Does 32-bit Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007 work on 64-bit Windows 8?

Tomas Rongey November 2, 2012

Is Office Enterprise 2007 compatible with Windows 8 64 bit? I have a copy waiting in the wings to install but first I need a truthful okay answer. If the answer is no, I have been told Office 2010 works fine. Right or Wrong?

    Yes it is compatible. Remember to set Windows Update to install patches fo other Microsoft products so you get the service packs and security patches for Office.

    32 bit and 64 bit refer to the amount of memory that the system is designed to address; 32 bit software will run on a 64 bit OS but not the other way around.

    Most 32bit will work on a 64bit OS if you look in your windows drive you will notice a Program Files folder where the 64bit programs get installed and a Program Files (x86) folder where your 32bit compatible programs get installed. Just try it if there is any problems with it then windows normally informs upon installing.

    By default, Microsoft Office 2010 installs the 32-bit version of Office 2010 even if your computer is running 64-bit editions of Windows.
    The 32-bit version of Office 2010 is the recommended option for most people, because it prevents potential compatibility issues with other 32-bit applications, specifically third-party add-ins that are available only for 32-bit operating systems.

    As Office 2007 only comes in 32bit you wont have any compatibility problems with it.

    It works. 32-bit softwares work in x64, but not the other way around.

      Forgot to add 'commonly'.
      So most 32bit softwares can be used in x64.

    According to Microsoft's Compatibility information for the product (found here), it is compatible without requiring any intervention (not patches, updates, or upgrades).
