Hi, I was wondering if this version is compatible or if another version runs better.

regarding your questionn "if another version runs better."
basically another version will run good as well. maybe you can go better performance if you have 64-bit OS and use 64-bit MS Office .
With newer MS Office you will also get new features which every new MS Office release had.

Office 2007 is supposed to run as noted above. However, I use Office 2013 on my Windows 8.1 Pro laptop.

At this point, and until ALL surrounding software is 64-bit, Microsoft does not recommend 64-bit Office.  I use Office 2013 32-bit on my 64-bit machine and it works very well.

So I recommend moving on to a newer version of Office. Subscription has become a good way of buying Office for individuals.
