Got a new computer with Windows 8. Installed my MS Office 2007 no problem - but need the compatibility pack to open 2010 Docs (docx) and one doesn't seem to exist to work with Windows 8 OS - I downloaded the compatibility pack on the Microsoft site anyway and it didn't work, probably because it was for Windows 7 OS and earlier. Download it (save it) and change it so it runs in Compatibility Mode when you run it to install it. I may have originally mis-read - but you want to open Office 2010 documents with Office 2007?
I have Office 2007 and have purchased new computer operating Windows 8. Will Office 2007 work? I have discs with product key. Am I better off purchasing Office 2010 or installing Office 2007 and.
The DOCX format should be the same between Office 2007 and Office 2010. Nothing should be needed - other than a fully patched version of Office 2007 (SP1+SP2+SP3 and all post SP3 patches for Office 2007 are installed?).- Shenan Stanley MVP 2005-2011 & 2013-2015 Insider MVP 2016-.
