Note: Microsoft Office 2007 program is a 32-bit application and can run on a Windows 64-bit platform (Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, and Windows Vista) but there may be some feature limitations.
Operating System: Microsoft Windows XP SP2 or later (including Windows Vista) or Microsoft Windows Server 2003 or higher.
Computer Specifications: 500-megahertz (MHz) processor (CPU) speed or higher, 256-megabyte RAM or higher, and CD or DVD-ROM drive.
Note: For Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 with Business Contact Manager, you'll need 1 gigahertz CPU speed and 512 megabytes of RAM.
Hard Disk: 2 gigabytes (GB) free space for installation, although some of it will be freed after installation is complete.
Monitor: Super VGA (800 × 600) or higher resolution monitor (1024 × 768) or higher is recommended.
Internet: Broadband connection of 128 kilobits per second for download and activation of products is recommended. However, it's not required; if necessary, you can install from a DVD and activate the product by phone.
Outlook 2007 Users: Microsoft Exchange Server 2000 or later is required for Outlook 2007 users. (This is somewhat misleading though, because Outlook can also be used with non-Microsoft mail servers. Still, for corporations that use Exchange this is important: if they are considering installing Office 2007, their Exchange version needs to be Exchange Server 2000 or later, or else Outlook 2007 won't work.)
It works fine, as long as you dont use voice input. Voice changed to the OS with Vista, office 2003 was the last version to have built in speech recognition. There is no work around that I know of. I've used the combo for years now on my laptop, no other problems that I'm aware of.
