Preferred Solution: office 2007 wont install over previous 2007 office beta version

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

No warning - nothing, but today up pops a nice little message that it has expired and I have to go to the ADD/REMOVE control panel and get rid of it!
It now has reduced funcionality (as in nothing works any more) but I have tricked it by setting PC's clock back in time by one year and everything is happy again.
So somewhere in the registry I guess is an entry that remembers the date so is it against the site rules to ask where one would look to find this offending entry and "to things with it? as in delete the brute!

I've tried the 2007 beta and whilst I think its pretty good I cannot justify buying it when it's released. So I plan to go back to Office 2003.I've mostly saved any documents/spreadsheets in 2003 format but where I've forgotton do i just download a viewer from Microsoft (but I seem to recall there is some download that allows for reverting back?)?The bit i'm concerened about is my Outlook pst files, will outlook 2003 be able to read the pst files created by outlook 2007?Thanks

I recently purchased a HP 530 laptop for our soccer club that came pre installed with Vista. During use of outlook, Excel etc it came up with a message asking for activation key & that we had 20 uses left to enter it (I presumed this was a trial version & activation code to be purchased). After 5-10 uses I decided to install Office 97 which I still had lying around from an old PC. This installed OK but the message was still appearing.

I then uninstalled Office 97 via add/remove programs & then did likewise for anything that mentioned office 2007 (I didn't do the actual uninstalling but am advised there were 4-6 office 2007 variants uninstalled). I then went to load office 97 back in but no go. It goes through the usual install process, enter key, select location to load (prog files/microsoft office) & then select type of install required (typical) & then the features (have selected all & just the basic office install).

Then it goes to the actual install process but just sits there with the bluey/green coloured screen with Microsoft Office 97 written at the top but goes no further.

I have checked add remove programs again & no mentions of office are listed.

I have followed the following fix I was advised about -

By default, Office is installed to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office. Using My Computer or Windows Explorer, go to that folder. Delete the E... Read more

Answer:Hp Laptop, Vista, Unable To Load Office 97 After Removing Office 2007 Trial Version.

Microsoft doesn't certify Office 97 to work with Vista: being said, lot's of people on the web have gotten it to work with varying degrees of success.Ensure that you install the application in compatibility mode - both as "Run as Windows 98" and "Run as Administrator"Don't install Service Pack 2 - it has problems. But, from what I've read, it'll let you gracefully exit the SP2 setup if you started it.

Answer:office 2010 wont install and 2007 has been removed

First go to the computer icon on desktop
Right click and then properties
This will show SP etc.
If you have anything other than SP2 install all the SPs
Then try to reinstall
If you still have problems report back.
Office 2010 will run with SP2. It needs a minimum of SP1

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.

I am currently using a new Sony Vaio laptop running Vista 64-bit.
When I got the computer, it had the trial version of Microsoft Office on it. When I first opened it, it asked me for my Product Key, which I typed in (I bought Office for a different computer, and only used it once). Everything went fine, until the loading bar on the configuration screen loaded to full, and then didn't do anything. It did the same thing each time I tried.
Now, my trial version has run out, and I am in the same dilemma. I tried uninstalling it, but only managed to uninstall some of it, leaving the main Office 2007 file on my computer. I am having the same exact problem every time I try to install it on my computer. If anyone knows how to fix this problem, or has any suggestions, I would appreciate it greatly.

Note: I have already tried copying the CD's contents to my desktop and running the installation from there. Same result.

Hi Folks,

The title of the thread says it all really.

I have legitimate copy of Microsoft Office 2007 Ultimate on my PC. I have just bought a copy of Office 2016 Professional Plus through the HUP.

I haven't installed Office 2016 yet - I use Office 2010 at work and find using Custom Animations in PowerPoint tricky compared to Office 2007.

I'd like to install Office 2016 alongside Office 2007 until I have tried Office 2016 to see if the Custom Animations in PP are easier than the 2010 version before switching completely.

My question is, can I install Office 2016 alongside Office 2007 without conflicts - switching between versions without a problem or will installing Office 2016 screw Office 2007 or worse FUBAR both Office installations or my PC.

Any help gratefully received.

Answer:Office 2007 Beta 2.0

I am concerned that you have used the Absolute beginners forum.You need to be aware that Office 2007 is a beta version ie still at the test stage and could well be full of problems.

This installation of office 12 beta took forever to install (33 minutes) i hope the final version is quicker. InfoPath and Publisher were left out of the new UI. I think OneNote was also but is not in my edition. Though it will take a little getting used to with the new screen hog layout. i think a 19" + will be needed for easy use as a 15" screen is a nightmair having to scroll left to right and up and down. I can't find where you change the page view to fit the width to the screen. But all goes well without any problems. Though the installation was a slight mess with leaving the Office 2003 Folder in the menu with all the dead icons inside. While Office 12 created a new folder etc. I do think it is a step forward in how office will operate in the future. I won't expect the final version (Office 2007) to be a complete success since it will be the first with the new UI since 1995 (That's the first version i used). Maybe the next version (2009?) may update to improve as really, there never is a final. Office 2003 was a rush release only giving the tool bars the 3D look and making the icons a fresh modern look which is still used in this better version. Overall it isn't bad not very user friendly at this stage as have to get used to the new way of the set up so i'll wait out and see how i find this.

Answer:Office 12 (2007) Beta

i have been using it and the first thing i missed was "The Office Assistant" i love "Links" the cat. But is unnavailable. Maybe it not included in early beta's but may be in the final version well the public release of office. It seems to be alright otherwise i do't get fancy with office but what i use is there in front of me without using those toolbars. Though the reduced clicking isn't really that reduced you still have to click 2-4 times to do an action which is very similar to early versions of office (2003 back). I'm not bagging the product it is easier to find things though.

Beta-1 Technical Release Build Coming Next Week

Preparing to Install 2007 Microsoft Office System Products, Beta1
TR build
We are busy making final preparations for the 2007 Microsoft
Office Beta 1 Technical Refresh (Beta1TR) release. We plan to
release this to you on BetaPlace next week and appreciate your
patience as we polish things off.

We have two goals for this release:

1. We want you to be able to validate that the fixes to
issues you've previously reported about 2007 Microsoft Office do
meet your needs.
2. We also want to provide a build of 2007 Microsoft Office
that functions on Windows Vista Feb CTP. With this build, we will
begin accepting bug and newsgroup submissions regarding the
2007 Microsoft Office Beta1TR build on Windows Vista Feb. CTP.

The Beta1TR build remains suitable for testing. However, the
quality bar has not been raised to the higher level that would be
expected for a Beta-2 release. Therefore, there may be some
areas of the product that function more effectively than before
and others areas that display new bugs or problems. Please
continue to log bugs in BetaPlace and use the newsgroups for
product support.

Answer:Office 2007 Beta 1TR

Just like Windows Vista, Office 2007 is now officially a 2007 product. Sure, Microsoft is still going to release to manufacturing (RTM) the Office 2007 bits in calendar 2006 (although a bit later than it expected). But only volume licensees will actually be able to get the Office 2007 bits in 2006; everyone else will have to wait until January 2007. Sounds like Microsoft is now planning a double-header product launch to start the new year. The news of Office 2007 new rollout schedule comes the same day that Microsoft appointed Office chief Steven Sinofsky to move to Windows to get the trains running on time.

I have downloaded and installed the MS Office 2007 beta, but have noticed that in Access I cannot scroll through the records in Form view (as I can in Access 2002). Am I missing something obvious?

Answer:Access - MS Office 2007 beta

Have had no response to my Access scrolling question - so here goes again!

Everybody has already told me that I shouldn't have downloaded the Office 2007 Beta software because I am not computer literate enough, so we don't have to start there. (Actually, many years ago I was a Systems Engineer for IBM. Trained in mainframes - MVS, VM, and VSE. Doesn't do me a bit of good with PC's.)

So I have Windows XP SP2 operating system and Office Pro. I downloaded the Office 2007 Beta. I like a lot of its features. But it has changed all of my Word documents to Wordpad. All the formatting is lost. It is NOT a critical issue. I would just like to know if it has happened to anyone else and if there is an easy way to convert them back to Word. Or if maybe I did something along the way to cause it. (I remember those calls from customers, "It was working fine, then all of a sudden it went boom! I didn't change ANYTHING!")


Answer:Office 2007 Beta and Word

So, off we go again ....heh, heh one of the files and do a save as, changing the format ...what happens?

I've had the Beta version of Office installed for sometime now. What I didn't realise is that today (1 Feb 2007) is the cut off day for it, and when arriving in the office this morning realised that it isn't working anymore, and says that I must uninstall.

So we have the Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007 dvd here, but when inserting that, it tells me I have to uninstall Beta first (can't understand why it doesn't just upgrage.. grrr..)

Now the problem - when trying to remove 2007 Beta through add/remove programs, it goes through a whole process, but then at the end comes up with the following error:

Seems simple enough right? Firstly, the file it tells you to read up on doesn't actually exist anywhere on my pc. Secondly, I seems to have all the appropriate permissions available.

After rebooting and this message coming up numerous times, I decided to try install 2003 and see if that would work. Well, it installed, but now there's major conflict errors, so I tried to uninstall 2003, and surprise surprise - I got the exact same error message:

SO we tried a system restore, but that didn't work. So last resort was to go in cowboy style and delete the regustry entries, and all the files and folders relating to office.

Didn't work either. It still shows as being there in Add/Remove Programs, and keeps showing the same uninstall errors when trying to uninstall.

Microsoft on Thursday will release a Technical Refresh build of Office 2007 Beta 2, which originally debuted to the public in late May. The update brings to the table a number of performance and reliability improvements in all Office applications.

By any measure, the beta program for Office 2007 has been an astounding success for Microsoft. The company has counted 3.5 million people downloading the pre-release code, and has gathered a vast amount of feedback by tapping into the general public.

Like Beta 2, the Technical Refresh will be available for public download at a cost of $1.50, a nominal fee Microsoft has added in order to recoup some of the distribution fees associated with the beta. Current Beta 2 customers, however, will receive the update free of charge.

As originally expected, Microsoft released less than an hour ago a long-awaited update to Microsoft Office 2007. The update seems to feature the expected updates to user interface, along with performance improvements, improved compatibility with Windows Vista RC1, and the usual load of bug fixes.

The file is only 494MB, which suggests the so-called Technical Release only includes the main Microsoft Office products, being Word, Powerpoint, Excel, Access, and Outlook. Previous Beta 2 testers can download it free and use their Beta 2 product key, sent in an e-mail back then.

I bought the MS Windows XP magazine, Issue 28, in the newsagents yesterday. (AUD$15).

The attached CD has:
Word 2007
Excel 2007
PowerPoint 2007
Outlook 2007
Access 2007
Infopath 2007
Publisher 2007
SharePoint Server 2007
and Groove 2007.

On the CD cover it says "Try MS Office Plus 2007 Beta 2 before it's released to the public". (In Australia, and NZ, anyhow).

One gotcha, that I have read about, is that there is a new format "XML", that is not recognised by any earlier version of Office. For compatibility, you have to get a "compatibilty pack", for Office 2000 onwards. Apparently that is not release in OZ yet. (USA and UK?). The alternative is to save your 2007 stuff in the old defaults of *.doc, *.xls, etc.

Any beta testers out there in the USA, UK, or OZ, with any advice if I try it out?
Should I partition my hard drive and load it onto a second partition, to keep it away from Office 2000? Guess I should backup all data and set a Restore point before I start.

Hi all, good evening:For those with the interest and time, you should sign up for this beta testing.I have got it and had a look, so far no problems, although I have a back-up HD and can revert if necessary.Word and Excel in particular look spectacular and is backwards compatable on the items I have tried.It is not a case of B baffles brains, just nice additional features which are great!Sign up with Microsoft and get the download and Key. However there has been a difficulty in activating the programs but may be because they are overloaded with other new users. You get 48 tries in any case at each program so.. worth the look1

Well I'm using it at work, not live but I tried to print out something and it just went nutty through word. I had a sales meeting with some people and went to print out a word doc that I had done with pictures and arrows and explanations and blammo the first page is fine and the next 3 look like it just wanted to start midway through the page and not work. Other than that, Office 2007 is pretty amazing actually and very easy to find things fast.

Other than that anyone else know where the forms field now is? You used to go Word>View>Toolbars>Forms>brings up forms display. This was great in that if you liked to design contracts for your company to fill in you could wright in everything then enter forms where the data that would change from each time would go and then hit "lock". Then whoever opened the doc next could only tab and edit the form fields, not the rest of the doc. Where is that on Word 2007? I couldn't imagine they would take that option away. Ahh well if I can't figure it out I'll have to go back to 2003 probably for not losing work at work.

There is light years of difference between Office 2003 and Office 2007 though, but I think for the most part if they get it right it will be mostly changes for the better. The prices are going up though........

Like an idiot I downloaded and installed these 2 Beta programs. From what I can see there are still several bugs to be worked out so I tried uninstalling both today using ad/remove programs.

After doing this, I no longer have my original MS office pro 2000; and all of my email is gone. The system restore doesn't help either.

I reinstalled both betas and got all of my files back so I tried to save them (backup) as pst files so I could transfer them to another computer running Office pro 2000. The problem is my original program des not recognize the new pst format nor can it open any new word or excel files created under the beta.

All I really want to do is to get back to where I was with my original office 2000 and get my email back.

I have been all over the web looking for a cure and Microsoft is no help since there is no support for the betas.

Can any one help me get back to where I was?

Answer:Problems Uninstalling MS Outlook and Office 2007 Beta - HELP!

In Outlook 2003, if you go to create a new PST file (via file->new->"outlook data file"0, you have an option of creating a legacy PST file which IS recognized by older Outlooks. I think the 2003 wording is "Outlook 97-2002 Data File". Once you create the file, you can Export all of you email into it by going to file->export and pointing the export towards the legacy file which you created.

No idea if this works the same in the Outlook 2007 beta or not, but hopefully this is at least a place for you to start!

Good luck!

Sorry but I don't understand, if you haver indeed purchased the full version, why do you not use it?

There is no ability to use any "keys" to reactivate a Beta version or to reload a new Beta version when the Beta programme has expired due to the program now being fully available retail.

Even if there was, no help would ever be given on circumventing trial software limitation of this forum.

But, since you state that you have now purchased ("brought") the full version, where is the problem?

She had a problem of some kind with Office and decided to remove and reinstall for some reason, my son couldn't find the original disks and the cousins boyfriend installed a copy of Office 2007 Enterprise on the computer thinking he was doing a good thing but it wasn't a legal copy, after a couple of weeks I got a MS message that it wasn't a legal copy, so I uninstalled it.

Decided against re-installing 2000 Pro because I was getting used to 2007 look and feel so bought Office 2007 Pro.

The copy I bought ebay was fully sealed, contained 2 x CD's but when I insert disk 1 autorun doesn't run so the install doesn't even start.

Any advice would be appreciated...thanks in advance.

Answer:Office 2007 Pro will not install

The copy I bought on ebay was fully sealed, contained 2 x CD's each with the Microsoft Hologram and the getting started book, it is not an academic or student version and has "licenced for noncommercial use up to 3 personal computers" printed on the back and has the product key and the Microsoft Certificate of Authenticity sticker.

When I insert disk1 autorun doesn't run so the install doesn't even start.

When I put the Office 2007 disk in the drive it says there is an infected Trojan file on the disk: Artemis!7F340D18399B.  It installs fine on my other computer with Windows XP.  Is there a way to remove that bad file? Or a way to get around it?Edit: Moved topic from Windows 8 to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

Answer:Trying to install Office 2007

Is that an original installation DVD or a copy? If it's a copy, don't use that disk -- find another one that doesn't have malware on it. You may also want to run a virus scan on the XP machine, just to be safe.

Is anyone familiar with customize installation of microsoft office 2007? If so, can you please help with installing certain parts to it. For instance, I don't want to install micosoft visio viewer, MS published but I am not sure how to take them out of the install. I would appreciate any help I can get with this.

I reloaded my laptop several month's ago. I like cleaning my machine when I get a bunch of programs I try out etc... I hadn't tried to reload the Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007 version because I hadn't needed it until now for a project I am working on.

I put it in the drive and it just makes that noise like it is spinning up. So I tried MS Office on another laptop and it came up fine to install, (was just checking the disk was alright), and I also put my Microsoft Flight Simulator in my CD drive and it came up fine to install. What could be the problem since I know my drive is working and the MS Office CD is working?

Also, when I tried clicking on the CD drive through the Computer window it ejects the disk and has a statement like a disk was never in the drive.

Is it possible I disabled that auto play thing? But if I had when I was messing around with Windows 7 Ultimate why would the MS Flight SImulator CD work?

Confused in laptop land! And thanks for your help!

Answer:MS Office 2007 won't install!

Have you tried to clean off the disk? Or your cd drive could be dirty and not recognize the disk.

Can we assume that other cd's read properly.

Answer:cannot re-install office pro plus 2007 ?

Judging by the inability of anyone to supply you with a successful fix on other forums you've posted on, and the length of time you've been fighting this problem, I suggest you bite the bullet and do a complete Windows re-install after backing up your data.

Program files or Program files (86) ?

I have had this rig going since about July first, but using mostly XP 32 because of virus concerns, and it took me this long to get my Linksys wireless card to work on Vista x64.

So i have only used Vista x64 occassionally, i like the increase in speed, and not sure about Office 2007 (i assemble lots of large databases in the Access world) install. . . anyone with any experience?

also, not sure about the virus / malware threats to V x64. . . any comments?



Answer:Where does Office 2007 install?

Yep it installs in "Program files(x86)"
Virus/Malware threats to Vista X64 ? they r pretty much the same as with previous versions.
Get a good AV scanner (Kaspersky,NOD32) and you are good to go.

Check this article out.
If it doesn't help, I think You have to check the integrity of the installation files - see if you can install the same distributive on the other PC for example.

Hi. I am not able to install office 2007 from the disc I purchased from microsoft and am not sure this is a disc problem.

When I load the disc into the drive, the green indicator light comes on, the drive weirs once, and then stops. If I search for the disc through computers> D drive> open, the file is blank. If I try to run it through run> d://, I get a message saying to insert a disc in the drive.

I can play a music CD on the drive, but it will not run by itself, I had to go into media player to run it. If I go into computers> D drive> open, I get a message saying "this file does not have a program associated with it. for performing this action create an association in the folder options control panel" (and I have no idea how to do this...).

the last time my d drive worked properly was yesterday when I uploaded a picture from my personal cd to a website.

I've tried running winsock fix as well and just scanned my computer yesterday for spyware and viruses and am clean.

I have windows XP os and have no idea what my d drive is.

would appreciate any help,

Answer:can't install office 2007

You shouldn't need to click "Run" anywhere. If the CD doesn't autorun, then just click on the setup.exe file.LIR

Ok I am running 64 bit Windows 7 and I put in the CD and try to install office and it just locks up and "windows is trying to find a fix" or whatever and nothing...

I get to enter my CD key in and it just crashes as soon as it starts the install.

The new Open Office is doing the same thing...
Also the Zune software...

any help would be great.
