    Reinstall Office 2007 when install media is unavailable?


    This is more an exercise in planning a possible future than an urgent 'need now' situation.

    I have Office 2007 installed and activated on one of my PCs. It was bought second hand with Windows 7 and Excel/Word/Powerpoint 2007 preinstalled by the OEM. The Win7 has been upgraded to Win10, and all works well and is activated including Office. However, the Windows is 32-bit and I may one day decide to clean install 64-bit Win10.

    The problem comes with how to reinstall Office 2007. The keys are easy enough to find, but they won't work with any available install media. ISOs for any version of the Office 2007 suite can be found if you look hard enough, from Standard through Home & Student and Professional.

    But that's not what the OEM installed and not what the keys are for. No, on close examination of the registry the OEM seems to have used an individual standalone installer for each of Excel, Word and Powerpoint. This conclusion is supported by the 'About' Window, which if it was part of an Office suite should say which one, like this Word from Office Professional:

    How to See the About Dialog and Version Information in Office 2007

    Mine doesn't, that line is empty.

    These standalone installers are the only ones my keys are valid for, and are impossible to find now.

    But I do have the MSOCache folder with (apparently) all the .cab files and so on needed for Office 2007. Is it possible to use these to reinstall Office 2007 after a clean install of x64 Windows? The install of course would be to the same machine so there's no question of moving the Office licence to a new machine.

    :)

    Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007

    This is my list of installed Office 2007 updates [Control panel, Programs & features, View installed updates]

    Reinstall Office 2007 when install media is unavailable? [​IMG]

    - I have installed Office 2007 Word, Excel, PowerPoint & Access.
    - If you have installed other Office 2007 components you will find others shown in your own list of installed updates [once you are fully up to date].

    I suggest saving copies of each one now in case they are ever removed from the MS update catalog downloads lists.
    https://www.catalog.update.microsoft...?q=Office+2007
    - Just download the updates shown in your own list of installed updates rather than the whole list provided by the MS update catalog because the catalog includes ones that were subsequently superceded by others.
    - SP3, which was a major update that established a new beginning for Office 2007 and upon which all further updates were based, is also described in Description of the 2007 Office suite SP3 and of Office Language Pack 2007 SP3 and the article also provides a download link for it
    - If I reinstall Office, I work through the updates list in KB numerical order starting with SP3

    MS Office 2007 word not working

    what build do you have installed?

    I have been using Office 2007 on windows 10 and only experienced any issues when I upgraded to build 15014.

    having reset windows and reinstalled Office 2007 (and everything else) and Office 2007 is working without issue.

    I have since installed build 15019 and office 2007 continues to behave.

    Office 2007 is 10 years old, and operating systems have moved on, it is not unreasonable to expect problems with old software, more so in the later (insider) builds.

    MS are not purposely blocking Office 2007 but nor are they putting effort into keeping very old versions of programs compatible - it costs time and money and impacts on the functionality of the OS.

    you can reinstall windows 8.1 from the original media or, as srfeeman suggested, contact the equipment manufacturer.
