Running office on a win 8 laptop

  jerica 15 Nov 12

Hi, Looking for a lap top that will run office 2007, but all the new ones have win 8 installed (well most of them anyway) I haven't done anything with win 8 yet and I need to know if it will run office 2007 ok or if there will be a problem. Thanks for any help.

Well Microsoft have declared that anything that runs on Windows 7 will run on Windows 8. Personally I can't see there being a problem with MS Office 2007

jerica - just found a compatibility list for you for Windows 8 - scroll down to find ASV93 to see list.

Would have to have a think about that one - what would you be using it for?

I have Office 2007 installed on a Windows 8 partition and no problem. Not that I use it much as I do not use Windows 8 much.
