Office 2007 64bit Compatibility Question

Q: Office 2007 64bit Compatibility Question

I'm considering upgrading my processor to 64 bit when Windows 7 comes out and would like to know if my current 32 bit version of Office 2007 can be upgraded without cost to 64bit. Cost is a big factor in my considering an upgrade.

Thanks for any advice.

Preferred Solution: Office 2007 64bit Compatibility Question

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: Office 2007 64bit Compatibility Question

Office 2007 is a 32-bit Suite. Having said that, it runs fine on 64-bit OS - so you will not incur any additional cost for software.

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.

A:Solved: Cannot open Office 2007 documents even with Office 2007 compatibility pack in

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.

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:

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.

A bit of a run down about the setup of this station...

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.

So when I go to change his Default Programs, it opens the Windows Explorer screen and asks me what program I want to open .xlxs files with and I can't find Compatibility Pack for 2007 Office System anywhere. Where does this install to so that I can reference it?

As a part of MS Office Professional 2003, I presently have MS Publisher 2003 on my PC. I've been searching for some clip art graphics on the MS Office online site and found something I would like to download that uses Publisher. The only problem is that it requires MS Publisher 2007 and won't download with 2003 (I've tried.) The site referred me to download a trial version of MS Publisher 2007 and I'm considering it. However, I am hesitant. Won't downloading the 2007 version when I already have 2003 installed create problems? Is it possible to download just Publisher with the free trial or will I be required to download all the MS Office programs as a bundle?

Thanks in advance for any advice anyone might have!

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

I had windows '98 and installed office 2000 professional with zero problems. Then I upgraded to windows 2000 professional. First off I had to reinstall a ton of programs because even though they showed up in explorer, windows thought they weren't there (virus scan, for example). That's not a prob, they installed just fine.

When I go into explorer, it tries to install something from office.

I pop the cd in to let it fix itself and it doesn't work, so I just keep hitting cancel.

It will do this from 1-5 times in explorer and in the search script.

Then I decided to try repair from add/remove programs. That didn't work. Acted like the disk wasn't in.

So I went into explorer. When I try to access the disk, it simply shows one empty folder: %temp%. Yet it says the disk contains 649 megs on the cd.

I have always accessed it with a dvd-rom, so I know I didn't accidentally erase it or anything (it's a cd-r anyway). And it does the same thing with disk 2.

Could this have anything to do with converting to NTFS or whatever it's called formatting? And if so, does this mean I can't repair/reinstall office without reformatting my hard drive again?

I've been enjoying windows 2k except for this one sticking point, any insight would be fantastic.

A:Stupid windows 2k/office 2k compatibility question

No, it has nothing to do with compatibility. It also has nothing to do with NTFS. Try using the original CDs instead your back up copy.

Hi all,

I have a question regarding Microsoft Word (Office) 2007. Something seems to have changed, but I cannot quite figure out what has happened.

When I first open Word, and then open a new or existing Word document, and when I then click the thesaurus button, it takes every bit of 15 full seconds for the thesaurus to open. After that it opens instantly, each and every time, until I exit Word and restart. Then it takes 15 seconds again.

Any thoughts? It seems as though the path to the thesaurus may have changed, but I cannot figure it out.

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".?? A hardware partition or blade is considered to be a separate device.I was hoping "3 PC license" meant 3 sets of hardware (i.e. three separate computers).

Always a good idea to backup the registry just in case, but seems very straight forward. There is a download for using the default Outlook profile name as well, so you don't have to edit manually.

Welcome to the forum. If you really really want those numbers to be reset then you can go to the table in design view. From here hit "F12" for save as and give it another name. After that do an append query that will copy the records from the old table to the new one. I do this a fair amount when making dummy records while initially testing the systems.

Hi all.

I have recently moved my email client from Windows Live Mail to Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 email client.

The transition was smooth and all my folders moved across smoothly. Well almost, and there lays my question.

Whenever I now open an incoming email, no problems there.

However whenever I open an email that came across from WLM in a folder, Outlook displays an information box prior to that email opening.

This info box is entitled "Microsoft Office Outlook", and the message that it contains is as follows:

"The custom form cannot be opened. Outlook will use an Outlook form instead. The object could not be found" (and an OK button).

I click OK button and the email now opens up for me to read. I can close the email and if I try opening it up again, I get the same info box again.

While this does not present any great problem, it is very annoying having this thing pop up every time I try to open the email, especially when I am looking for a specific email.

Can anyone please shed some light on this problem and how I may be able to eliminate this critter?

It seems that legally I would be totally in the clear (I am the primary user; It is legit to use the license for my PC & laptop simultaneously; Even if it was not legit to use it for both computers, I could reassign the license).

I guess the question is: When I install the Office 2007 upgrade version on my new laptop, will the software know that I am making an upgrade--and how? Will it ask me to put the Office XP CDs into the CD drive? Do I need to install Office XP on my laptop first? (If so, isn't that impossible because of compatibility?)

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I scoured the internet but have found no helpful i... Read more
