    Default Does Office 2007 work on windows 8?

    Hello,

    I have bought a new laptop with windows 8 on it. I just installed office 2007, but the problem is I can not open .docx document. I can open this document on another pc with Windows 7. So I am wondering if Office 2007 can work on Windows 8?
    Can anyone let me know "does office 2007 work on Windows 8?"

    Thanks.

    Cool Re: Does Office 2007 work on windows 8?

    Well, it IS an OS that predates Win-8 by several years, so you might find that running it as an Admin will help you out. Or run it with Windows XP Compatibility.

    Just a thought, since I'm not on Win-8 right now.

    Good Luck!

    Office 2007 runs on Windows 8, though I cannot promise that all features (as your issue is) works at 100% If you need those extra features, now's the time to hunt for deals on Office 2010, it's what I run on Windows 8 & 7.

    Being that Office 365 & 2013 has been released, now's a time to be finding bargains on what's now the older, but still 100% compatible with Windows 8, Office 2010.

    Just did some researching, you may need this compatibility pack. I do recall needing this once on Office 2010 while on Windows 7. Get them here.

    Windows 8 OS and using Microsoft Office 2003 and cannot open .docx - Microsoft Community

    Hope this helps!

    Best of Luck,
