    locast installed Office 2007 on a new WIndows 7 machine. The installation
    went through without error. But now I cannot open any of the Office 2003
    files. The error I get is as below. The files are on a local drive and not
    read only.

    Excel cannot open the file <filename>. The document may be read-only or
    corrupted.

    <filename> cannot be accessed. THe file may be corrupted, located on a
    server that is not responding or read only.

    Please help.
    Thanks much.
