Is it true that MS Office Suite will not run on Lion?

is it true that MS Office Suite will not run on Lion?

Office 2004 was written for PowerPC.  To run Office 2004 on an Intel based Mac, you need Rosetta to translate PowerPC instructions to Intel instructions.  OS X Lion no longer includes or supports Rosetta.  As such, any application written for PowerPC no longer work on Lion, including Office 2004.
Office 2008 and Office 2011 were written for Intel.  They'll work just fine on OS X Lion.
To address your problem, you can do one of the following:
1) Reinstall OS X Snow Leopard from a backup, if you made one.
2) Upgrade to Office 2011.
3) You could use a suite of productivity apps that can import Office documents, such as OpenOffice, or Apple's iWorks. There will be some incompatibilities between these applications and Office though.

  • My office professional will not run with windows 8.1

    my office professional will not run with windows 8.1 It ran fine on 7 and 8 but not 8.1

      Microsoft Windows 8.1 officially supports all currently supported Microsoft Office versions including Office 2013 / 2010 / 2007 / 2003 , and may be even earlier versions unofficially. I use Microsoft Office Professional Plus on my Windows 8.1 and it runs fine with no issues.   Could you try what has already been suggested by others including Big_Dave and reinstall Microsoft Office with complete reboot/restart  between uninstall/new installation <restart, not shut down and start over>. If this doesn't work, please post again if installation went fine, what exactly is the error code (if any), what is the problem exactly, any screenshots ?

  • I have a Novatel U998 Turbo Stick that will not run on Lion because it is designed for 32 bit. HELP

    I have a Novatel U998 Turbo Stick that will not run on Lion. Can Lion be run as 32 bit? If so - how??

    Lion includes a hybrid Kernel, as well 32bit and 64bit core OS. By default it will boot the 64bit part.
    press 3+2  keyboard combo on bootup. This forces 32bit mode for the Kernel ( the apps are still 64bit default ). 6+4 will force 64bit mode.
    The 32bit Kernel can load 32bit drivers ( kernel extensions = *.kext files in /system/library/extensions ).
    The 64bit Kernel will not load any 32bit drivers
    if a Application makes problems in its native 64bit mode, you can force it to run in 32bit compatibility mode by revealing it in Finder, "get-info" on the Apps Icon and checkmark "run in 32bit mode".
    No matter which kernel is booted, 32 or 64 Lion can always execute 32 and 64bit apps.

  • InDesign CS4 will not run under Lion

    I have InDesign CS4 and Design Suite CS3. All my other CS3 apps run under Lion. The Upgrade to Lion failed leaving my internal unbootable, so I installed and migrated to an external drive.

    There is a very long list of incompatibilities with Lion:
    http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/905/cpsid_90508.html
    I'm sure there are many more that are unknown.
    FWIW, I highly recommend sticking with Snow Leopard for now and when you do upgrade, do so as a clean install.

  • Adobe Suite will not run with most recent Java after I have installed Yosemite

    I have updated to Yosemite for my Mac, when trying to open Adobe Photoshop it prompted me to install Java 6, which I installed, then Java said to update to 8, which I did. My photoshop and other adobe suite programs still will not open (except Bridge) and keeps coming up with the error message to open the webpage to download DL1572.

    This is a strange error. I had the same problem but my CC is running.
    Which is your version of Photoshop please?

  • Is it true that DVD Studio Pro will not burn HD discs?

    I an considering shooting in HD and editing that in Final Cut Express, but I have been told that DVD Studio Pro won't create a HD disc without a very expensive addition of something called Blue-Ray. Are there any advantages of shooting in HD, if the final disc won't support it? Would the aspect ratio be 16:9, but with no better definition?
    Thanks, Bob

    You're better off putting it into Compressor and using one of the DVD presets such as DVD Best Quality 90 mins. That will give you much better quality than DVD SP's built-in compressor.
    SD stands for Standard Definition and refers to NTSC, PAL, SECAM, etc, depending on which country you are in.
    In DVD SP you can change the aspect ratio settings so that it will display in 16:9 on a widescreen TV but letterboxed on a 4:3 screen.

  • IWork '09 programs will not run on Lion

    I have iWork 09 installed on my MacBook Pro.  After installing Lion, none of the three software programs will open.  I get an error telling me to contact the developer and make sure I am running the most current version of the software.  I have run all the standard Software Updates and everything seems to be up to date.  I have tried downloading the iWork updater v9.1 but when I run it, it tells me that my version of Keynote is newer than the update and then quits.
    Anyone have any ideas?

    Hi. 
    I have read in these forums and am still lost.  I know my answer should be in hre somewhere, but if it is I am unable to understand it, so be patient as I may be reasking an already answered question.
    I try to be a good lil girl and follow forum rules, but am lost here.
    I bought a new laptop, a Dell 17R  It runs Win 7 I think. Lots of ROM/RAM.  I dowloaded the desktop program from bb dot com and cannot get it to work.  First it asked me to trouble shoot, and reconfigured the DT prog for Win XP.
    It then acknowledged my Torch and dld my photos.  Then it decided I didn't have space and undid whatever it did.
    NOW I cannot get the program, once it opens to recognise my phone at all! ACK!!
    I need someone who understands this gobbltygook to explain to me what to do.  I need to unload my photos, as I use my phone to take pix more than I would have thought.
    I am a photog, and it's better than my first digital this Torch 9800 is, and video quality, OMG, but the vids are too big to upload from the phone..........(IDK why cuz it did at Christmas?)
    Anyway, please help me here, as I can use a computer, e-mail, Facebook, Picassa, other than that, IDK too much about them.  (It took my YEARS to spring for this laptop)
    Thank you in advance for your patience.

  • Java will not run in IE9

    I find this problem posted all over the internet -- however, I have found few answers and no solutions that work.
    Java will not run in IE9 
    In the last three days I have installed Java 7.5 at least five times (after total uninstalls).
    I have Windows 7 Home premium with all updates installed.  Anti-virus programs are installed.
    Even the java website   http://www.java.com/en/download/testjava.jsp cannot detect the Java program in IE9.  It displays the following message:  “No working Java was detected
    on your system.  Install Java by clicking the button below.”
    I know you don’t want to hear about other browsers, however, this is part of the diagnoses – Java works fine in Chrome.  (Obviously, there are some programs that can only be accessed in IE.)
    I have tried turning off the firewall, anti-virus AVG, active x filtering, and every other program.  I have cleared the browsing history, cookies, etc.  50 times = nothing works.
    I experienced that Java did work once and only once in IE9 after each of two new reinstallations of Java 7.5.
    Process Explorer shows that Java is running, I’ve included a screen- shot (hope it shows up)
    All knowledgeable answers are appreciated.

    Hi,
    Have you tried the compatibility mode in Internet Explorer 9? Or does this issue occur to previous Internet Explorer versions?
    For reference about compatibility mode:
    http://blogs.msdn.com/b/ie/archive/2010/10/19/testing-sites-with-browser-mode-vs-doc-mode.aspx
    How to use Compatibility View in Internet Explorer 9
    You could try to deselect the “Automatically Detect Settings” to check how it works.
    And enable the scripting of Java applets settings:
    1. Click "Tools" --> "Internet Options"  
    2. Next, select the Security Tab, and select the "Custom Level" button
    3. Scroll down to "Scripting of Java applets"
    4. Make sure the "Enable" radio button is checked.
    5. Click OK to save your preference.
    Or you could try to change the settings in group editor:
    Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Internet Explorer\Internet Control Panel\Security Page\Internet Zone\Java Permissions
    Meanwhile, I suggest you could
    reset Internet Explorer settings to see the results.
    Hope this helps.

    I just downloaded Firefox 5 and it said that my Yahoo toolbar will not work with it. Is this true? If so I will not use this new version and will switch to another browser if Firefox stops supporting the Yahoo toolbar. Thank you.

    Add-ons contain a range of compatible Firefox versions, and Firefox honors the listed range by disabling the add-on if you are trying to run it on an unlisted version.
    I'm sure Yahoo! will update its toolbar eventually, but not every add-on maker supports beta versions of software.

  • I'm trying to sync Outlook calendar (office 2010?win 8) with my iphone 4s. All works well when running control panel manually but it will not run automatically after that. Anyone got any ideas

    I'm trying to sync outlook calendar and contacts via icloud control panel. Everything works when control panel is run manually but it will not run automatically after that. Anyone got any ideas

    I am having a very similar problem. Until 12 hours ago, I was using my recently replaced 4s (with iOS7) flawlessly, receiving emails and calendar info from Exchange (Outlook 2010). But starting last night, it all stopped. I have deleted and added the account several times, tried making simple changes (considering whether the username is case sensitive, or not, etc.) and cannot fix it. I have iOS 7.04. Interestingly, the first time I changed the case to lower case, it seemed to respond immediately, and downloaded many emails with no sender, no content, and with a 12/31/69 date. Yes, 1969. And then nothing happened. Help please!

  • Office 2013 applications will not run as a domain users

    I have a windows 7 64-bit pc with 2013 office home and and business installed. When trying to access Office as a domain user the programs will not run. Is there a fix for this other than making the users local admins?

    Hi,
    Which version of Office 2013 did you deployed, Windows Installer-based version or the Click-to-Run version?
    Did you install the Office product with local administrator account? I notice that the users must be local administrators on their computers to install Office:
    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee624360.aspx
    If we add the local admin right to the user, can the Office programs be launched? If so, repair the Office programs and then remove the local admin right. See if it can work.
    Best regards,

    I've tried removing Office 2011 completely and re-installing to no avail.

    Unfortunately, my experience with Office is that somethoping will get corrupted in your account that prevents it from running. I have never figured out  what exactly needs to be removed to make it work again.
