled the Office 2007 compatibility pack and then I ran CCleaner to clean up the registry. I updated my OS (currently has Windows XP SP3) with all updates, reinstalled Office 2003, installed Office 2003 SP 3 and then reinstalled the Office 2007 compatibility pack.

I still get the same message when I try to open an Office 2007 attachment in Outlook 2003.

OS is Windows XP SP3 fully updated
Office 2003 SP 3 fully updated

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance for any hel on this issue.

My laptop came preinstalled with the 2007 compatibility pack. I installed Office 2010 the day I bought the laptop. Have been running for many months and never noticed this: the default application to open docx files in the Microsoft Open XML Converter. The default for doc files is Microsoft Word. The only version of Word I have on my computer is 2010. If I remember correctly, the laptop came with a 2007 trial version but I deleted that - I still have a link to "reinstall MS Office trial." Whenever I click on a docx file, it opens in Word. I'm running Win 7 64-bit Home Premium but the 32-bit version of Office 2010.

Here's the strange part: if I set Word as the default application for opening docx files, I lose the Word icon and get what I believe is the Wordpad icon (the standard sheet of paper with corner turned over and lines on it) as my icon for docx files. The registry tells me that the defaulticon for docx files is Wordpad.exe. The icon for doc files is still the Word icon. Same thing happens if I uninstall the compatibility pack, which of course I don't even need, and then I also lose my Excel icon and am "iconless" for Excel files. If I try to set the default icon in the registry to the Word icon, I get a tiny Word icon in lieu of the normal Word icon.

I discovered all this by following this advice for being able to open Word docs stored on Microsoft's Skydrive:

I am not using 2007 office system. I use Microsoft works and WordPad. Can I safely remove the Compatibility Pack(and free all 173 MB HD space it occupies)? Also, what is Microsoft Office Power Point Viewer? Am I using it?

A:Compatibility pack for 2007 office system

The Power Point Viewer allows you to view PowerPoint shows. I would keep that because you might get PP files from your friends thru the mail - like this one. But for this one you need no PP Viewer because it is an uploaded file.

I am not sure what the compatibility pack is. I would investigate some more before deleting it. 173 MBs is peanuts.

I have a Windows 7 Professional 64bit system with Microsoft Office 2003 that is on a domain network. I have a user that cannot open .xlxs files despite having the Compatibility Pack for 2007 Office System installed on the PC. If I login, I can open all .xlxs files. The major difference that I notice is inside of Default Programs. Mine are set to open .xlxs files with the Compatibility Pack for 2007 Office System and the other user's is set to open with Microsoft Excel 2003. I have a pretty good feeling that if I change the Default Programs for his to open with Compatibility Pack for 2007 Office System, everything will work as it should.

Hello!

I use MS Office 2003. Hypothetically, if I install office compatibility pack and after installation save some *.doc with my word 2003, will that file be saved as a 2007 doc, thus it can't be open with some other word 2003 (without compatability pack installed)?

No, it can open a file that is from office 2007 and save them, but will save new files as 2003 formats.

Greetings,

For those of you who use a legacy version of Microsoft Office (97-2003) either because you are happy with the version you have, can't afford an upgrade to a modern version of MS Office (2007+) or find the new modern MS Office too confusing to use, you should install the free MS Compatibility Converter from MS Office. This allows you to open up files created with newer versions of MS Office.

What is excellent is that MS is still releasing updates to Office as long as you have the converter installed along with a legacy version of Office installed. I have Office 2003 with the compatibility converter, and last month got an update for Office 2010. (Running Windows 7.)

Before you install the MS Compatibility Converter:

Go to Microsoft Update to get all patches for your computer marked "Critical" or "Important"
You will than need to manually install the latest service packs for your version of legacy office through Office updates. Only Office 2007-2010 updates will come through automatically through Windows Update.

Okay, here's my situation:My mom has a genuine copy of Microsoft Office Student and Home 2007 (includes Word, PowerPoint, and Excel). When I previously had Vista on my laptop, I installed Office onto it (needed it for school). Partitioned off and used Windows 7 RC1, and loved it. Went to Windows 7 RTM (available from my college's MSDN AA) and got rid of the Vista. I then installed Office onto the Windows 7 os. Later, my mom got a new laptop and it came with a 60-day trial of Office. I'm pretty sure she activated the full version using her product key, but I'm not positive.Here's the problem:I'm going to get a netbook when I get back to school (needed for carrying around all day instead of my heavy laptop). I need to put Office on it as well. Also, I was going to do a clean install of Windows 7 on my current laptop to resolve some unimportant bugs and just have a generally cleaner system. However, looking through the EULA of Office revealed this:1. OVERVIEW. These license terms permit installation and use of a copy of the software on three devices, along with other rights, all as described below.2. INSTALLATION AND USE RIGHTS. Before you use the software under a license, you must assign that license to a device. That device is a "licensed device".??

Hello, and welcome to Bleeping Computer. Firstly you should definitely have Service Pack 3 installed for Windows XP. And speaking of service packs, you're not mistakenly using a Service Pack for MS Office as your source media are you? The statement regarding no products affected by this package sounds like an error message produced by a Service Pack that has not found installed software to update.

Welcome to TSG TMRick,
When posting a question provide as much information as possible, for sure the Operatating System and other actions you have taken to resolve.

That said, Does office work without the compatibility pack? I.E. you can create documents and open/read them after saving. Make sure you uninstall previous versions of Office and I would download the compatability pack again. Make sure you getting the one that matches your system. That system need to be up to date as well (updates and patches).

Whenever i try to open an .xlsx document it gives me an error stating that this file is not recognizable. i have tried uninstalling and re-installing the compatibility pack and get the same results. My administrator account goes thru the conversion process and everything can be read just fine, but the limited user account receives the error.

Thank you,
Mussels

A:Cannot open .xlsx file with compatibility pack

I was assisted on another forum with a temp. fix. If i change the .xlsx file to open with microsoft open xml converter the file opens just fine under all users. It doesnt explain to me why the file opens normally under admin and not other users, but it will allow you to view the excel file without errors.

Thanks,
Mussels

Running Vista Ultimate (32 bit) on HP Media Center Desktop Unit (8100y). Each time system is booted up and Outlook 2007 is accessed for the first time, Microsoft Office 2007 begins to reconfigure itself. Neither canceling of the configuation process nor allowing the process to complete seems to have any apparent effect on subsequent operations.

Performed repair function on the Office application without any discernible effect. Any help in resolving this issue would be truly appreciated!

Just bought a new laptop with Windows7 64bit installed-my first exposure to Windows7. I had Office 2007 installed on my old Dell 32 bit machine. I had also recently pruchased Office 2010 and installed that on my new machine.

Now, when I try to open those 32bit 2007 files with 64bt 2011, Iget an error message that "no picture file is available", or words to that effect. When I try to "open with", the only option displayed is "Microsoft Office" with an icon that looks like a picture file. When I try to browse to the proper office program(Excel, for example), there are none of teh Office suite programs displayed, only "Microsoft Office".

I can navigate seperately to the proper progran, Excel, etc., and drag the file into the application, and it opens, and all seems to work OK. I "save as" the proper application file, but it still will not open with double-click on the file name.

I have not seen this particular item in the forums and would appreciate very much some help in fixing this issue.

Thanks,

Grubby

Hello,

Reinstalled all Sony Pre-Loaded software,
which did NOT include any Prior version of MS Office. (Other than a Trial
Version of Office 2003 which I never used or installed. It's still in my
computer) Have no idea what version it is. Simply doesn't say because it's never been installed. It's sitting in the same start menu as all of the other MS Office 2007 Programs.
In another message forum I was told to delete it. However, Office 2007 Pro worked fine for 2 days with the Trial program still sitting in the Start folder.

I managed to install MS Office Professional 2007 and it's worked
for 2 days without a hitch. Today, I get the error message when I try to use
Outlook "Cannot start MS Office Outlook. Cannot initialize MS Office Shared
Utilities. Restart your computer Or reinstall MS Office Outlook." No Luck!!
Also, when I try to start up MS Word, the message says "Not enought memory
to load Word." (I have 2 Gig of Ram and a 320 Gig hard Drive???)

When I insert the Office Pro 2007 disk to Reinstall, the message is: "The
path you have chosen does not point at a qualifying upgradable product.
Click Try again or Cancel to quit setup."

I also don't have ANY previous versions of any Office Suite program to use.
I had Office 2003 Pro installed but that was deleted when I purchased Office 2007 Pro. I do have the disks for Office
2007 Pro.

For the record, I am an American living in Cali, Columbia. It... Read more

Good Day,

I've often used the Files and Transfer Wizard to move files in the Windows XP environment, including those for people moving from Office 2003 to 2007, however, I've just been asked to move a person from a computer that would result in them moving backwards from Office 2007 to Office 2003; is this possible? What concerns should be considered? Obviously if they have a number of documents saved in the 2007 it could be problematic, though could the compatibility pack offered by Microsoft offset that concern? Thoughts? Thanks.

Regards,
Jeff

We have an upgrade on our computer units here in the company, my problem is when users save their 2007 excel files an error pops up, Errors were detected while saving "File Name". Microsoft maybe able to save the file by removing or repairing some features. To make the repairs in new file, click Continue. To cancel saving the file, click Cancel.

By the way, the files were save on the file server and users access them through single roaming profile that we created with full access on their folders.
i am hoping i could find an answer.

thank you
