Q: Win7/Vista - after dual booting I cannnot find Microsoft Office Suite This thread is locked from future replies

I have set up a Win 7 dual boot on my laptop which had Vista Home. The C drive has vista along with all my programs including Microsoft Office suite 2003 and 2007.
When in Win 7  I can find and use some programs eg Picassa, Photofiltre, but I cannot even see the Microsoft Office Suites, they are not listed under All Programs on the C drive.
I have tried copying a shortcut to Word (in Vista) on the Win7 desktop folder, but it tells me when I click that I can only use shortcuts on programs that are installed?
As I teach seniors computer I need to be able to access the Office Suites from Win7 is there any way this can be achieved?
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Answer

A:

You're welcome, Mike.   Dual-boot systems don't automatically share programs.

The Microsoft Software License Terms (MSLT) for the 2007 Microsoft Office System should answer your licensing question.  I'm not a Microsoft employee or a lawyer, so I won't try to interpret them.

Answer

A:

You have to explicitly install Microsoft Office in Windows 7 to use it in Windows 7.  The installation process will add the Office programs to the All Programs menu.
