Windows 7: Running software

Running software

I've done a quick search but haven't found anything to clarify whether or not when I install Office 2007 do I need to manually install it with compatibility or just to let it run. I had to reinstall build 7000 due to some silly Image disk program, and can't remember if I have to install the adobe flash player manually and through compatibility or not?

Also I have adobe photoshop cs4 but does this only work on Windows 7 64 bit?

Office 2007 works as normal. I'm using it with Win 7 64bit now.
Not sure about CS4.

i have installed Office 2007 along with Photoshop and Illustrator CS4 and Acrobat 9 on 32 bit without touching compatibility mode. no problems whatsoever. i assume the whole CS4 suite will work similarly well.

I've been using lightroom pretty extensively on Windows 7 for the past week or so. It runs at about 90% compatibility I'd say. There are graphical glitches. Like if I'm at 1:1 on a picture and use the brush tool, anything i apply the brush to turns grey while I'm brushing which makes it very hard to see what I'm doing. Also, if you zoom in (ie. 1:1 or higher) and you scroll to the edge of the photo so that it shows the grey background of lightroom, the picture flips upside down. It is extremely weird, but I've still managed to get my work done. Anybody else have these issues?

You'll have no problem with Adobe flash player,and with Office 2007 neither,I 've install it few days ago and there is no problem at all with Office.
But you will have a problem with CS4 if you install it,so better solution is to install CS3 which works with absolutely no problem
