  1. What do you mean exactly?

    If you are talking compatibility between Windows7 and Office 2007, there should not be any issues. I have Office 2007 and W7 installed on my machine.

    Unless you are doing an upgrade installation of Windows 7(like from Vista to Win7), then you will have to re-install Office 2007 anyway, but you should be able to run Office 2007 under Win7.

    Thank you for answering. Someone told me I may lose files if I install windows 7.
  4. Yea if you do not backup you current files they will be lost if you are installing W7 on the same hard drive.

    Yes, I am installing w7 over vista. I am afraid to do anything for fear I will mess up my documents in Office 2007.

    If you do a clean install of Windows 7 (format C:, then install), then yes you will lose all the data and programs you have installed on the C: drive. If you are doing an in-place upgrade (like going to Win7 32-bit from Windows Vista 32 bit, or 64-bit to 64-bit) then your shouldn't lose any data. If you are going to W7 from WinXP then you have to do a clean install, regardless. Any clean install will erase any programs or data left on the install drive. Data on other drives will not be affected.

    Good Luck!
