Windows 7: Running old Excel macros in Windows 7

Running old Excel macros in Windows 7

I have quite a few macros written in older versions of excel that now won't run on our Windows 7 machines. Getting the error that the library is not found. I assume this is an issue with the new "Library" function in Windows 7. Does anyone know what to do to run these? From what I have found, there is not a way to turn off the Library function.

It is more than likely referring to a missing .dll file...not the Libraries (folder groups) in Windows 7. What version of Excel where they created in...and what's installed on the new system?

The macros were written in Excel 97 which is also installed on this particular machine. They do, however, also work in Excel 2007 which I have running on a virtual XP machine. The '97 Macros worked fine in XP. Thanks for any ideas you can give me.
