  • 1. 2003 Pro validation
    I own a fully licensed, full version of Office 2003 Pro. This was previously installed on a computer running XP. In Feb. 2007 I had to purchase a replacement computer which runs Vista as the OS. I installed Office 2003 Pro without incident and can use all programs without error. However, everytime I try to install an Office update/upgrade I receive a validation error. I assume that this is due to a previous registration of this product on my old computer. I am looking for information on how to get this validated so that I can update/upgrade with downloads as needed.
  • 2. Installing MS-Office 2000
    Since last 14 hours I've been trying to install MS-Office 2K in my WinXP Pro m/c. but MS-Office just refuses to install. Whenever the installation progresses a bit, errors get generated saying this file doesn't exist in the installation CD or that file doesn't exist in the installation CD though I am more than 100% sure that the file exists in the installation CD since this isn't the first time I am installing MS-Office 2K in my WinXP Pro m/c! I even tried installing the different components like MS-Word, MS- Access, MS-Excel separately but that doesn't resolve the problem. Can someone please guide me how do I install MS-Office 2K in my WinXP m/c? On previous occasions, the same error used to come up intermittently but today the error is coming up after every 3-4 minutes. Also more than often, the error points to the same file again & again today.
  • 3. Cannot install due to beta
    I am attempting to install Office 2007 Professional on a computer which had the Beta 2 TR on it. I get the error that it cannot upgrade a prerelease version with the new one, and to uninstall the prerelease version. I uninstalled every Beta 2007 product from add/remove programs and renamed OFFICE12 in Program Files/Office to OFFICE12OLD which i would suspect should effectively declare it non existant. I have not made changes to the registry, i assume the uninstaller should have done this. What do i have to do to install the new version? Look through the registry?
  • 4. Remove ICON
    Does anyone know of a way to remove the print icon from the standard toolbar within office (word, excel, etc, etc) I want to force our users to got to the file menu and print from there. is this possible through GPO or the registry w

    Hi, My windows os is broken, but I can access all files of os partition. How to get office(installed on that system) key in this situation ? thanks Vilius

Add Warm Colors to the Color Scheme for Office 2007

Postby UmVk » Mon, 08 Sep 2008 22:51:01 GMT

I just downloaded a trial version of Office 2007.  The blue and silver color 
schemes are in the "cool" color palette and the black is harsh.  You 
definitely need to add "warm" colors to make it easier on the eyes.  A 
mottled brown would be great, for example.  Perhaps this is an issue only for 
older eyes (I'm 47), but the blue, silver and black are a pain to look at 
(literally) for an extended period of time.

You do realize that you can assign any theme to Office if you use a high 
contrast theme, correct?

Change your theme to Windows Classic and select one of the high contrast 
appearance options to change the menus and toolbars.  Once selected, use the 
advanced button to assign the colors you want.

I'm in a training class. One of the other class members is nearly blind and 
is really struggling with the new color schemes. I just found this thread and 
shared it with him. He can finally see the toolbars now. I'm not sure this 
info is sufficiently well publicized for accessibility needs. Thank you. He 
will be much more productive now.

I just installed Office XP 2007. I hate the colors of everything. The more I 
try to change things the worse it gets. it's awful. I am having trouble even 
looking at it. It hurts my eyes! Please Help! I am ready to go back to my old 
version.

Just to clarify, the High-Contrast color schemes were no help to him either 
as shown. The important piece of the explanation was that using those 
schemes, he could change the colors using Advanced.

The disconcerting thing is that Office does not appear to be even remotely 
connected to the setting for Windows.  There are only THREE color schemes and 
NONE OF THEM are even close to visually effective.  I cannot even tell which 
window has the focus.  Office should revert to and use the same theme 
structure as Windows.

2.Changing 2007 color scheme to use Windows colors?

I just had Office 2007 installed, and I would like to change the color
scheme back to something that operates based on those chosen under the
display control panel.  This is mainly so that
(1) the active window display will be different from inactive window
displays in the background.  If I have OL, email messages, and Word
open on top of each other, it all blends together because it's all the
same blue.
(2) it's helpful to be consistent with the display of other non-MS
apps, rather than MS being out there in a world by themselves.

3.PowerPoint 2007 - Edit Color Schemes - now Color Theme

In PowerPoint 2007, how do I edit an existing customized Color theme that 
exisits in a specific presenation file.
Scenario: I open up a PP presenation in 2007 and select a specific slide and 
go to the Color themes under the Design Tab.
Whichever slide I am on, that specific Color Theme is at the top.  I can 
select but can't edit it.
Note: I can edit other custom made Color Themes by doing a right click > 
edit. But even if it is a customized color theme, it does not let me edit it 
if it's not a permanent color theme in my PowerPoint.
Do I really have to Save it/create as a Color Theme, in order to edit it?

Thanks
