    Does Windows Live Workspace work on Windows 7 ? I have two PC’s with XP and Windows Live Workspace works fine on both of them. I can upload, download, and edit files in Windows Live Workspace from either computer with no problem. But when I upload a file to Windows Live Workspace from my new Windows 7 PC, the upload never ends. The little progress circle keeps going around forever. If I try to edit a file in Windows Live Workspace from my Windows 7 PC that was uploaded from one of the XP machines, then I get the message “This document was checked out to your local drafts folder but the local copy has moved or is on a different computer. The document can only be opened for reading. Discard the checkout to start editing the document.” I don’t know what this message means as I am performing the same user operations as I do on my XP computers. All computers are running MS Office 2003. What could be the problem and how do I fix it, or workaround it? Thank you in advance for any suggestions.

    According to this Microsoft site it does work with Win7. I've never used Live Workspace, but I'm wondering if it is an issue with Office 2003 and Win 7.

    Thanks Ted for your reply.

    I suppose it could be related to MS Office 2003, but I didn't find any mention of Office versions in the Microsoft site that you mentioned, so I don't know how to verify that.....
