  • You can look at the Windows 7 Compatibility @ http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/windows-7/en-us/Search.aspx?l=en-us&type=Software&s=Office%202003&os=32-bit&page=1 & http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/windows-7/en-us/Search.aspx?l=en-us&type=Software&s=Office%202003&page=1&os=64-bit  For Office 2003 Microsoft only specifies that the Student & Teacher version is not compatible.

    The is no default email program in Windows 7.  Microsoft eliminated it when Windows 7 was developed.

  • thank you. I have the home and small business 2003 and like it better than 2010 student teacher version because of email (outlook) and publisher. so it will work ok on the home premium?

    i have the 2010 on another computer and don't like that email program at all! and i need publisher.

  • Based on what Microsoft has posted in the Windows 7 Compatibility Center it should install and work.
