    Is there an 'Office Profile Tool' or a 'Save my settings wizard' for Office 2007. The Microsoft site seems to indicate that it exists but is not available for download as with earlier versions of Office.

    The "Save My Settings" wizard was discontinued in Office 2007. Microsoft assumes that you have Windows Vista or later, and wants you to use Windows Easy Transfer.

    This is NOT a Windows 7 issue, but a Office 2007 and 2010 issue, so why are you blaming Windows 7 crew?

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Looks more like your run of the mill Microsoft rant rather than a dig at the Windows 7 crew. Actually I thought he was complimentary of Win 7.

    It's hardly a 'run of the mill rant' when MS take a tool which is indispensable to those who need assistance in reinstalling such a complex product as the Office suite, and move it to a place where you need to upgrade your operating system to use it. This might be construed as 'upgrade by bribery'!!!

    I saw the wizard years ago and must admit I ignored it. May be a further test or two to see if it works
