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.
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.)

I now have a new problem, before I managed to open 2007 files by opening Office 2010 and then from inside the application choosing to open a file. The problem I have though is if I just try to open an Office 2007 file then I can't open it, and I can't change the default program to open it.
How do you get Office 2010 to open all the Office 2007 files such as word, excel etc?

Recently installed Office 2010 (32 bit becuz it was recommended to do so my MS) and now when I send an Office 2007 file to that PC (both PCs are Win 7 64 it) it tries to open the file in Windows Media!!
What the heck am I doing wrong? I'm beginning to think I should not have purchased Office 2010 Pro and stayed with the Office 2007 on all my machines.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
That is weird.
Could you please describe step by step how you are sending the file to another PC.
Also, please provide more details on what type of the file that is. And if you create a similar file on recipient PC, will it be opened in Windows Media as well?
I've recently got a new machine and had copied my old PST file over. Whenever I go to open it I get "File access is denied. You do not have the permission required to access the file C:\Users\*username*\Documents\Outlook Files\*pst file name*"

Is there an add-in/converter tool I need to run in order to be able to open my old PST file?

Here is my issue. The Company we consult for has not transitioned all of the way to Office 2007. We have a number of machines that still have Office 2003. Compatibility Pack works on almost all issues.
Current issue is one of our users received a PowerPoint 2003 that has embedded PowerPoint 2007 files. When the user opens the PowerPoint 2007 file Office 2003 shuts down. He has to download the 2007 file to his desktop.
From what I can see this is because the file conversion process shuts down Office 2003 before attempting to open the PowerPoint 2007 file.
Another issue that may be complicating the error is we had to run a Fixit patch from Microsoft that was causing Excel, Word and PowerPoint to be scanned which caused long opening times. I don't remember the KB article for that one at the moment but will find it if I need to.
Thanks for any help in advance.

Hi, hope someone can help me..
We have installed Office 2013 (64bit) on 13workstations, but found out that clients require Office 2010 (32bit) for some programs that are linked.
We removed the Office 2013 (64bit) and installed Office 2010 (32bit).
Everything looks okay up until we try to do Office 2010 repair process.
We are getting the attached error screen..
I tried Wiindows Installer Cleanup utility but i couldnt find any traces of Office 2013.
Hi majorbaluga, welcome to Windows Seven Forums.
Removing Office completely can be difficult. Refer to the website below. This explains how to remove Office 2013. You may have to remove office 2010 as well & then reinstall office 2010.
Good Evening Everyone,
I have a few questions concerning the Installation of 2010 Office. I know that I have to uninstall Office 2007. I have no clue on how to save or where to save my documents from Office 2007. The documents consist of Word, Excel, Powerpoint and a few various folders. Should I from the Start Menue click on Documents select all and copy. Where should I place this copy? Can It be left on my hard drive? After I install Office 2010 can I then copy the "Document File" and place in Documents. Will all the files end up in the proper place for their programs, Word files go to Word, Excel goes to Excel so on and so forth. Thank you so much for all your help and cooperation. It is greatly appreciated. I hope I described my situation correctly. I look forward to hearing from you.
But you don't have to uninstall Office 2007 to upgrade to 2010. That's the general rule as you can generally upgrade from lower SKUs to higher SKUs (Small Business to Pro Plus). As far as saving your documents, you can really save them wherever you like on your hard drive or on any CD or flash drive if you wish to do so. As far as file types, after 2010 is installed, they should all register properly for their programs so that Word documents open in Word, Excel Documents in Excel, etc.
Though if you have all of you documents already saved within "Documents" or "My Documents" or some other folder you've set aside and you want to uninstall 2007 before upgrading to 2010, the documents themselves will be retained when you uninstall, you just won't be able to really do much with them until you install 2010.
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
Thanks in advance for any hel on this issue.

I do not have Office 2010 installed. Office 2007 is installed.
My security software keeps telling me I am at risk because my operating system is not up to date.
Any thoughts on what I should do?
If your computer is relatively new, it may have come with a trial install of Office 2010 - check the Start menu, and the Programs & Features listing.
You may also have installed Viewers for things like PowerPoint 2010, which still require updates.
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?
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.

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.

When I first got my computer (Windows 7 Home Premium SP1), it had a preinstalled trial version of Microsoft Office 2007. I removed it via the control panel (Programs and Features) and installed Office 2010. However, I still get Office 2007 updates via Windows Update. They even installed successfully.
There are no Office 2007 components listed under Programs and Features.
Why am I getting Office 2007 updates although I've got only Office 2010?...

How do I uninstall the 2007 Office suites if I cannot uninstall it by using the "Add or Remove Programs" feature?
It seems that there may be a problem in Office 2010. I just installed it to the standard MS default/recommended settings .........all looked good...used Word great..until I use Excel and each time I try to use excel it sets off an 'Office Configuration' screen which I can not stop..it take a few minutes and then loads OK. I tried to launch it from the installed prgrams icon but there is no files on 'start in' etc..I tied to create a shortcut to the desktop from the excel.exe file and get the same reconfigure issue..it seem that somehow I don't have either permissions or I have a corrupt install..all Office suite works eventually Anyone know how to fix it..please?
Have you ever had a previous version of Office on this copy of win7?
Do you have any component of a previous office suite installed still
I have seen this in the past with Viso that was due to remnents of an earlier trial remaining on disk and in the registry.
I also found that if I cancelled the configuration screen the Viso would load without problems without the need to wait for completion.
There are some rather involved solution stems on Microsoft website - cannot find them at the present but will try to look for them.
The problem was that I could never get the removal steps to actually cure the issue and I put up with the error until my next re-install of Win7, which was not to long in the case of that system
I have office 2010 ready to install on my computer, but many people I work with still use office 2007. Am I likely to get into compatibility issues when we exchange files (mostly Word and Excel, btw)?
You are very unlikely to have any issues exchanging those file types. I use both versions on different machines and have had no issues opening files I've created on either machine with the other machines.
i remember with windows xp and office, you could go to a different part of the microsoft windows update website in Internet Explorer, and it would prompt you with ActiveX to allow updates for Office, and after you did that then when you went to the normal windows (xp) update site there would be a whole other section of updates for microsoft office available. That was with office 2007 anyway.

You mean what's called Microsoft Update. If you go in to the settings in Windows Update, do you have this checked:
I have Office 2013 Pro Plus, but the click-to-run version which updates itself and is not part of Windows Update. But I don't think there's a click-to-run version for 2010 Pro Plus so that is probably not the issue here.

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:

Have downloaded Office 2007, but having difficulty dealing with different versions of docs. Converting them to 2007 is tedious. I'd like to scrap 2010, but don't want to lose anything.
I read previous thread about this. It said to be sure I had Service Pack 2 or 3 (both?) for Office 2007. I have Service Pack 1 for Windows 7, but cannot find any other service packs. How do I find them? Should I download a pack--which one and how?

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?
Wait for the DVD, or download the ISO then write it to DVD for installation. After installation, activate it with the licence key you purchased.

I'm running Windows 7 on my new computer, which came with a trial version of Office 2010. Rather than buy the full version when the trial expired, I installed the Office 2003 I had on my old -- now dead -- computer. I now find that I can't open the Word and Excel files I created with the 2010 version. Is there a 'cloud' site where I could send the 2010 files and have them returned to me as standard .xls and .doc files? Or is there a free converter available for download?

far more problems with corrupted files in Office2010 than in Office2003
Further, when I send documents via email between computers I find that some .docx files arrive as .dat files. Does not ever happen when files are simply move across the network
xls files created in xl2003 run much faster in their native environment than when translated into xl2010 and run in that environment (benchmarks on the two computers suggest that they are about = re performance)

On my Win7 PC I have open office and on my WinXP Laptop I have Office 2007. Both have one major problem: the spell-checker does not work regularly for English and does not work at all for other languages, e.g., French, Spanish, or German.
I did read other threads regarding this problem and I did go through the routine of Tools-option-writing aids; and marked "check spelling as you type." I also have my abc on the menu bar checked and the adjacent ABC is underlined with a red wavy line (which means the spell-checker is active).
The problem is that when I activate the Eng language in my task bar and type a wrong word, it will be marked with a wavy red line-- which means my spell checker works for English. Now while I still have English on my language bar, if I type a word in Spanish, the spell-checker doesn't work because the foreign word is not marked with red-wavy line. If I change the language in my task bar to Spanish and write a wrong Spanish word, again the spellchecker doesn't seem to work.
Anybody has any idea what seems to be the problem?
I greatly appreciate your help.

Having upgraded my desktop PC to Office 2010, I need to import three seperate letter template files for use in Word. These were lost during the upgrade but are on my laptop, which still runs Office 2003, as .dot type files and I also have them copied to a memory stick. However, I am at a loss as to how and where to save them into the new programme on my desktop PC. If it makes a difference, I should add that I do not use Libraries and have disabled them.
Can anyone advise please?
Problem solved - with a bit of advice from a friend! Unsurprisingly, it's very simple.
- Open the document in Word
- Click "Save As"
- Scroll to top of folder list and, under "Microsoft Word", click "Templates"
- Name the template and select "Word Template" in the "Save As Type" list
- Save it
I still don't know where they are saved to but I can now call them up and use them.

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.
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.

In the office I have several hundred PST files. When I go to File - Open - Outlook Data Files
I can only select one file. Thus it's taking forever just to get through the alphabet... I there a method to open all the data files? I cannot select all - I am forced to choose one by one ...thanks
You can only do it 1 at a time.
Why would you want 100's of PST files. You're scroll bar would go on for ever.
If you just want all the exsisting emails in one place. How about just inporting them?.
I have many files (Word, Excel, and others) that were created in Office XP Professional 2002. Will I experience any trouble in continuing to use these files in Office Home & Business 2010? That is, reading them and/or modifying them?
No you won't have any problems, all previous versions of documents are compatible in newer versions of office.
When I installed MS Office 2010 many months ago I assumed it would replace MS Office 2007 but it didn't. My question can I, and should I uninstall Office 2007. Somehow recently, when I open a Word document it attempts to open it with Word 2007. However I get a separate little window informing me that "The setup controller encountered an error during install." When I click OK the box goes away and the doc opens...but I can't make any changes to it and the only options in the pull down list is Open, Print and Close. All others are grayed out.
Anyone have any ideas?
You might want to uninstall BOTH of them, reboot your machine and the reinstall 2010.
I know that if you uninstall 2007 then you will have to do a repair on 2010.
BUT, before you do either of these, make sure you have your Office 2010 CD and keycode.
I've managed to get Office 2007 (PRO) to install and run perfectly on Linux (with Wine). Office 2010 seems absolutely to resist working with Linux. Office 2010 32 bit version gets a lot of the way but then fails with "Un-recoverable error". I nearly DIED when I loaded up my old Enterprise office 2007 and IT WORKED !!!.
I can't see any perceivable differences between Office 2007 and 2010 that would make any difference at all to even quite a sophisticated user.
My VBA macros in Excel all work -- I've been playing around with WPS (Kingsoft) office on Linux but OFFICE 2007 has things like OUTLOOK etc which are very useful and WPS office is still in "Alpha" stage.
I haven't had any glitches in Office 2007 so I can't actually see what's wrong if I stick with it -- in any case I doubt whether businesses even in 20 years time (will long be retired) will not be able to handle office 2007 documents.
(I still have the "Terminal access" Enterprise key of Office 2007 i.e multiple activations so it actually ACTIVATED OK too !!).
Office 2007 is not "that" different from 2010. They moved a few things around and tweaked the ribbon in 2010. You can use this tool to get the menu back like Office 2003. Free for home users. I was so impressed I bought five licences.

Office XP tries to Install when I start WORD/EXCEL in Office 2007.
I upgraded from Office XP Pro to Office 2007 Standard. Whenever I start WORD, EXCEL or POWERPOINT, Office XP is looking for PRORET.MSI to try to install. If I close it, Office 2007 apps open normally. This happens every time I open any of the three apps mentioned if a copy is not already open. BTW, this does not happen when I open OUTLOOK 2007.
Can anyone tell me how to stop this irritating occurrence? Thanks!!
Assuming you had Office XP installed at some point. You need to be sure it was uninstalled properly. Try OrkTools , it comes with an unistall wizard, if you can't uninstall from Programs and Features in Control Panel.
I'm not sure of the best way to describe this, so bear with me. My husband has a computer that he uses at a non-profit office (so no tech support available). It is Windows 7, with (he believes) Office 2007 products. He often needs to open multiple files at once, such as 2 or 3 Excel (for instance) documents. Although they open in their own window, the Task Bar on the desktop will only show one icon for Excel, regardless of the number of Excel documents open, rather than displaying each open file so he can either select by filename or scroll over the icon to quickly determine which file is which.
Hope I've explained this OK. Any advice will be helpful.
Thanks in advance.
It doesn't have anything to do with the Word program, it's how Windows 7 behaves, to change this setting do the following:
right click on the task bar > click "properties" > on the "task bar" tab > "taskbar buttons" > click the dropdown menu > it is likely set to "always combine, hide labels", so select "combine when taskbar is full" or "never combine" > click "Apply" then click "OK"
Each open document should now show on the taskbar.
It is possible to open a Word 2003/Excel 2003 document in Word 2007/Excel 2007. But some time we have to work with Word 2007/Excel 2007 files at a PC where Office 2003 is installed. Can it be possible?
