    You really would have troubles with Office 2007, its gone end of support, which usually means the activations wont work either.

    As Gary Mentioned earlier you can always Use FreeOffice https://www.freeoffice.com/en/ As it says its free, only need to supply a email to get the key.

    Its more compatible with MS Office than Libre and works more or less identical. About the only thing I found it wont do is Macros.

    The only thing you should do is change the default save formats. Otherwise no one else will be able to read anything you send out. ( most third party Offie suites do the same)

    So the product you once paid good money for is no longer usable just because MS can't be bothered activating it anymore?

    That's the best reason to ditch it and get LibreOffice...

    I always found Office 2007 all I needed. I still have it active except for Outlook which was discontinued and too old for Spark and Google. I'm afraid that 2007 has gone the way of XP and 7.

    Well I can install DOS now and it will work just the same as it always has. No activation rubbish. Will work forever as long as you have hardware or a VM that will run it.

    The cellphones these days might not last that long, but the old ones would probably still work! Like the Nokia 3310 for example.
    Non-system disk or disk error. Replace and strike any key when ready.

    Office Home 2007 was on Wifey's W7 desktop and is still there with W10.

    This lappy with W8.1 came with Office Home 2007 and is still there with W10.

    As it came out with licenses for 3 machines I stuck it on the old XP workhorse and still have one to go.

    Instead of Greta getting stuck into my generation to fix global warming, she should get stuck into those companies that keep changing products every 5 minutes.

    Leather/papyrus bound ledgers' were used from the year dot, changed to computer for me in 1973 and no more hand written accounting.

    lurking.

    You can download the software for nothing, it's only the key being sold.

    Its NOT legit, but should still work. And could get de-activated by Microsoft at any time .

    Just the difference in price should tell everyone that these type of key sellers arnt selling legit RETAIL keys

    I personally, am used to Microsoft office products. Every time I use an alternative product (even the free microsoft office included with Win10) I always end up noticing one of my instinctive keyboard shortcuts in excel behave differently. Too annoying, so I just stick with Office.
