    Prob finding prog to install office 2007 on windows 8.1


    I purchased a new computer and it does not have a disc drive and I need my office product installed. I was able to get a digital download and after following the instructions to save it to the desktop and then install it- I'm being asked what program I want to use when I double click it. I do not know what program I should be using and I have no one to help me So, if anyone has any idea, I'd appreciate it. Currently when I right click on the icon I see Internet Explorer, Windows Media Player- things of that sort. Thanks in advance.

    My notebook doesn't have a optical drive either. Here's how I got Office 2010 on it. On my desktop pc, I put my Office 2010 dvd-rom in and copied everything on it to a flash drive. You only really need the setup.exe, but I played it safe. I used the flash drive on the notebook and Office installed piece of cake. Hope that helps you. 2007 should do the same.

    I just put my old Office 2007 Home & Student dvd-rom in and it's the setup.exe file. Copy that to a flash drive and install it that way.

    Sounds like the default association for .EXE is mesed up. Restore it here: Default File Associations - Restore in Windows 8

    Scroll down to .exe.
