  • Hi,

     

    Which methods did you install Windows 7? Clean install or upgrade install?

     

    Please use Windows 7 upgrade advisor first, it will It scans your PC for potential issues with your hardware, devices, and installed programs, and recommends what to do before you upgrade:

    Furthermore, please update the driver to the latest version. Some old software may not work in Windows 7 because it doesn’t compatible with Windows 7. You can check them in Windows 7 Compatibility Center

     

    Hope that helps.

     

    Regards,

    I don't know about your other software, but I can tell you that
    Microsoft Office 2007 (and also Office 2003) works just fine with
    Windows 7. No upgrade is necessary, so look elsewhere for a solution
    to your problem.
