Restoring Office 2007 from a backup RRS feed

  • Question

  • How does one restore Office 2007 from a backup?  My computer is on life support at this time. I tried to restore some of my files including Works 2007 along with Office 2007 and am getting nowhere.  Any ideas!!

  • Is this a question related to Windows Home Server?

  • I assume this is off topic here unless you are using Windows Home Server.

    The most Windows applications cannot be restored by copying some files or folders. You either need to reinstall them with installation media and in the case of Office the original product key or restore the entire machine, if you have a full backup from the machine in a status with the application still working. (And in this case save the later created data files do some external disk or to Homeserver share before starting this restore process, since you would lose them otherwise.)
