Help installing Office Professional 2007 on Netbook
Posted on 2010-08-12
I am trying to install a new license of Microsoft Office Professional 2007 onto a Toshiba Netbook NB305 running the full license of Windows 7 Home edition.
Prior to attempting to install, I had already gone through the necessary steps to prepare the machine for this version by uninstalling the trial version which came with the machine. I was careful to follow other website instructions in terms of ensuring that I removed any licensing or trial related links that would conflict with this installation.
My need for the Professional 2007 version is specific as the software that will be working with it does not yet support Office 2010, nor does it support the student edition of Office. Their requirements are for the Pro version.
Having said that, I used an external Geahead Mobile Slim DVD drive to run the install, however after watching it labor, it eventually came to a stop (no movement in the progress bar whatsoever) and it said that the program has stopped. Win 7 offered on the screen to find an online site to help troubleshoot, but nothing came up.
Does this version have the capability to run on this machine?
