  • 1. Office 2007 Professional shipped from US, will it work on UK Windo
    Ok, well the title says it all really. I've searched through many eBay listings to find a genuine seller who can ship me a version of Office 2007 Pro for a decent price. There are many scams going on so I've spent ages looking for someone who has a lot of positive feedback and little negative. The thing is, because it's being shipped from the United States I am a little bit cautious on how the installation will proceed on a UK Windows PC. I don't know if versions produced in different countries will work on other countries machines. Because the seller does ship to the UK, I assume the set-up and installation should proceed smoothly. . . but I need to verify for peace of mind really.
  • 2. Reinstalling Office 2003 on recivered PC.....
    I am having to recover my HP due to several conflicts or at least that is what HP is suggesting I do. However, if I have exhausted the number of times my copy of Office 2003 has been installed, will I be denied another install even though I am simply resetting the same computer. Is there anyway Microsoft will allow me to reinstall my retail copy of Office 2003?
  • 3. Restoring Office 2007 Trial Version After Uninstalling
    My new computer came with the trial version of office 2007. At the time I did not want to use it and subequently uninstalled the trial version and went back to using office 2003. My work has now bought a licence key for Office Small Business 2007 for me to use but since I have uninstalled the trial version is there anyway to get it back or can I download the trial version from MS and would it let me activate it using the code I have? I have a code which is an oem code for New HP PC's. I cannot restore the trial version on my pc - no disc and nothing in the program restore for it either, using Windows Vista Home Premium. Thanks
  • 4. Office H & S 2007 install on Vista 64 problems
    Hi everyone, I'd really appreciate some help. I just replaced my 10-year-old PC and am trying to install Office Home and Student 2007 on my new Vista 64 machine. Unfortunately, whether I use the autorun or manually double-click setup.exe on the disc, nothing happens. I get an hourglass briefly, the disc spins in the drive, and setup.exe appears in the task manager for about three seconds then disappears. Nothing else happens. I'm logged in as an administrator, I've tried to right-click on setup.exe and select run as admin from there, I've tried changing compatibility mode to XP SP2, and nothing seems to work. I've been searching online for awhile now and can't find anything with regard to this issue. Has anyone seen this before? Or, can anyone give me some suggestions? I didn't anticipate any problems because I read in many places that Office 2007 runs fine on Vista 64, so I uninstalled Works and the free 60-day Office trial from my new PC before I tried to install the full version of Office to avoid conflicts. Unfortunately, I don't have access to Word or Excel now, and it's going to be a problem. Help! Thanks in advance.

You may have a corrupted download - try it again and turn off any download 
manager and you AV while you download it.  BE sure to re-enable you AV once 
the download completes.

1.Microsoft Office\Office\EXCEL.EXE is not a valid Win32 application

Lately, In trying to open an excel file, or excel program, 
I get the referenced notein a pop-up box.  
Nothing eles opens.
Using Office 2000Pro and Win98.  All other files seem ok.  
Also, Microsoft automatic updater won't perform eaither.

Any clues?

2.EXCEL.EXE is not a valid win32 application

Sometimes when I try to open excel directly, or by double-clicking an excel 
file, I get the error message "EXCEL.EXE is not a valid win32 application". 
The first time it happened, I tried repairing office - and that seemed to 
work - but the last time, I shut down and restarted the comp and excel 
started to work again. Excel seems to be the only app that does this. I use 
it quite a bit, and it's giving me flashbacks to windows 95's multiple 
reboots per day to keep things working ;)

I'm running office pro 2007 sp1 on vista sp1 (oh, and this started to happen 
after the vista sp1 install)


3.Excel.exe is not a valid Win32 Application.

My system:  Vista Business 32bit with SP1, Office 2007 Professional with SP1.

For a while I was running Vista (without SP1) and using Office 2007 with 
SP1.  Rarely any issues.

Sometime after installing Vista SP1, I've been having odd issues with my 
Office installation, Excel especially.  I don't know if it's its SP1 related, 
or if it's just something went wrong with the Office install.

Here's the issue.  I leave my PC on 24/7 and simply lock it when I leave the 
office.  After several days, Excel will just stop working, completely.  When 
I try to launch excel I get the error "Excel.exe is not a valid Win32 

I have tried reapplying SP1.  After reapplying the SP1 and rebooting, 
everything returned to normal.  So I thought.  A week or so later, same 
issue.  It turns out simply rebooting resolves the issue temporarily.

I thought my Excel exe was corrupted (i.e. some file wrote/deleted 
information from the binary file).  I verified modified dates with other 
excel exe's and everything is the same.  Nothing seems out of the ordinary.

I can't find any relevant errors in my event log.  I can't see anything out 
of the ordinary when using SysInternal's process monitor either.  It's like 
something in Vista thinks this EXE is a bad EXE and it won't let it launch 
until I reboot.

I have even noticed after several times of launching the exe, if I browsed 
to the installation directory, the actual icon for Excel was dimmed, as if it 
was like a hidden file or something.  WTH?  When I rebooted, it returned to 
the normal icon.  I have yet to see the icon dim again, even during times of 

I disabled my antivirus thinking it was the culprit to no avail.

What in the world could be happening?  When I use the process monitor, the 
exe never even gets executed (i.e. no events for excel.exe).

Please help!!!
