We have it on 2 of the 3 computers we have and it doesn't seem to be compatible with Word as it is said to be. When my daughter attaches her assignments to her professor it doesn't work.

It is on a refurbished Dell ( XP PRO Interl® Celeron® CPU: 2.40 GHZ, 2.39Ghz, RAM: 504 MB).

What might I try to get these programs to sync?

Thanks so much!

Answer:compatibility of "open office" suite and Microsoft Office Suite?

Hello alpad,

When she saves the document to send to the professor, which format is she saving it in? If she saves it as the default .odt, Word won't be able to open it. In the small window by "Save as Type" she needs to click the arrow to cause the drop down menu to come up, then select the proper Word version to save it as. My version of Open Office has the following MS Word options:

MS Word 97/2000/XP (.doc)
MS Word 95 (.doc)
MS Word 6.0 (.doc)

There is also an XML version. The latest version of Open Office, version 3, is also compatible with MS Word 2007; however, I don't know how that appears in the drop down menu as I don't yet have that version of Open Office.

Once she has chosen the proper Word format, then she needs to save the document. This is the version she should submit to the professor.

Does anyone have any experience with Kingsoft's office suite (the free one)?

I was downloading Foxit's pdf reader the other day and noticed they appeared to be offering a Foxit office suite on their site. Digging a little deeper, I noticed it was basically the Foxit pdf reader bundled with a Kingsoft developed office suite. I went over to Kingsoft's site for a more direct look and liked that the suite weighed in at less than 40mb (compared to the 200 or so for the more feature rich Libre Office I usually use). I figured it must be a pretty lean and nimble package and that has a certain appeal to me. That said, I'll admit that I raised an eyebrow when I saw that Kingsoft was based way out in Hong Kong, China.

Just curious as to whether anyone has used any Kingsoft software and could weigh in with some quick opinions.

Answer:Anyone used Kingsoft's office suite (free)?

I've used it. There is a button on the main screen that ask you to switch to the paid version but otherwise it's fully featured and very similar to Word 2003.

Answer:Microsoft Office Suite - Another Free Alternative

Good UI, but too much quirks.

First: It's only available in English and Chinese, and changes regional settings while launching (that creates problems for other apps).

Compatibility with Microsoft Office is better than that of LibreOffice / OpenOffice, but still far away from being considered good: I couldn't open several docx files, had problems opening password-protected, or larger documents, many that could be opened had screwed up formatting.

As Word (doc, docx), Excel (xls, xlsx), and PowerPoint (ppt, pptx) represent the global standard office formats, a good alternative should be able to interoperate properly. Kingsoft isn't, LibreOffice is even less, OpenOffice isn't at all.

I see only one alternative office suite which is seamlessly compatible, and that's SoftMaker Office by German developer SoftMaker. This has fantastic import and export filters compared to all others, is very feature-packed, and makes Microsoft Office dispensable. They also offer a lite version of a full-fledged office suite for free, try it out:

It has the same brilliant import and export filters like SoftMaker Office; in contrast to Kingsoft Office, you can change UI language, and can download dictionaries in nearly all languages of this planet, it doesn't change regional settings when launching, it's usable portably from flash drive. Try it out.

Hi there
If you are looking for a good alternative to MS office I suggest you try KINGSOFT (or WPS now) Office -- even the EXCEL seems to be reasonably compatible with Ms OFFICE. I haven't tried comparison with EXCEL 2013 but it doesn't have problems with some of my quite complex OFFICE 2007 spreadsheets and the OFFICE 2010 stuff I've tested works fine too.

There's even Linux versions (.deb, .rpm, .tgz) so you can install using the package manager of your choice. It's in ALPHA on Linux but for ALPHA software it seems pretty good.

Question: Best Office suite

Hi all!! I am a newbie in this forum.. My dad has recently shifted to his new office and he needs a new office suite..As it is he's gonna buy so I am thinking of upgrading my personal pc as well. I suggested him the Microsoft Office 2007 Professional. What do you say guys? Shall we go for it? Also the price I found here was ?291 and pc world is having the same for ?350 I want to know why is there such a huge difference between the prices when the product is da same? I am really confused. Dont wanna suggest something wrong to my dad and get my pocket money screwed up..Help Guys!! Thanks in advance..

Answer:Best Office suite

I'm not familiar with but it seems to be legitimate.  Yes, the price difference between the two sites is substantial, but I don't think the prices on are any indication of pirated/illegal software.  If you come across MS Office selling for, say, a third or less than the normal retail price, that's when you really need to be suspicious.  So, I would buy from  If either you or your father already have an older version of MS Office, an upgrade version of Office 2007, rather than a full version, will save money.  And, you might also review the differences between versions of MS Office 2007.  For example, if you have no need for Access, then the Standard edition may be quite adequate for you.  And, then, there's an entirely free alternative:

We are wanting to up-grade our current Office suite Office 2003 to either Office 2010 or Office 2013.  Our PC's are running Windows 7
I would just like to know what peoples opinions and advice is on this?

Answer:Up-grade from Office 2003 to Office 2010 or Office 2013

 I can't speak to Office 2013, but I've done numerous upgrades to Office through 2010.  When you install the new version, you have the option to keep the old version or just replace it.  Starting with Office 2007 the familiar menu bar has been replaced with the ribbons which take a lot of getting used to for folks used to older versions.  There's a little program called UbitMenu that will add most of the menu bar functions back in the 2007 and 2010 versions that a lot of folks find helpful.  If you do opt to have two different versions installed at the same time, what happens is that when you switch from one to the other, it goes through a juggling act that takes a minute or so.  It's a bit of a pain, but if you need it, it could be a convenience.
Good luck.

Saw this on ebay. Claims that 'Sun Office Suite Professional is a Microsoft Office compatibleoffice suite software package for Windows thatincludes word, excel, powerpoint, and frontpage compatible programs that open, edit, and saveMicrosoft Office and HTML documents'. All for £7.95?? Anyone tried this? (No Im not a seller, just interested in the excel and powerpoint)

Answer:Sun Office Suite Professional

It is pretty close to MSO; PCA did an evaluation of it using members of this forum and people had mixed reactions to it. Personally I found it good, but I don't go in for much of the advanced features. It will depend on the version though; version 6 is good, version 5.2 less so.

Answer:Open Office Suite

It is safe to use. If you were working with word 2000, then yes, open libre (office) will work fine. Though, if you use macros or anything special, you'll have to re-work them.

 I recently installed an update.  Shortly afterward I encountered a .dll error when attempting to open Microsoft Excel.  I attempted to repair the program twice, with no success.  Same with Word.  I uninstalled MS Office with the intent of reinstalling.  However, when I attempted to do that, I was asked for my MS account info, along with a product key.  My laptop came with MS Office pre-installed, so I do not have a product key. One hour of chat with Microsoft technical support resulted in the customer service representative suggesting I contact the manufacturer, as the software was pre-installed. I am using a wireless connection on my home network.  This laptop is my personal equipment. Anyone else have this problem?

Here is where I'm at, when I click on MS Word, nothing opens. In Task Manager, winword.exe runs for about 2-3 seconds then disappears. "winword /a" (safe mode?) does the same thing. Excel, same thing. No error messages, nothing in Event Viewer!

Now here's what lead up to it, the user installed Office 2007 Ultimate, via a download from school website, and for some reason it didn't work. After a reinstall or two, it was completely fouled up. The program was essentially missing, yet was listed in Add/Remove. When you click Remove, an hourglass appears then just goes back to Add/Remove after about 10 seconds. I installed MS Windows Installer 4.5, rebooted, and was able to then install Office 2007, then Uninstall, delete office12 user folder, reinstall, no change.

Ran Office self diagnostic tool, says everything is Fine.

Adobe Reader 9.1 had recently been installed, and that may be the culprit, because of the way that is acting. In Add/Remove it gives an error message, can't remove, and when you download the installer, it gives an error, can't install.

3 months later thru a promotion at work I was offered MS Office Suite Professional 2010 which I took advantage of to get the Outlook.

Can anyone help me go thru the steps?

Answer:MS Office suite 2010

Welcome to WSF.

Office 2010 64-bit will uninstall quite happily via Control Panel>Uninstall Programs, but you might want to use a third-party uninstaller such as Revo, which will scan the registry for remnants and leftover files.

Make sure you reboot after you've uninstalled the 64-bit version, and then install your 32-bit version.

If you have a license for Outlook or Office 2007 you can install just Outlook 2007 alongside the Office 2010 installation unless it is an OEM copy that came with the computer. If it is OEM you can only have it installed on the computer it came with.

After looking through several posts, I am wondering which is the best application to replace MS Office. I have seen a few suggestions, still I see nothing that will completely replace MS Office. I use office Outlook, word, XL, and occasionally presentation and PPS.
Here are the three suggested, none of which can replace MS Office.
Open Office (Apache)
Libre Open Office
WPS Office Free
Is there a better application out there that is safe? I had problems with peripherals working after installing Libre Open Office and uninstalled it, using System Restore.
Or along with any of these recommendations is there an  additional application that would provide the other MS Office functions?
All recommendations are considered and thanks for your help.

Answer:Office Suite Best Choice

WPS Office Free would be my choice. I have found that files that choke on Libre or Open Office open fine in WPS. WPS seems to have the best compatibility with Microsoft Office.

I have home office 2007 for vista, when i try to open the word or any of the other office program it pops up with box windows installer. After this runs it pops up with "This update package could not be opened." I tried putting the disc back in to do a repair install but the disc is not reading. I am at a lost about what to do so any advice would be good.

Answer:Office suite no longer working

When you say the disk is not reading, do you mean nothing at all happens AND that you can't even see the disk in Windows Explorer to select the repair program if it isn't starting automatically or that it gives you an error message (and if so, what exactly word-for-word)? And if you do try find the repair program in Windows Explorer, what happens when you double-click the icon? Absolutely nothing or does the CD drive at least spin up and then do nothing or do you get some type of error message (again, what word-for-word)?

I'm assuming this is a retail version of the product and not a trial version that has simply expired (if so, you just need to purchase the retail product and install it to replace the trial). Has it ever worked on the system or have you just now installed it for the first time? Was there a prior version of Office installed before you installed this one and if so was this an upgrade or a clean new installation (and if a clean new installation, was the prior version COMPLETELY removed before you installed the new one)?

I have loaded a Excel Viewer program, but can only open the file as a read only. Is there a way to fix the error of file format so I can work with these files. The files were created on my older computer running XP... of which at the office I still run XP. I would need to "edit" a given file ( work with ) on both systems as the XP will not be upgraded in the near future.George

Hi all,
I'm running an old Samsung NP-NC10 netbook with Windows XP. It has a 16GB SSD (14.8 GB usable) and 2GB of RAM. It's just for tinkering and occasionally for writing papers or presentations while deployed. I'm looking for one of the free office suites for offline work, but need to know what has the smallest footprint. Windows and the AV/Firewall software only take about 5GB, so I have a little over 9GB left. While LibreOffice fits, it fills most of the drive and I really only need Word/Excel/Powerpoint equivalents. Everything else is fluff I likely won't use. Thank you in advance for your time and your help.

Answer:Small footprint office suite

You have a few options
Use Google Docs  
Use Office 365 free  Edit: I missed the offline part, sorry.
Install the portable version of LibreOffice to a USB flash drive and run it form there. Double click the exe file and install it to your flash drive. You can also install the Portable Apps Launcher then install Libre Office. This will allow you to easily launch other portable apps from the main interface.

I installed Microsoft Office Suite on computer with Window Vista, went through all the setup process including activating the Suite on the Internet which was successful. When I opened Microsoft Word the End User License Agreement window appeared with the statement that if I did not accept the terms of the agreement, the program would not be functional. I clicked the button for "Accept" and the window disappeared however, when I re-opened Word (or Excel) the agreement popped up again. I again clicked "Accept" and the same thing occurred. Is this just a faulty install or am I missing something obvious?

hi to all,
i wish to know what is missing from the ashampoo office 2016 compared to microsoft office suite and from those free office suites as well
the price of the ashampoo office is really very cheap

Answer:ashampoo office suite 2016

You ask the similar question like to ask what the difference between 7z and WinZip. They just can not be compared.
If you ask if either Ashampoo Office 2016 or Softmaker Office 2016 would be another thing. 
For example, I prefer WPS instead others, was previously known as Kingsoft Office.
It's just your choice, which to prefer.

Problem: In the unread part there are thousands of Microsoft mail in there, I've deleted them but there's always thousands more, I'm talking about a ridiculous amount of like 200,000 of them, its just ridiculous, I'm not subscribed to any of that Microsoft mail that you can subscribe too.

Any ideas on stopping this problem? I believe this may be the problem of my mac slow down.

"Not enough memory" when I close that window then appears again that microsoft has encountered a problem.
