Windows 7: Office 2007 not working

Office 2007 not working

I've updated from XP to Windows 7 and I wanted to keep my office of course -> I placed it on an USB.
I placed Office back on the new operating system.
I tried to start Word and it says: program not configured for this OS
I can't find the box anymore with my Office and I can't use the old files configured for XP.
What should I do?

How do you mean you placed office on the System ? Did you do a fresh install ? You will need to re-install Office not just copy it across from your USB stick.

I did a clean install and placed my old office files on an USB and placed all the office files back when Windows 7 was installed. I know that the easiest option is reinstall, but I can't without a box. I also can't use a trial on the Microsoft site and activate the key (because that's on the stupid box).

That's what I am thinking too but he might still be able to get the key from his USB stick or from the copy he has copied into windows long shot I know but worth a try.

You can't see the Office key because it is not installed. You need to reinstall Office. You can't just copy it off your old installation. Do you have a disc with Office on it?

He said he doesn't have the disk The only other option I can suggest is that you download and use Office 2010 which you can use for free until October this year sorry.
