I am moving to a newer Win 11 machine and installed my old Office 2007. I REALLY don’t want an annual subscription and 2007 is good enough. Anyways, my brewing spreadsheet has some active X buttons that no longer worked when running on the new machine. Since Office 2007 is out of service it took a bit to figure out. In the end I found some recommendations to get “Microsoft Office Configuration Analyzer Tool 1.2” to scan for issues. Of course Microsoft doesn’t have a link anymore, but I found one with a simple google search.
After running a scan it said I didn’t have two updates and was able to get taken to pages where I could download the update. After installing the first one Windows said it was already installed. But the second one went through an installation. After that Active X controls are working again!
Links to the updates I tried
