Hi all - I'm cringing already at the responses I suspect I'm going to get to this question.

I've had to reformat my hard-drive (again). I backed up everything to an external hard-drive and specifically selected everything in the Microsoft Office folders.

Of course, now, the software won't load. The error I get is "the operating system is not presently configured to run this application."

Why do I care? Because I lost my stinking Office 2007 cd (and case ... with the key ...).

My reformatted hard drive has a "Windows Old" file. Any solution contained in there?

Thanks in advance.

how did you back up the software - did you do an image copy or ghost copy of the harddrive - or just copy some files

if just copied some files - then you are going to need to find the CD and key

as you formatted and re-installed across the harddrive - I'm not sure theres much you can do

I think you know the answer - unless you have proof of ownership of office 2007 to discuss with MS - I think you will have to buy it again
