    I uninstalled Home and student 2007. Restarted my computer and reinstalled home and student 2007 and then up0dated Microsoft word. It now works perfectly. Time will tell how long this lasts. Thanks again everyone.

    • John's figures are correct.
    • I take it you mean "Amazon Marketplace" not "Amazon". If not, please let us have the link to the product page.
    • Activation is not proof of authenticity. If, just for example, these were part of a volume licence or an MSDN licence, their real nature might not become apparent for some time.

    Well they both work, state "Product Activated" and are getting updates. I believe these may be former OEM versions but at that price are hard to resist! IF I get problems later I'll have to deal with them I suppose, meanwhile all is well.

    hi there.

    If it's activated legit --i.e by a microsoft server and not one of those dodgy kms things no reason why it wouldn't work - and it's perfectly OK to use if you don't need features available in later versions.

    Another way is to install iit n a Virtual Machine --then you can run it "For the probable lifetime of the Universe" !!!

    The main differences in the newer versions are security features (particularly if running scripts from with Ms Office e.g EXCEL macros etc) and collaboration features - more useful for Offices when working in a project team / with others.

    For 99% of Home users Office 2007 is just fine - especially if you are a beginner in EXCEL - you won't be able to handle some OFFICE 2016 / 365 formats but there is a free reader for that.

    When it reaches (or if it has reached) End of Life support then you won't get updates - but if you don't need them what's the prob. !!!!!

    Cheers

    Agree about the activation (it was most certainly an MS Server in both cases) and about the security features. I've outlined my reasons for updating from 2007 in this thread - having done so I like Office 2016 so all is well at the moment

    I did not have any problems with Office 2007 and FCU. Not on my new desktop nor on my laptop. I don't want to buy a new version of Office. My 2007 works just fine.

    I doubly don't want to "buy" the 365 rent-an-app version and pay for it every year on subscription.

    I don't know anyone who uses 365. Even my deep-pockets company at work uses 2016. And my previous company used 2013 mostly (some people got 2016).

    If Microsoft forces me to rent their apps it'll be time to move to Libre Office, or some other competitor.
