Considering upgrade to Office 2013 - potential problems with Office 2007 files?

Q: Considering upgrade to Office 2013 - potential problems with Office 2007 files?


A charity is considering upgrading its workstations to Office 2013 from Office 2007.
They have lots of files in the .docx, .xlsx, .xlsm, and .xltm formats that they would need to access on a daily basis.

- Would the upgrade cause compatability problems with working with files created under these above formats?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

We have an upgrade on our computer units here in the company, my problem is when users save their 2007 excel files an error pops up, Errors were detected while saving "File Name". Microsoft maybe able to save the file by removing or repairing some features. To make the repairs in new file, click Continue. To cancel saving the file, click Cancel.

By the way, the files were save on the file server and users access them through single roaming profile that we created with full access on their folders.
i am hoping i could find an answer.

thank you

You need to purchase Office 2013 Pro
When you do it will ask you if you want to upgrade
and of course you pick this option

Once it finishes you will be upgraded to office 2013

Hey everyone, First post, hopefully it isn't a waste ha. Our company will be upgrading to Office 2013. I'm trying to get an idea as far as what features might be an issue or have been an issue for other people who upgraded in a company. I suppose this isn't just a Win 7 thing, also will include XP machines and could be more an exchange server question but was just wondering if anyone had an issues when switching. Thanks in advance,KingHyperionEdit: Moved topic from Windows 7 to the more appropriate forum.~ Animal

A:Company Upgrade From Office 2007 to 2013

There shouldn't be too many issues in terms of Office files saved in 2007 format being re-opened in 2013.
However, you won't be able to install 2013 on Windows XP machines -- they will have to be upgraded to at least Windows 7 (scroll down for OS requirements):
In terms of integrating with Exchange, Outlook 2013 won't work with Exchange 2003; you would have to upgrade to at least 2007. Scroll down further on the above link for supported Exchange versions.

Any idea when Office 2013 will be available for download / upgrade?


A:Purchased Office 2010 w/ free upgrade to Office 2013

Hi there
it's in the Ms store already -- although IMO I'd stick to Office 2010 if I were you.
Anyway YMMV so here's the link (UK store) .

Microsoft Store United Kingdom Online Store - Office Suites

What you'd do to get the upgrade price I don't know but Office 2013 IS available for download. Try phoning / emailing -- actually a better option these days is to use a FAX believe it or not for this type of question. Emails tend to get lost as people have 100'000's to deal with, phone calls are diabolical --endless menu systems, loads of waiting and people on the other side of the planet who are incredibly difficult to understand.

The lowly fax machine when it chatters into life usually gets INSTANT attention these days . !!

I am running Office 2013 on a cleanly installd SDD that has only ever had office 2013 installed on it. Any idea why windows update is giving me Office 2007 updates, specifically


I should decline these, right?


A:Office 2007 updates when I only have Office 2013

No don't decline these updates.
Office 2013 updates in the background & does not show up in the usual Windows Updates section. I am using Office 2013 Pro & I have it set for installing updates automatically.
It would be best just to let any updates that are required to be installed. Often certain updates are incorporated to cover a few versions of Office as they earlier ones need it so they incorporate it to cover all the applicable versions, which may also include later versions.
Therefore just leave it alone as fiddling with updates often causes trouble. Also it is just a whole lot of unnecessary work for you.

Good Day,

I've often used the Files and Transfer Wizard to move files in the Windows XP environment, including those for people moving from Office 2003 to 2007, however, I've just been asked to move a person from a computer that would result in them moving backwards from Office 2007 to Office 2003; is this possible? What concerns should be considered? Obviously if they have a number of documents saved in the 2007 it could be problematic, though could the compatibility pack offered by Microsoft offset that concern? Thoughts? Thanks.

Hey All,

Here is my issue. The Company we consult for has not transitioned all of the way to Office 2007. We have a number of machines that still have Office 2003. Compatibility Pack works on almost all issues.

Current issue is one of our users received a PowerPoint 2003 that has embedded PowerPoint 2007 files. When the user opens the PowerPoint 2007 file Office 2003 shuts down. He has to download the 2007 file to his desktop.

From what I can see this is because the file conversion process shuts down Office 2003 before attempting to open the PowerPoint 2007 file.

Another issue that may be complicating the error is we had to run a Fixit patch from Microsoft that was causing Excel, Word and PowerPoint to be scanned which caused long opening times. I don't remember the KB article for that one at the moment but will find it if I need to.

Thanks for any help in advance.

We are wanting to up-grade our current Office suite Office 2003 to either Office 2010 or Office 2013.  Our PC's are running Windows 7
I would just like to know what peoples opinions and advice is on this?

A:Up-grade from Office 2003 to Office 2010 or Office 2013

 I can't speak to Office 2013, but I've done numerous upgrades to Office through 2010.  When you install the new version, you have the option to keep the old version or just replace it.  Starting with Office 2007 the familiar menu bar has been replaced with the ribbons which take a lot of getting used to for folks used to older versions.  There's a little program called UbitMenu that will add most of the menu bar functions back in the 2007 and 2010 versions that a lot of folks find helpful.  If you do opt to have two different versions installed at the same time, what happens is that when you switch from one to the other, it goes through a juggling act that takes a minute or so.  It's a bit of a pain, but if you need it, it could be a convenience.
Good luck.

I now have a new problem, before I managed to open 2007 files by opening Office 2010 and then from inside the application choosing to open a file. The problem I have though is if I just try to open an Office 2007 file then I can't open it, and I can't change the default program to open it.

Ok, well up until yesterday my father was using Office 2000 with Microsoft binder for work. He just got a new laptop for work and he's got Office 2007 installed. From the looks of Microsoft's site it states that 'Microsoft Unbind is not included with Office 2007.' Looks like what I really need is Microsoft Binder from Office 2000. Is there a place I can download it (legally) or purchase it? He literally has thousands of binder files (*.obd) that he needs to be able to access. I've tried searching with nothing turning up.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

A:Microsoft Office Binder (*.obd files) with Office 2007?

So further searching turned up that Unbind for Office XP/2003 is just a waste of time for Office 2007 and no point in looking further into that.

So then I found this:

Which seems to me if I can track down a Office 2000 disc I should be able to install JUST Binder 2000. Results show that it works along side Office XP/2003 so I don't see why it wouldn't with Office 2007. It would only be used to unbind old files, not create new ones.

If anyone has any other thoughts that would be great.
I'll look into what I wrote above tomorrow and post back with the results if need be.

Several months ago, I downloaded the beta version of Office 2007. I decided to remove it and go back to Office 2003. Ever since, I can no longer access Outlook 2003 and I am using the 2002 version. The other Office 2003 functions I am able to use. Also, I am unable to install Office Updates because when I do, Outlook 2002 and Word 2003 lose some functionality and I have to restore.

Starting with Office 2007 Enterprise x86, going to Office 2013 Standard x64, no matter which way I try to go about it always ends in every Office application crashing (Ex: MS Word has stopped working..) as soon as it is opened.

I cannot use the "upgrade" feature during 2013 installation as it will not install Office products of different architectures side by side, so my only option is to uninstall 2007 and install 2013, which produces the crash. I have searched for a MS documented 'best practice' or recommended method of achieving this to no avail.. also looked for a MS removal tool for 2007 but came up empty.

Has anyone else encountered this problem?

If you have information on a MS best procedure or a MS removal tool, please let me know! Any other suggestions such as a manual technique would be very much appreciated as well.

Had uninstalled 2007 and used the Fixit tool with no luck once, then reinstalled Windows 7 and repeated the process of:

Install Office 2007 Enterprise x86
Uninstall Office 2007 Enterprise x86
Run Fixit Tool
Installed Office 2013 Standard x64
And all seems to be working well now. Tested once with a Windows 7 x64 SP1 install with no driver or OS updates. I am going to repeat the entire process once to be sure it's reliable, as I did essentially the same exact thing before reinstalling the OS, but just wanted to post what I'd found so far for the community.

I am about to upgrade to six Windows 7 machines and am seriously considering staying with my Office 2007 for Word and Excel (and PowerPoint, which I rarely use). I cannot find any compelling reasons to go to Office 2013 at this time and about the only reason I can think of that "might" make it worthwhile is something few reviewers seem to talk about. That's load time.

I will be putting SSDs into my two main machines for OS and apps so that should certainly help, but the laptop and other office machine won't have SSD (at least not for awhile). Time is money and I open and close Word and Excel many times a day.

Is there any chance that Word and Excel 2013 will load so much more quickly than Word and Excel 2007 that it's worth the upgrade?


A:Office 2007 vs 2013 - loading time?

Hi there,

I wouldn't say load time is a factor when comparing the two versions. The OS helps, because it prioritizes what it keeps in memory from the number of times you open an application, so it should be faster the more you open it regardless of the version. I'd always recommend upgrading from Office 2007, there were just too many issues, like charting (which is partially broken), and much better in subsequent versions. 2010 is pretty solid, but I personally prefer 2013 because of the rich feature set.

If you really just don't want 2013, I'd recommend at least upgrading to 2010, which is much better than 2007. If it were me, I'd just go with 2013. There have been many advancements, like slicers, sparklines, timelines, flash fill, Power Pivot, not to mention the under-the-hood changes.

I did an upgrade installation from Office 2003 PRO to Office 2010 PRO. I had several issues with Access denied on C:\Config.msi. I usually select retry and all is well. I think I may have missed one of the retries before I did the system restart.
Now I get an error 2203 whenever I reboot, and the Office 2003 installer keeps popping up anytime I try to do anything.
I tried uninstalling Office 2003 and was told that I had a corrupted install. I tried re-installing it and it seems to just hang.
I also tried to uninstall and repair Office 2010.

You didn't say what types of accounts they are, but mostly likely there isn't a way, unless there is a third-party tool or these are Exchange accounts.

Hi there On Thursday th Sept I restarted my computer windows to let windows updates take effect I then went to open a word MS corrupting office files 2013 document and it read that MS office 2013 corrupting files it couldn't be opened because there was a problem with its contents Under details it said the file was corrupt and cannot be opened When you click ok it asks if you want to try to recover the file MS office 2013 corrupting files I clicked yes but again there was a problem with the contents and the details said that some parts were missing or invalid I then tried to open other word documents and excel files and all with the same problem I've also noticed in the preview pane it is missing certain properties like how many pages there are I've tried Repairing office Uninstalling it and installing a version Repairing the file Opening it on another computer Uninstalling the windows updates Using salvage software Scanning for viruses System restore the restore point was corrupted for some reason and it didn't work For a brief period all my files were able to be opened again so I do have recent backups but the issue is that it keeps corrupting any documents I upload and save after the computer is turned off restarted However I did start a new document and that is still yet to be corrupted even when other files uploaded after that was made have become corrupted Any ideas Is this just an update that messed with my program

A:MS office 2013 corrupting files

You say you tried system restore and the restore point was corrupted? Did you get any error codes or error messages with that? That suggests your registry or certain system files may be corrupt. The fact that the office files are corrupt and can't be fixed, and that it happened after you installed new updates, seems to back that up.
In short, this may be symptomatic of larger issues on your system. You may want to run sfc/scannow from the command prompt.

Hi there
Why on earth do people insist on using these 3rd party uninstaller apps for BOG STANDARD Microsoft applications --Ms OFFICE is one of the most used pieces of software on earth so installing / uninstalling it should be a breeze via STANDARD uninstall method.

Had you simply uninstalled via control panel then the entire problem would not exist.

Your 3rd party uninstaller obviously hasn't done its job properly as there is still some indication on your machine that Microsoft Update thinks you still have Office 2010 installed.

IMO 3rd party apps are better left for NON OS type applications - things like installing / uninstalling / updating software should be left to the OS itself. Very few 3rd party apps IMO should be allowed to interfere with the internal functions of the OS itself -- even AV software - but that's another issue.

My solution here would be to either restore your syste to a time before you installed the "Uninstaller" app or re-install a clean copy of windows, re-install the version of office you want and apply the updates.

Note -- when Ms updates programs it might make all sorts of registry changes "on the fly" and it's impossible for a 3rd party uninstaller to be able to handle or even find all these changes.

Hello: I brought my MS Office to my new computer a few months ago. That version was/is 2010 on a windows XP. I now have the 2013 version of MicroSoft Office it is however the 64 bit version on a machine running windows 7 Home Premium.

I am concerned about losing my data over the transition.

I received the message that it is not possible to instal the 64 bit version until the 32 bit version is removed.

I would be very grateful if someone would provide guidance on the correct order and steps to accomplish this change over. The Data is backed up. I would not like to lose the Data in the various programs.

I'm running Win XP-SP2 with office 2003 also with SP2 and recently purchased Office 2007.
As I recall when I installed Office 2003 over the old one, the system interpreted it as an upgrade and kept all my previous configurations.

What will happen if I install Office 2007? Same thing?
By big concern is related to my company e-mail which is a intermedia exchange account. Meaning, as you know, it synchronizes with the server to update MS Outlook.
Will the new office installation delete the existing exchange profile?

Have a new laptop with Windows 7 and would like to load my Office Pro 7 upgrade on to the computer. The eligibility program for it was Works 6, which was factory installed on my old computer.

If Works 6 was factory installed on the old computer, it's very likely OEM, which means it's tied to the computer.

Was the upgrade program part of the purchase of the old computer in the form of a coupon? If so, I believe you're unfortunately out of luck again. Those programs are almost always tied to that specific copy on that specific computer. If not, you should be able to buy Works 9 and do the upgrade. It's readily available all over the place, and you can even buy it directly from Microsoft (albeit at full retail) at

Has anyone bought the upgrade to MS Office 2007. Is it really worth the money? Please advise.

A:Windows Office 2007 upgrade.

I think it depends. If you use Office quite a bit and don't really mind not having the latest and greatest version, it's worth it. You would probably save some cash because there is a newer version. But, if you don't really use office much, don't buy it. If you want the latest and greatest, skip 2007 and get 2010. I use 2007 and it's been working great for me.

Hi there
sounds wrong to me -- 45 mins to install ANY version of office via a LAN or not sounds definitely wrong - upgrades though generally DO take longer than clean install due to the complexity of the process.

Might be better to uninstall office 2007 and install office 2010 from scratch. Standard company templates etc you've probably got on a LAN anyway for your users.

Installing Office 2010 (X-64) from scratch (admittedly on a W8 rather than W7 system - but that shouldn't make a difference - was trialling W8) using a small not very powerful Netbook took exactly 7 minutes -- that was the PRO version with OUTLOOK, ACCESS, EXCEL, WORD, POWERPOINT, PUBLISHER etc.

Something definitely sounds crazy with your installation.

(Note with mine that was the BASE install only -- it took a while to download and install SP1 together with all the fixes -- now if your install is updating these automatically then since is the longest part of the process the time will probably be the same - assuming you are getting the fixes via Windows Update).

I am planning on upgrading from Office 2000 to Office 2007 and I've run across a few concerns. I'd like to use the upgrade version to save some money.

Does this upgrade overwrite the Office 2000 applications or run alongside them?

If it does overwrite, does it also import contacts, emails, etc from Outlook automatically?

Is 2007 backwards compatible with 2000 files?

If I have Small Business 2000 and am buying Small Business 2007, will Powerpoint install on 2007 even though it was not included in the 2000 version or can I only upgrade apps which are included in the 2000 install?

Thank you very much,


A:Office 2000 to 2007 upgrade

I don't know how much different it will be, but we recently upgraded from 2000 to 2007 as well. It was the full version however.

I've used other upgrades for Office 2000 - 2003 though, so I know that they will most likely overwrite the old version.

2007 is backwards compatible, but you must make sure you save as the 97 - 2003 version of the file type to open it on an older version. The new file types end with an x to differentiate.

I'm not 100% certain, but I would think that Powerpoint won't work unless you've got the old version to upgrade from. Again, with a different upgrade from 2000 - 2003, when trying to install the upgrade cd without the previous version installed it asked for the previous version to be installed first before it could continue.

Hope that helps!

Hello, I'm new to these forums (just registered a few moments ago). I just recently upgraded from Windows Vista Home Premium to Windows 7 Professional. So far, I love it!

I do however have one problem. I used a program to locate my product key for Office 2007 before I upgraded so I would be able to install it after the upgrade. However when I enter that key into the Activation box in Office, it says the key is incorrect.

Is this because it thinks that the key is still in use? Was there something I should have done (deactivate it or something) before I upgraded? Is there anyway to fix this because I really don't feel like spending another wad of cash for this program. I don't want to use any alternatives like OpenOffice or Google Docs.

I appreciate any input you can give. Thanks!

Welcome to Seven Forums, TrevorX3.

I also have Office 2007, and re-loaded it when I moved from XP to Windows 7. There was no need to deactivate it, I just put in the key that came with the CDs.

You said that you had to use a program to find the key. It is possible that either the program did not work correctly or that you copied the numbers incorrectly - don't you have the original media for it?

Sorry Jonesnewton, The process to upgrade to office 2010 is to buy a new copy of Office 2010. I don't believe that MS has a cheap upgrade.

Good Evening Everyone,

I have a few questions concerning the Installation of 2010 Office. I know that I have to uninstall Office 2007. I have no clue on how to save or where to save my documents from Office 2007. The documents consist of Word, Excel, Powerpoint and a few various folders. Should I from the Start Menue click on Documents select all and copy. Where should I place this copy? Can It be left on my hard drive? After I install Office 2010 can I then copy the "Document File" and place in Documents. Will all the files end up in the proper place for their programs, Word files go to Word, Excel goes to Excel so on and so forth. Thank you so much for all your help and cooperation. It is greatly appreciated. I hope I described my situation correctly. I look forward to hearing from you.

A:2010 Office Professional Plus to Replace 2007 Office Small Business

But you don't have to uninstall Office 2007 to upgrade to 2010. That's the general rule as you can generally upgrade from lower SKUs to higher SKUs (Small Business to Pro Plus). As far as saving your documents, you can really save them wherever you like on your hard drive or on any CD or flash drive if you wish to do so. As far as file types, after 2010 is installed, they should all register properly for their programs so that Word documents open in Word, Excel Documents in Excel, etc.

Though if you have all of you documents already saved within "Documents" or "My Documents" or some other folder you've set aside and you want to uninstall 2007 before upgrading to 2010, the documents themselves will be retained when you uninstall, you just won't be able to really do much with them until you install 2010.

OK I am curious. I am trying to understand the difference between these two: Office 2013 is just an updated version from office 2011 and its predecessor, and Office 365 is like Google docs, except that its a paid subscription. I don't see any logic to why I want to pay annually where I can just do Google docs, or just use a regular office application.

A:Office 2010 (32 bit) and Office 2013 (64 bit) together

Here is one reference that might satisfy you:

"Compatibility with existing Office files and solutions

The 64-bit version of Microsoft Office isn?t compatible with any other 32-bit version of Office programs. So you must first uninstall all 32-bit versions of Office programs before you install the 64-bit version of Office."

I found another on Technet, but like a dummy I left the page, and, for some reason, couldn't find the reference again. It said 64 and 32 bit versions cannot be installed on the same machine.

While possible it is not recommended to install multiple versions of Office on the same computer. But they both must be the same bits. The only way this could be done is to install one on a virtual machine.

Is there any difference in the features provided by office 2013 vs office 365? I am looking to get one, but cannot decide.

A:Choosing between office 2013 and office 365

yes some extras , they are both 2013 versions at the moment
365 gives you the full range
365 you can unauthorise and re-install on a different PC
365 comes with 1TB of onedrive space
365 you can also put on a tablet or phone
365 will be updated to the latest version

2013 stays on the PC its first installed on and cannot be transferred
2013 you can get different versions (with outlook, publisher, access products), which cost different prices

Microsoft doesn't certify Office 97 to work with Vista: being said, lot's of people on the web have gotten it to work with varying degrees of success.Ensure that you install the application in compatibility mode - both as "Run as Windows 98" and "Run as Administrator"Don't install Service Pack 2 - it has problems. But, from what I've read, it'll let you gracefully exit the SP2 setup if you started it.

Hello Community,

I'm having an issue here, and reading through threads and forum posts - i'm getting nowhere.

I get no error messages when trying to open a file from a mapped drive.

I have a user onsite unable to open any Mircosoft Office 2013 files from any of his mapped network drives. If he takes the files, copies them locally to his laptop, then open perfectly fine. However, if i try to open a office file from their mapped drive, it just opens up a blank document.

--I've done the changing folder name of the Microsoft folder within %AppData%, still no luck.
--I've tried repairing Microsoft Office, still no luck.

I don't want to uninstall office, then re-install as i will have to drop the computer off our domain (Group Policy for some reason, blocks office.) *I'd prefer this to be the final option.

Surely there must be a fix around? Much thanks!

I installed office 2007 (full install after uninstall of office 2003) on vista yesterday and every time I open an office product, it gives me a message ?please wait while Windows configures Microsoft Office professional 2007?. Then it pops a window with a status bar for ?Configuration Progress?.

I looked this up online and it said that this was caused by installing as a user, not an administrator. So I uninstalled office entirely, booted, and reinstalled as administrator.

Still doing the same thing. Anyone have any ideas?

If your computer is relatively new, it may have come with a trial install of Office 2010 - check the Start menu, and the Programs & Features listing.
You may also have installed Viewers for things like PowerPoint 2010, which still require updates.

Hey guys, my wife is taking a course that requires her to install Office 2010. The issue is that she wants to preserve her current setup which includes Office 2003 and 2007 existing side-by-side on her Windows 7 (64-bit Home Edition) notebook.
The 2003/2007 setup is not one that she really wants to mess with (i.e., she has no interest whatsoever in uninstalling the two Office suites that she currently has), so ideally she would like to have Office 2010 installed temporarily (for the duration of her course) on the machine without interfering with the current setup.
What is the most painless way of doing this that does not involve shelling out for a second computer?

Hi Folks,

The title of the thread says it all really.

I have legitimate copy of Microsoft Office 2007 Ultimate on my PC. I have just bought a copy of Office 2016 Professional Plus through the HUP.

I haven't installed Office 2016 yet - I use Office 2010 at work and find using Custom Animations in PowerPoint tricky compared to Office 2007.

I'd like to install Office 2016 alongside Office 2007 until I have tried Office 2016 to see if the Custom Animations in PP are easier than the 2010 version before switching completely.

My question is, can I install Office 2016 alongside Office 2007 without conflicts - switching between versions without a problem or will installing Office 2016 screw Office 2007 or worse FUBAR both Office installations or my PC.

Any help gratefully received.

However, I don't want to lose MS Access or MS Publisher to upgrade.

I installed office 2007 ultimate alongside office 2003 professional. Microsoft outlook and publisher was removed from my office 2003 prior to office 2007 installation. I also opted not to install microsoft outlook 2007.

It seems that each time I load word 2007 or 2003 after previously opening the other version (ie. load 2003 followed by 2007 OR load 2007 followed by 2003), a window would opened up indicating that either the configuration or installation process is taking place, hence delaying the startup. However, once the program has started, it would run without problem. I do not intend to unistall my 2003. There was no problem loading excel 2003/2007, powerpoint 2003/2007 and access 2003/2007.

I am running on Windows XP SP2 that is regularly updated. Thank you

I am trying to upgrade machines that have a office 2007 STD installed using a custom MSP file and SCCM. All of our machines have Office 2007 STD on them but some users require the pro version. In order to do this I have created a new MSP for the office 2007 Pro and placed it in the update folder. When I run the Setup.exe from SCCM I am presented with the Office splash screen and then nothing. If I remove the customer MSP file and run Setup.exe manually I am prompted for the serial number and then the install proceeds as normal. I have read in other forums about an XML file that can be edited to do reinstalls but I have no experience with XML. Is there a GUI driven utility I can use to edit this?

Any suggestions would be appreciated
