  • I can't tell you why you're getting the message, but I had Office 2003 on my wife's Windows 7 x64 Home Premium (RTM) and it ran fine.  I then upgraded to Office 2007 because she needed it for work compatibility.

  • Thanks Rick Dee.  I haven't had too much of a problem so will keep trying to find out why the message keeps coming up. Thanks again  Ol Bill

  • Old Bill - What did you use to "check the compatibility of Office 2003"?

    Can you paste the exact text from the error message here please?  (If it's an error message, you should be able to select the window, then hit ctrl and C at the same time to copy the text of the message)

    Since this isn't a hardware issue, the moderators here will probably move this to the application compat forum.
