Office 2007 upgrade on windows 7?

May 18, 2010

Well allot of what I do is tech support for my clients, and just today I ran in to a problem that google couldn’t solve!

So I thought that I’d post the solution to the problem so it might be a benefit to you!

Have:

Some new dell windows 7 PCs

Office XP

and a upgrade to Office 2007

Need:

Office 2007 on windows 7

Problem:

Office XP won’t install on windows 7.

The upgrade requires a previous version to work.

So here’s the most important part, the solution!

I called Microsoft up, the Indian guy that answered the phone was pretty helpful compared to most big companies.

He said that he could help me if I had a Microsoft copy(which I did) He then proceeded in emailing me a link to download the whole thing! YEA!!!!

For you convenience I’ve posted it here http://msft-dnl.digitalrivercontent.net/msoffice/pub/X12-30283/X12-30283.exe

Hope that this helps some of you!

Let me know if you have any issues!

Please note that you must own a valid copy of Microsoft 2007 upgrade before this will work.
