Is there a Word 2007 compatability pack for Vista

  Halmer 10:15 03 Oct 2008

I have Microsoft Office 2003 and someone has sent me a .docx file from Office 2007.

My laptop asks me if I want to download a compatabilty pack (I remember doing this on my XP PC) but when I run it it tells me that the installation has failed so I can't view it. My Vista laptop keeps taking me to click here but this page only makes reference to XP.

From the page you linked to:

System Requirements
Supported Operating Systems: Windows 2000 Service Pack 4; Windows Server 2003; Windows Vista; Windows XP Service Pack 1; Windows XP Service Pack 2

Note that windows Vista is listed there.

It also says:
please install all High-Priority updates from Microsoft Update before downloading the Compatibility Pack.

Have you done this?

Have you tried saving the download to your hard drive and running it from there or did you just run it from the download page?

Found it that it was because I was not logged on as Admin. Just wish it had told me that rather than me relying on a hunch.
