I think you need a minimum of Office 2010. That should work.  Office 2007 is too old for Windows 8 and Home and Student was even less capable that Professional.

robbiebreslin, yes, a lot of people say they are having a lot of problems installing Office 2007 on Windows 8. Microsoft says, "Office 2007 is compatible with Windows 8."
