I think it should also be possible to save a file, because any office 2007 crashed when i tried to save a file on 3718.

it should offcourse be fully workable..

I did a bit of playing around, here is my notes:

* Office 2007 wont install on LH4074 (could it be that it needs a newer version of windows installer?)

* None of the portable version of "OneNote" that i found works (thats a requirement)

* Saving in the portable word/excel/powerpoint makes it crash

Well, it's the .NET Version that plays the biggest part here if I remember correctly. Have you got the .NET 2.0 RTM installed?

(Going to take a bit longer since I'm having to reinstall 4074 >< )

Do I just have to post it with some screenshots if i managed to do that?

And about this:
Quote:
Install Office 2007 on Longhorn 4074


Is it also allowed to just get it running, or does it have to be installed completely (as it would be on windows vista).

Nice competition. Do you make it, and give to money then to BA or what?

He wants it fully working, preferably installed completely, and he gives money to BA once the person has posted instructions that he got to work ;)

To say it simple.

Win the competition, Leon pays BA, he then uses the winners name. So if you are a advanced member, you coud grab access to the VIP group.

PS. I know hounsell already posted :wink:

So far:
I took a fresh install of 4074, and first installed the Visual C++ 2005 Redist, followed by the .NET 2.0 Installer. I used the .config trick to get explorer to use the old .NET.

Office 2007 then installed fine for me.

I then set all the Office 07 EXEs to XP Compatibility mode and 'Allow non-admins to run this app' (though you may not have to check the second). This got me running apps with all but the open/save functionality. It appears to be an issue related to the comdlg32 and comctl32 libraries in 4074, I'm now trying to get the XP/Server 2003 versions in, to see if that helps.

An update of windows installer worked on 3718 (with modified files ofcourse, so it didn't check if the OS was compatible)
I won't be in this time, i really don't have time to get longhorn running again.

Nope, mine was a completely clean install with just .NET 2.0 and VC++ 2005 Redist.
