Calling Microsoft tech support (about Office 2007 and Vista)

Geoff Coupe is having trouble getting Office 2007 loaded on top of Windows Vista. I'll try to get someone over here to help fix this stuff. It is beta, so expect some turbulence! But, yeah, I hate it when Microsoft groups don't use our latest stuff.

Anyone else having troubles?

  5. I installed my new Microsoft Office 2007 on my (XP windows)
    Notebook it was working well but very slow it was OK.

    I don’t. know what happened that the on screen comes a rectangular Box which, four L shape at corrners and connected with single lines. I want to eliminate this box to have the plain screen as usual.
    How I could eliminate it I tried different commands but didn’t. work.

    Please, response ASAP Thanks, Hrand

  7. I bought Office 2007 upgrade. I have two previous Office versions… and I can’t upgrade. Microsoft (India) support’s response? Take the software back to where you bought it and ask for a refund. HA! BIG SIGN AT THE CASH REGISTER AT OFFICE MAX: NO REFUNDS ON SOFTWARE! Great… I’m out a chunk of change and Bill Gates is richer.

  9. I had vista and it works for the first 3 weeks then it’s acting up making funny things happened to the point you cannot keep it on your system, Same thing with Microsoft Office outlook 2007 beta It works great until after 3 weeks when you got 200 messages or so
    they all disappear blanked out I am certain this is a beta feature so that you would not keep the software indefinitely. I guess one should know better than to test beta you work for free and you get nothing back.
    The idea is to make you feel that you need this extra product so you go out and purchase it when it’s on the shelf.

    Calling MS oh lord I don’t even bother………….

  11. Hi – all of a sudden my Office XP small business Outlook program constantly hangs after one or two operations. Tried everything I know how. Even bought a registry fixer, but that’s not it. Deleted a bunch of items, no help. Am totally confused, and I need that program to go on living!

  13. COMCAST Customers – I was having an issue with activating MS Project Pro 2007 Beta 2 in addtition to a frustrating problem with Outlook 2007 Beta 2 not being able to find the internet when I attempt to follow a link (images in ‘safe’ emails also were not loading). I tracked the issue back to the Comcast Installation CD I had to install to initially get my connection going. Removeing that in the Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs solved all 3 issues.

  15. In my naivity I thought I could install Beta 2 in parallel with XP Office. I rapidly exhausted my free tries and never could activite. Tried to use the XP versions and discovered they were gone. I uninstalled Beta 2 and reinstalled XP version. Lost all of my addresses and mail in Outlook. Later, Outlook stopped working. Tried to install XP Outlook again. Got 1402 error. Got the same error when I tried to install Publisher (on a separate disk). Am spending $35 in hopes Microsoft can get Publisher working again. I liked the Beta 2 features but will never again have anything to do with a Beta. Anybody have suggestions on the 1402 error?

  17. I downloaded office 2007 on XP prof.at work [through a server] and Outlook works fine. I downloaded it at home – also on XP prof. and got no body in my e-mails. The header is there and sometimes an odd letter or character in the body – but nothing else. I love the rest of the office package and am loathe to give it up but I am having to access e-mails through my web server so will have to revert at least Outlook back to 2003.
