I originally had windows 7 x64 and I decided to upgrade to Windows 8. I did the online upgrade to Windows 8 (I think it was Pro) for $40. After the upgrade was complete, I went about exploring the new OS. Everything was fine until I tried to open up Excel Files. I paid for Office when I bought my laptop, and was able to navigate to the "Windows.old" folder and found my microsoft office products. However, when I try to run them, I get an error saying something like "This operating system is not configured to run this program." Is there something that I can do to get my office working again?
Also, I had powerDVD9 or 9.5, and the program seems to have completely disappeared. I have a blu ray drive on my laptop, but without some sort of program to utilize that, it is kind of useless.
