Install office XP and then download the ofice compatibility update from microsoft then it will work if you get sent documents made with 2007, that is what I have on my vista laptop.

“What about all the security updates for office 2007 that keep coming up”

The reason that Office 2007 updates keep coming up is that not all the registry setting was


Forget Microsoft Add/Remove program as it leave files in the registry and on the hard

drive which will causes problem uninstalling and reinstalling programs use this program

Revo Uninstaller

click here

If the windows request message to reboot appear DO NOT click the NO button Revo will

now search the registry and hard drive for any files that is not required, just click the

Select All button and the Delete button if any left over files are found once the “Finish”

button appear you can than reboot the computer

“Can I install office XP on a vista laptop”

Yes all Microsoft Office programs can be install on Vista & Windows 7 when released

Software4Students are legit. I bought Office 2007 earlier this year. Took about a week to come through. All updates and validations perfectly ok.
