Windows 7 guest + MS Word?

Postby PhBfr » 5. Mar 2020, 20:09

Hi to all!

Is it possible to have a guest virtualbox with a vm Windows 7 but with Word available?

Should i need my license number of Office?

Thanks for any help welcomed!

Versions of Word compatible with Windows 7 can run in a Virtualbox Windows 7 guest.

I'm not a lawyer, and Microsoft is the authority on Microsoft product licensing, but it is safe to say that if Microsoft limits your Office license to one computer, you will need another license to run Word in your guest. Consult Microsoft for further questions on licensing.

Scottgus1, thanks for your reply.

I don't really know which kind of licence i have.
I suppose multi users available.

But my post was more about if it is feasible or not.

I suppose that from an ISO install of the vm, all applications are available ?

From a website, ftp or smbmount ?

Thanks for your help.

Once you get the guest OS installed, internet should be possible in the guest. You can download installers, or you can use Guest Additions Shared Folders to make a shared folder to the host PC so you can pass files to and from the guest.
