There's been a lot of 'back & forth' regarding the compatibility of Microsoft Office 2008 and OSX 10.7, so I decided to check for myself.

 

1 new copy of Office 2008 later, installation was perfectly normal, the installer runs the same way it did under 10.6.8 and the application (all of it) works perfectly.

 

So:

 

MS Office 2008 is compatible with OSX 10.7

    I did the same thing the week Lion was released, and posted a similar post. Good to know others are having the same experience.

    he gents, do you know why my Office 2008 is not running under Lion? I had the latest version of Office 2008, and now on a new IMac it says that Office is not installed correctly? By the way, all programs were transferred from a previous Mac. Thanks!

    I would sugest that you install Lion on a seperate partiton and test it yourself to see if you'll have a 'trouble free experience'.

    I have read somewhere, (but can't find it again at the moment) that Installing a new copy of Office 2008 on Lion only works if you have a new installer CD. I have heard that if your Installer CD is 12.0.x than, that version is PPC and requires Rosetta (and will not install), but if your Installer CD has version 12.1.x or higher on it, that installer version is not PPC based and does not need Rosetta, so it will linstall in Lion.

     

    Can anyone verify this?

     

    Thanks
