Why won't Office 07 Professional work in (be compatible) with Windows 7? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I really would like my Office 07 Professional to work with Windows 7.  It worked great when I had XP but now I've a new laptop with newest operating system and MS Word and other features of Office do not work.  Why?  Can this be fixed?

  • Hi,

    Would you tell us what features didn't work?

    As I know Office 2007 will work fine with Windows 7.

    Since you mentioned that some features are not available, this remind me that when using the trial version of Office, when the trial is expired, the Office will be launched with reduced features.  If it is true, we should convert the trial version to a fully licensed version of the product. We can do this by purchasing a Product Key online or from a retailer, and then by using that Product Key to activate the product. For more information on product activation, see Activate Microsoft Office programs.
