office 2007 on 2 accounts

In the process of changing over to a new Win7 computer. Have my own and my wife's accounts on the new computer, and have MS Office 2007 installed on my account. However, it does not appear on my wife's account (it did on the old computer running Win-XP). Do I have to install it separately on her account, or how can it be done by sharing programs?

Click Start - All Programs - Microsoft Office - Right Click - Share With - Specific People - Everyone - Permission Level - set to Read/Write - click SHARE.

When you install a new program you usually get the option to install for "Current User" or "All Users" but this is sometimes "overlooked. This is probably what happened to you.

Many thanks for that. Should solve the query.
