Windows 7: Compatibility pack for 2007 office system

02 Mar 2014   #31


Apparently PP used to be only available as integral part of 2007 Office suite. But now, PP is available separately. Does that mean that if I do not acquire PP I do not need the compatibility Pack since the PP viewer does not seem to be dependent on the pack? Or is it?

Speaking of Programs of questionable use, what is Silverlight.... and am I using it?

It is a video streaming program to stream VC-1 high quality videos. You better keep it.

And the PP viewer and the PP program are 2 seperate entities. One does not depend on the other. And as far as I can remember, you could always buy PowerPoint seperately - same as Word and Excel.

I always thought I use Adobe Flash to stream vids.

I opened your tutorial on PP and realized I definitely do not have enough PC IQ to do all those stuffs. Or enough patience. Now I value our secretarial pool even more.

MS Office Compatibility pack question
Hello! I use MS Office 2003. Hypothetically, if I install office compatibility pack and after installation save some *.doc with my word 2003, will that file be saved as a 2007 doc, thus it can't be open with some other word 2003 (without compatability pack installed)?
