Office 2007 Compatibility Pack 12-10-09

My new Windows 7 laptop came with a trial version of Office 2007 (Student), 
which I uninstalled prior to first use.  However, I have the PowerPoint 
Viewer installed, which I use.  Question: There's a huge 173 MB Office 
Compatibility Pack in the Control Panel, Programs and Features, which can be 
uninstalled.  Can I uninstall this without any effect on the PowerPoint 
Viewer or Microsoft Works (or Windows Live Mail) programs?  Thanks.

Hi, Lone Star,

The compatibility pack is actually quite useful if you are running a 
previous version of Office. Are you only using Works?

If you are using the PowerPoint Viewer 2003 and you uninstall the 
compatibility pack, I believe you may have trouble opening PowerPoint 2007 
files.

You can upgrade to the PPT 2007 Viewer if that's not what you have 
installed:

So, the answer is: it kind of depends. But Non-Office programs (Works and 
Live Mail) should not be impacted.

Can't remove MS Office Test Drive
I can't seem to remove test drive. I have seen some previous posts, so I tried to Repair disk Permissions first, then ran Remove Office from the folder called Office 2004 for Mac Test Drive.

GP10 Service pack rollback
What do I need to do if for example the Service pack install on the server fails (power failure), what are the rollback steps? I know I need to perform a restore of Dynamics and company databases, but what about the application? what files are modified within the GP folder? There are no rollbacks that I'm aware of. After restoring Dynamics and the company databases, I would uninstall GP10 and reinstall GP10 and the service pack you were at before starting your upgrade. I would also contact MS, if possible. -- Dick White MCP, MCTS "nelazuela" wrote: > What do I ne...

2000 versions compatible with Office 2007

Access 2007 cant open an immediate window with a 2000 mdb
The local 2007 access machine i have can open the mdb modules and immediate window. However on a client site the same mdb will not open with their version of access 2007. Its not a user name issue we checked that and i installed all the vb6 stuff on the client site and still nothing. the odd thing is if you have the 2000 mde on the client site you can open an immediate window.
