Mcirosoft Office ?

What is the oldest version of Microsoft Office that will work with Windows 7 Premium? I have Office XP and it works great on the RC version but I don't know if it will work on a lesser version when it's released. Anyone know yet?

Cannot say for sure but if it works on the RC then it should work without issue on the RTM.

I cannnot think of any functionality required for office that would be in the RC, (Ultimate), and not in the RTM, (Home Premium).

The only possible issues would be the FAX functionality, if they follow the route with Vista and omit FAX from the Home versions, and of course any Bitlocker or Multi language features you have got used to using (language is of course settable separately within office)

With your computer specifications you could install XP mode and run office from there. I have Office XP in XP mode and it runs fine.

I am running Office 2000 on one Windows 7 RC system. (Not the full install, just Word and Excel.)

Xp Mode is an optional add-on to windows 7 that allows you to run a copy of XP inside of windows 7 in a Virtual Machine.

As you are talking about the Home editions this will not be an option for yourself as it is only available for Professional, Ultimate, and Enterprise users

There is a way to move Windows Mail from a Vista system into Windows 7. Unfortunately, Windows 7 does not come with Windows Mail.

Here's how to do it:
